Science experiment: Fireproof balloon
Everybody knows what happens when you add a flame to a balloon: BANG! But, what happens when you add a little water to your balloon and then the flame? Here's an experiment that might get you and your family hooked on science.
* Candle n Several balloons
* Matches n Water
STEP 1: Fill one of the balloons with air and tie it off. Using the matches light the candle and place the balloon in the flame.
STEP 2: Fill a different balloon with water. Add a little air and tie it off. Using the matches light the candle and once again place the balloon in the flame.
The balloon with water did not pop because the water soaked up the heat. The heat energy quickly passed through the balloon and heated the water on the inside.
KFVS12 and the Southeast Missourian are teaming up for science. Every Tuesday you'll find an experiment from the KFVS Heartland Science Lab in the Class of 2morrow section of the Southeast Missourian. Grab the ingredients and join KFVS science reporter Jason Lindsey live on KFVS at 5 p.m. every Wednesday. More science experiences can be found at www.kfvs12.com and www.semissourian.com.
