The rapid explosive like reaction of the water bursting outwards causes the white coloration.
All popcorn contain a small amount of water. When the popcorn gets heated the water inside the popcorn kernel turns to steam. The steam then starts to pressure the kernel shell and soon bursts making the kernel inside out, and the soft stuff inside the kernel puffs.
Popcorn pops period because in the kernel (ker-nelle) or nut, there is water.So when the heat or fire touches the water inside the kernel,the water creates pressure and the kernel turns inside out which creates what we Americans now call popcorn.
the percent of water in a popcorn kernel is 29.32%
Each kernel has water in the middle. The heat causes the water to expand, basically turning the kernel inside out.
The air and water vapor inside the kernel is expanding.
i think yes because popcorn can only be popped very well in heat so the water in the kernel can make the kernel go inside out.
The inner kernel has a very tiny amount of water inside, when that is heated it expands and POP goes the kernel.
Popcorn pops because inside of each kernel there is a small amount of water. When the popcorn is heated it steams up inside which causes an explosion, which of course as we know, makes popcorn.
Yes, if the water inside each kernel drys up, it won't pop.
I wouldn't advise soaking your popcorn. Popcorn "pops" because 1) there's water INSIDE the kernel and 2) there's a hard shell to hold the water in. Together, these make it possible to build up STEAM inside the kernel until it bursts the shell, effectively turning the kernel inside-out, puffing it up in the process.
As popcorn is heated, the water content inside the hull of the kernel converts to steam, which tries to expand. This presser from the expanding steam ruptures the hull of the kernel.
When a popcorn kernel pops water in the kernel goes from the liquid phase to the gas phase.
