Hands on Fire Experiment!!!




                                           Hypothesis
  • Lucas : I predict that when we add the butane gas in the water with the dish washing liquid it will create a lather and when I scoop it up it and it is ignited I predict that it will light but my hand will not burn because the soap and water is protecting it and since there is very few amounts of butane gas that it won’t produce lots of heat.`

    Francis: I predict that when you add the three materials in the bowl, it will create some lather and when you place the bubbles in your hand in an even amount, when it is ignited i predict that either me or Lucas's hand will not burn as what fire does do to your hand, because the materials are protecting the fire from doing damage to your hand (or any other part of the body), and since you should be advised to put very few amount of butane gas in the bowl, it will create very little heat.

                               Reasoning for Experiment

The Dish washing liquid reacts with the so called chemical compound, and reacts in a way which the dish washing reacts with bubbles with it’s own substance, and reacts with the butane by expanding the bubbles. Once you have developed the specific compound you can lit the bubbles in your hand with a match, and when you light our hands,  it will  not burn because the soap and water is protecting it and since there is very few amounts of butane gas that it won’t produce lots of heat.

Materials:
Steps:
  • Pour water into a bowl and fill until full.
  • Pour a wise amount of dish washing liquid into the bowl containing water.(If you want more bubbles, more dish washing liquid.)
  • Get the butane gas and tip it upside down and let it release into the water containing dish washing liquid.
  • Dip your hand and act as if it is a bucket, and scoop a large amount of bubbles into your hand (Make sure to get your hand as wet as possible).
  • Get a lighter, and light the fire onto your hand containing the bubbles.
