amazing science experiment.

To perform this Cutting through Ice science experiment all you will need is an empty bottle with cork, ice cube, a piece of metal wire and two objects of equal weight. First of all place the empty bottle on a flat surface and then to a piece of metal wire fix two objects of equal weight. Now take an ice cube and place it over the cork of the bottle. Hang the metal wire with two objects attached to it on the ice cube.

Place the whole thing outside the house in a frosty weather. After some time you will be amazed to see that the wire has driven itself through the ice without dividing it into two pieces. This happens because of the property of ice to melt under pressure.

The wire with two objects puts pressure on the ice due to which it melts at the point of contact of wire and ice, but since the weather is pretty cold the ice which has been melted into water turns into ice again.

You may have observed that the Cutting through Ice science experiment is quite simple to carry out and at the same time can prove to be pretty amusing for children. Kids can try this experiment at their home and show it to their family members or friends.
