Disappearing Oxygen

Another good single element experiment is place a lit candle in a plate of water.


Then, place a cup over the candle.


When all the oxygen is used up, the candle will go out and the water level will rise in the cup taking the place of the oxygen.

  1. We must do this! I have an experiment coming up where Elijah is going to have an open flame, a flame in a medium jar, and then a flame in a larger jar in order to see how the flames react. I will be sure to remember this for him. NEAT!
