Make snowball Experiment


A snowball is a ball-shaped ball made of snow. The simplest snow ball is made by snowmaking by hand and condensing it into a fist-sized ball. Snowballs are widely used in various games such as snowballing, and snowman making. Compacting it with high pressure will make the snow ball as hard as ice so that it is dangerous if thrown. Snow that is too dry or too cold is difficult to make into a snowball, because it takes a little water to make each ice particles in the snow stick together (cohesion properties).

Under certain conditions, though rare, snowball can snowball and roll off by itself. These conditions include a layer of ice between the snow and the ground so that the snow does not stick. In addition, it takes wind and gravity to push the snow to form the ball
