WELL EVERYONE HAS READ THAT OXYGEN IS VERY NECESSARY FOR COMBUSTION.
BUT HAS EVERYONE TRIED TO PROVE IT BY YOURSELF???
THIS THING WAS TICKLING ME FROM A LONG TIME SO I DECIDED TO KNOW WHETHER IT IS TRUE OR NOT…
SO HERE I PERFORMED A SMALL EXPERIMENT TO GET THE ANSWER OF MY QUESTION…
- 2 DISPOSAL GLASS
- A MATCH BOX
- A CANDLE
- 1 OR 2 POUCHES OF ENO
AIM: TO PROOF OXYGEN IS NECESSARY FOR COMBUSTION.
1 Take some water in a cup.
2 Now light a candle.
3 Keep the burning candle above the cup containing water.
4 Now add the eno in the other cup containing water.
When eno is added to water , it reacts and gives out Carbon Dioxide.
5 Now again light the candle and keep it still above the cup containing eno.
1 When the candle is above the cup containing simple water it continues to burn as it is having a continuous supply of Oxygen.
2 When the candle is above the cup containing eno it’s does not burn any more .It is so because the reaction between eno and water emits out Carbon Dioxide and it cuts off the supply of oxygen and the candle down not burn anymore.
So, here we proved that Oxygen is very necessary for combustion
