Hand vs. Liquid Nitrogen and the Leidenfrost Effect

I stick my hand (momentarily) directly into liquid nitrogen but don't suffer any injuries due to the Leidenfrost effect.

The Leidenfrost effect is the formation of a gas barrier between a hot surface and a boiling liquid if the temperature difference is great enough. This gas barrier greatly slows the heat transfer between the two and allows the liquid to last longer and consequently the hot surface to remain hot longer. This effect can be seen in a frying pan as it's being heated. At first the water quickly boils as it's dropped in but at a hot enough temperature the Leidenfrost effect takes over and makes the water skate around the surface lasting a very long time.

Liquid nitrogen vs. a room temperature object will also exhibit the effect preventing it from instantly freezing the object... such as my hand.

In my high school our chemistry teacher gave us all cups full of liquid nitrogen one time and told us we could splash them at each other

It is actually more dangerous to wear low quality gloves while working with LN, because it can soak in and burn you...

@Daniel Villalobos you may not know it, but abc is based on the Latin pronunciation. This is used by all European languages. only in English language the letters are pronounced differently. Many Englishmen and other English speaking people do not know this or ignore it. pronounce foreign words in spanish, french or any other languages except asian ​​and english and you will pronounce it correctly. even asians are doing it well. Mainy it is only an english thing.

He is pronouncing it like all Americans do. People pronounce words differently in different places - it's a thing.

It’s quite dangerous. Liquid nitrogen can absorb all heat energy from your hands if you leave contained long enough.

I've seen this: in an recrystallization procedure during my organic chemistry lab, when I brought ethanol into a pipet some accidentally came out onto the hot plate. But instead of vaporizing it seemed to immediately bead up and run off the hot plate.
