Fire Water Balloon
http://www.mocomi.com presents: Can a Balloon catch fire? REQUIREMENTS 2 Balloons Water Candle Kitchen Lighter WHAT TO DO Fill one of the balloons with air and the other with a little water in it. Light the candle with the kitchen lighter. WHAT HAPPENS When you bring the balloon with only air close to the candle it bursts immediately after it making contact with the flare. Sometimes it explodes even before it makes contact. The second balloon with the water in it when brought close to the candle doesn't explode even though the balloon is kept directly under the flare for some amount of time. WHY THIS HAPPENS This happens because water is a great conductor of heat and does not allow the balloon to over heat.
