The third one of the six pack was frozen!!! aaagh!!!! Damn, I thought, and purely in the interests of science you understand, I had to test the remaining bottles - all OK. How does a bottle IN THE MIDDLE of a six pack freeze, while the surrounding bottles are OK... __________________ Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

It's summer, 'down there' too, isn't it?

in which the term in Ω × vB is the Coriolis acceleration and the term in Ω × ( Ω × rB) is the centrifugal acceleration. The results are (let α = θ − ωt):

producing a centrifugal acceleration:

Also:

producing a Coriolis acceleration:

Figure 5 and Figure 6 show these accelerations for a particular example.

Which proves the Frozen Beer, to be no less than a Miracle!

We might need some peer review and scientific corroboration at some point as well..

The others were probably on the ragged edge of freezing, but had higher pressure, reducing the freezing point slightly. Was it frozen before you popped it? If you want some science, you'll have to look at a T-S diagram for water..... Was the middle one the first one you popped?

Ah yes, that Temperature - Entropy diagram - Mollier strikes again....

Maybe that bottle was closest to the refrigerant coil in fridge?

I hate beer that cold, even in the summer. Alcohol abuse.
