Smoke Rings

smoke rings

smoke ringsRings are beautiful and nice on our fingers. What if there is a flying ring? How will it be if we have some smoke rings? This is another simple experiment that can be done with just a few items. Let’s then do it.

Try it yourself

You need:

  1. Balloon
  2. An used (but clean) plastic bottle (like 250ml coca cola or Pepsi bottle )
  3. Scissors
  4. Matches or lighter (this experiment must be done only under the supervision of adults)
  5. Incent stick

What next?

Step 1: Using the scissors, cut off the bottom of plastic bottle.

Step 2: Using the scissors, cut off the neck of balloon.

Step 3: Now carefully stretch the bottom part of the balloon around the cut opened space of bottle.

Step 4: Light up the incent stick and blow the fire off after a while, leaving the stick to emit smoke.

Step 5: Now insert the incent stick carefully into the bottle through its mouth and cover its mouth with your fingers. Make sure that the incent stick is not touching the balloon.

Step 6: Take out the incest stick and keeping the bottle horizontal, pat the bottom balloon with your finger.

You will see that smoke emits from the bottle mouth in the shape of a ring.


Why is it happening? How these smoke rings are formed? There must be some logic behind this as well. Try it out and do your own researches and let us know.
