Pocket Watch Collab Video: https://youtu.be/K0qkMCVRRBQ SUBSCRIBE!:https:/www.youtube.com/nickipedia SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/Gje03ZuoyLw Check Out Pocket Watch Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCElkh4b877xBOLlRX_6o2ag Science Team! This video is a little bit longer than usual, but we had such great footage I wanted to share it all! I paired up with Pocket Watch (Jetta and Vitaly) to dissolve some fruitcake and “warm up” items (sponges and Styrofoam). Piranha solution is some really gnarly stuff. It’s used in the lab to dissolve organic substrates, which basically means it’s used to get rid of anything that was alive or is alive! Piranha solution is basically a real life breaking bad chemical. You get this incredible reactive solution by mixing a high-grade acid like our 93% sulfuric acid with high concentrate hydrogen peroxide (ours is 35%). The result is a super oxidizing solution. The combination creates an incredibly active oxygen molecule that attacks carbon molecules and hence carbon bonds. These carbon bonds are what holds the fruit cake together, with out them we have a soupy charred mess and that’s exactly what we ended up with. And while we can’t see it some of the carbons making up the fruitcake have turned into carbon dioxide and floated away!

Nice vid, but you should have opened up the cake to see what was inside

acid you didn't try acid

Is it just me or did it look like gold when they added more acid?

Can you use the coffee flamethrower but instead of coffee you use dry ice and put out a fire. can it do that.

I do wonder, what would happen to a soda can when placed in the piranha solution?
Scottish Sceptile (8 months ago)
Wow! Don't try this at home kids!!
Scottish Sceptile (8 months ago)
Although I don't know if normal kids have access to these things lol.

So many strangers behind the camera! 4th wall broken! Haha I kid.

Do a comparison by dissolving the fruitcake in stomach acid (HCl) vs. the piranha soln.

Next time you want to get rid of a fruitcake, just send it to me! I LIKE fruitcake! Delicious!
This is us watching Nick Uhas do science magic: 😲 Thank you so much for hanging out with us, Nick!

Should've cut the leftover mass open.
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
I did actually do this when I was cleaning everything up... it was a black mush the whole way through

That's so cool to see! I'm going to tell my science teacher about your channel!
ThisLazyPersonHasNoLyf (8 months ago)
Will do!
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
awesome, please do!!! And suggest to watch the videos in class : )
Rahul Rakesh (8 months ago)
Hi so cool
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
Thanks! We thought so too... although the smell was pretty bad!

Nick please try to mix potassium/sodium in liquid nitrogen!!!
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
The next time we have some liquid nitrogen we will try this!

How would your solution work with aluminium 👍
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
It would certainly react due to the sulfuric acid, however there is another solution where you mix Sodium Hydroxide and H202... is the "base" version of piranha solution, and that would eat aluminum is seconds!

Hey nick, i started doing mobile videos
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
sweet!

whats the formula of Piranha Solution
Aranyak De (8 months ago)
This was really an interesting one. Waiting for more from you Nick!
Aranyak De (8 months ago)
Nick Uhas Nick, I would really love to see some experiments involving liquid nitrogen and living organisms!
Nick Uhas (8 months ago)
Thanks! We've got some really good vids coming down the pipeline (some from Indonesia, others from Iceland)
