You can put it down the drain, nothing is really stopping you from doing so but you shouldn't put it down the drain. Liquid nitrogen is extremely cold and can have explosive consequences once it sublimates into a gas and could potentially burst your pipes.

What happens when you add liquid nitrogen to lava?

The liquid nitrogen has enough coldness to completely cool down lava, but also it has the exact same energy to make lava explode. Think of it as pouring liquid nitrogen on your hand, but if you don't put the right amount of heat (helium) and at the right time your your hand will fall off. Think of your hand falling off as explosion.

Why does the water bottle containing liquid nitrogen explode?

Liquid Nitrogen in a water bottle will explode because of pressure build up. Liquid nitrogen vaporizes rather quickly and when it transitions from liquid to gas, the pressure increases if kept at the same volume. Think of boiling water in a closed container. It is similar to that but liquid nitrogen evaporates at much lower temperature, it will explode at room temperature. Let's say you submerged this water bottle below the boiling point of liquid nitrogen and put liquid nitrogen in the bottle, the bottle will not explode. It is a mechanical explosion (simple transfer of forces) not a chemical explosion like with hydrogen where hydrogen gas ignites.


How do you dispose of liquid nitrogen?

Can you pour grease down the drain?

You can but you shouldn't. Liquid grease will eventually solidify. When it solidifies in your pipes, this results in a clog. Put the grease in a container (like an empty tin can) and put it in the freezer. When it solidifies, you can put it in the trash.
