Science Team! This video is a little bit longer than usual, but we had such great footage I wanted to share it all!
I paired up with Pocket Watch (Jetta and Vitaly) to dissolve some fruitcake and “warm up” items (sponges and Styrofoam).
Piranha solution is some really gnarly stuff. It’s used in the lab to dissolve organic substrates, which basically means it’s used to get rid of anything that was alive or is alive!
Piranha solution is basically a real life breaking bad chemical. You get this incredible reactive solution by mixing a high-grade acid like our 93% sulfuric acid with high concentrate hydrogen peroxide (ours is 35%). The result is a super oxidizing solution. The combination creates an incredibly active oxygen molecule that attacks carbon molecules and hence carbon bonds. These carbon bonds are what holds the fruit cake together, with out them we have a soupy charred mess and that’s exactly what we ended up with.
And while we can’t see it some of the carbons making up the fruitcake have turned into carbon dioxide and floated away!
