Yeah, it is not a fire extinguisher rather a smoke extinguisher. You might be thinking – ‘how can we extinguish smoke?’ You can do this with the help of fire. Let’s try this but this experiment involves fire and smoke. Please do it only under the administration of an adult.
Try it yourself
- Incent stick
- A glass jar (large one with a small narrow neck)
This experiment uses fire (or heat) and so must be administered only by an adult.
Step 1: Using the lighter light up the incent stick. Put off the fire as the stick catches fire to it deep.
Step 2: Keep the burning side of the incent stick into the bottle and fill the bottle with smoke.
Step 3: Now pour little alcohol into the bottle and spin the bottle.
Step 4: Use the lighter to light up the alcohol inside the bottle. Amazing! The fire did the job of smoke extinguisher.
