What if I fill liquid nitrogen in tube of two wheeler?? Is it OK?

  • It'd be ok, but would give no benefit at all.

    it would destroy the tube at that temperature

  • @Trengot No, it wouldn't be OK. The qn says liquid nitrogen!

  • @andy256 True, I missed the liquid part. I'd be impressed if you could even do that.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's just too darn dangerous!

Liquid Nitrogen boils at -196 Degrees Celsius (321 degrees Fahrenheit) and is cold enough that rubber will become brittle. Its probably not a good idea as I am fairly sure the the brittle rubber tube will not hold the pressure created as the liquid Nitrogen boils.

View before you do it. and if you decide to go ahead, ring the emergency room before hand and book yourself a bed.

If you mean filling tires with pure nitrogen gas, refer This question


You are 78% of the way there already.

Air is 78% nitrogen, 20% oxygen, 2% other gases.

Therefore, the difference gained in using pure nitrogen is going to be minimal. And accurately gauging air pressure will be tricky.
