Why does hot oil explode when you pour water on it?
Hot oil is hotter than steam. When the water hits the oil, steam is created instantaneously at the oil-water interface. The steam expands violently, creating the apparent explosion.

ANSWER: . It will float.
when hot fat is dropped into water it causes the water it contacts to flash boil. the "explosion" you see is the steam trying to escape.
the oil goes to the bottom and the water gets on top
Meaning: To calm an angry quarrel; to have a soothing effect through tact or skill in dealing with people. Oil sits on top of water, and the water tends to stop washing arou…nd so much with that other substance on top of it. Therefore, if you pour oil on water that is sloshing around, it will calm things down.
No. The oil should drain off of the water. Water and oil don't mix, so there would be no contamination. If there is something else mixed with the oil, though, it can possibly …mix with the water.
When heat is applied to something, it tends to expand. When youpour hot water into something made out of glass, only the insidedilates, and the outside doesn't, since its temp…erature is cooler.If the insides enlarges but the outside doesn't, it cracks. Forthis reason thick glass is more likely to crack, and thinner glassis less likely. Also, the bottom of the glass could expand, while the top doesn't(if the hot water goes straight to the bottom). In any case, thetemperature is higher in one part of the glass and lower inanother, so one part expands and another stays the same size.
Pouring = ruptured pressure vessel
oil does not mix with water, rather, it floats on water this is because oil is less dense than water and they are immiscible solutions
Hot ice, eh?
Water is heavier then Oil, so it goes to the bottom. Once there it evaporates and pushes the oil out into the air. As the oil goes though the air it sucks in more oxygen and e…xplodes.
yes. If you leave it boiling at high temperatures for a certain period of time, the steam produced will be too much for the kettle, and that's when you hear the whistling soun…d. And if you ignore the kettle and leave it continously boiling, there comes a time when the situation falls over the edge, causing the kettle to blow up in 25m diametre. The rate of the procces depends on the size of the kettle and the temperature.
Very cheap or extremely thin glass can, yes - that's why modernheatproof glass was developed. Any glassware designed for kitchen use is safe from breakage if hotliquids are po…ured into it, but any glass might break if it becomesvery hot, and then is suddenly plunged into cold water. Glass cracks because of the temperature difference between theinner and outer layer, glass is a poor conductor, so the innerlayer expands faster than the outer layer, this stress is whatcauses the crack, so the thicker a glass is, the longer it takesfor the heat to transfer to the outer layer, so the more likely itis to crack.

Oil has a higher viscosity than ocean water so, when it's poured from a ship, will tend to prevent local wind waves from breaking, thus making the boat's passage safer. The m…etaphor means, "To calm things down".
No, oil does not pour faster than water
