No idea why there was such a long gap between the previous page and this one, but having not done any experiments for a whole term, suddenly Science is back with a vengeance. Two experiments in two consecutive weeks! Then nothing ever again. Bizarre. This one’s straightforward enough: three candles with three jars placed on top of them of different sizes. Which one takes longest to go out? The one with the most air in of course. Thus demonstrating that fire needs air in order to keep burning. Once again though, I haven’t written it up in the most effective way, garbling the conclusion to the extent that I wonder whether I actually understood what had happened. I think, on balance, I probably did understand it. I just didn’t have the writing skill to be able to explain it well. That’s probably because the biggest jar had more time to let the air out and that’s why the burn kept flaming, which needs oxygen more time than the fattest jar and the (thickest) thinnest one. I got a tick anyway, and that’s what counts.
