    where can u get liquid nitrogen?

  3. Jefferson Lab Posted on October 29, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Normally from the Test Lab fill station. Currently, though, we're getting it from the CTF due to construction relating to the Test Lab renovation.

    Specifically? I'm not certain. I believe our Dewars have a relatively high nickel content. Part of the reason why the Titanic sank was that its steel became brittle in the cold waters of the North Atlantic. Don't know its composition was, though.

    What would happen if you spill some of the liquid nitrogen on your hand , by accident. Would it just turn into a gas?

    Reply
  17. Jefferson Lab Posted on December 12, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    It depends on the amount of nitrogen. The initial bits would rapidly change to a gas due to the hand's warmth. But, doing this isn't a free process. The hand looses some thermal energy as the nitrogen boils off. If it's a small amount, that's about all that happens. No real harm is done, much like throwing an ice cube in a swimming pool. If enough nitrogen is used, or if the liquid gets trapped against the skin, portions of the hand would freeze.

    it would float on you hand because the gas under the unevaporated liquid nitrogen would float over the gas… then you would have a couple seconds before it would hurt a lot and then you would have to wipe it off

    Reply
  44. Jefferson Lab Posted on November 1, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    For general use? We get liquid nitrogen from a storage Dewar located at the Test Lab. The Lab gets it from an outside vendor. I believe that Air Liquide holds the current supply contract.

    Reply
  55. Katherine Clairmont Posted on March 17, 2015 at 3:05 am

    I know that cryogenic liquids are dangerous because they're so cold, and in some cases they can displace oxygen from the air (like helium and nitrogen, liquid oxygen won't displace oxygen but it isn't the safest either…) but it seems like the experiments you demonstrate to these kids are, well, kid stuff. I get it, it's necessary to teach the kids about cryogenics.

    Just, is there anything particularly interesting that can be demonstrated with LN2? Or is it all just shrinking volumes of air and freezing plants and suffocating flames?

    And the liquid Nitrogen which flows over the table instead of immediate vapourizing is due to the effect called "Leidenfrost Effect" which actually forms a gas barrier between the table and the Liquid N2. The same thing you can notice when you pour an hot water over the heated plate from your Kitchen. Btw the great illustration of science to make things clear in a most common way!!!
