Science Experiment: How to crush a can without physical force

Gotta love science! This is a fun science experiment anyone can do at home. It’s simple. All you need is an empty can with a small amount of steaming hot water inside of it, and some ice water. The results when you put the can into the ice water are magical.

Ok, it’s not magic, it’s science. And it’s also fun. The hot water inside the can creates steam, and when it hits the ice water, the steam cools down so fast it creates a vacuum and crushes the can instantaneously.
