Crushing a Can – Science Experiment

A fun garbage Science experiment that shows the power of pressure through the crushing of a drink can.

You will need: 

  – an empty soft drink can 
  – a bowl of icy water 
  – long tongs
  – an adult to supervise 

 Procedure: 

  1. Put a tablespoon of water in a can and place it directly on your stove burner. Bring it to a boil. 
  2. Then grab the can with your tongs and flip it over into the icy water. 

*The can will crush from the pressure.
