The an initial answer i heard was that the water will certainly evaporate as well quickly.. Not certain if this also relates or not.

You are watching: What might happen if you add water rapidly to your product in a hot crucible

Second prize was that the crucible will certainly break.

Third answer was that there might be a steam explosion that might hurt your challenge or hands.

For context, we are heating a magnesium strip to form magnesium oxide. We add water to convert the continuing to be magnesium nitride come the oxide. Currently we just need to know what happens if we include this water also quickly.

Compounds the release energy on solvation will certainly sputter, splash, and pop violently unless added to an currently solvent. Classic example is fuming acid concentrates sizzle as soon as you add water come them. Ideal rule of ignorance is add solute come solvent. Be double as careful with reactive solutes like magnesium salts. Usually best not to add solvent to dried solute.

So when the product is hot, it will sputter, splash, and also pop, yet when the cools come room temperature, this will not occur?
