Eli5 what I'm hearing and seeing?
No. Not. Again. Not this series of 4000 reposts of various red hot metals dropping into various liquids. No.
So, does the pocket around the metal sit there for a bit because the water is being heated to boiling slowly? That doesn't really make sense to me, but I can't really figure out why that pocket of what appears to be air doesn't rise through the more dense water immediately.
From what I understand, doing this is not very smart. Very hot metal introduced to water can explode I think.
I'd like to see a temp probe on the cup so I can see the speed of the energy exchange.
It can get super heated so when you put a metal spoon in to stir it, it explodes all over you. I guess you just have never over heated it or something
