The Leidenfrost effect is demonstrated with water and food dye dripped with syringes on an aluminum pan heated by a hot plate at approximately 550 degrees Fahrenheit. The Leidenfrost effect occurs when a liquid is on an object that is significantly higher then its boiling point (the Leidenfrost point). The Leidenfrost point for water is approximately 475 degrees Fahrenheit. An insulating vapor layer propels the liquid above the hot object, keeping that liquid from boiling. From 0:00 to 2:00 is the original filming at 60 fps. At 1:32 snow is dropped on the pan and food dye added to it. 2:01 to 2:59 is a repeat of the snow scene slowed to 30 fps. A Canon rebel T2I is used for the filming.
