Will & Larry: The Exploding Trash Can


Will, physics major, and Silent Larry, physics and chemistry major, from the College of Science and Math use their knowledge to demonstrate how cool science can be. In this video with the use of liquid nitrogen, a trash can will explode and be lifted up around 30 ft up in the air within a few minutes. 🤯

Chemistry and physics are the fundamental backbone of all science and technology.
