# Spectacular experiment a gas burner against a cartridge and other objects made of glass and metal

(ORDO NEWS) — The flame of an ordinary burner turned out to be an unexpectedly powerful tool for the total destruction of a variety of things – nothing survived!

We invite you to watch a video of the experience with heating various objects made of glass and metal with a gas burner.

In addition to the cartridge, a glass and a copper tee participated in the heating experiment. None of the subjects could resist the fire of the burner.

So, what are the results of the experiment with heating? The glass shattered, the tee melted, so much so that it split the granite slab on which it stood, and the cartridge, from which the gunpowder was prudently removed, expired with lead and bent. We suggest that you conduct another experiment with a gas burner. Due to its safety, it is also suitable for home use.

With the help of this heating experiment, you will clearly see the property of metals and magnetism at work. To do this, take a wine cork, pierce it with a thin long nail in the center so that on the other side the end of the nail protrudes from the cork (it is better to cut its tip, making it straight).

Cut pieces of the same size from thin metal wire, and then stick them into the cork at a slight angle downwards. Put a coin on the neck of the bottle and install a cork with wire.

Nearby at a height equal to the ends of the protruding wire, install a magnet so that it can attract the nearest piece of wire. Light a torch nearby.

You will see how the structure with the wire begins to rotate as it heats up. What is the result of this experiment with heating?

The answer lies in the property of metals and magnetism. The metal wire, when heated, loses the ability to be magnetized and the magnet begins to attract the next wire, thereby rotating the structure.

As for the experiments with glass heating (in the video we saw how the glass shattered), the processing temperature of glass of different composition is different.

The flame temperature that can be obtained on a gas burner can also be different and depends on the composition of the combustible gas mixture and on the combustion conditions.
