Fire Experiment

Equipment needed

Butane gas

Distilled water

Aluminium plate

dish washing liquid

Experiment: create a flammable substance that burn for some seconds and that doesn’t hurt your hand. By lighting it with a march.

Scientific Questions: Does the amount of dish washing liquid affect the flammability of the substance

IV: Amount of dish washing liquid

DV: The temperature of the fire

Controlled Variable: Amount of Butane gas and dish washing liquid




Table of result




Conclution: Based on my data I can conclude that the amount of dish washing liquid effect the intensity of the flame because when we put no soap or 10 ml of soap the fire lasted 5 sec and was 25 degrees Celsius while when we put 50 ml of dish washing liquid the fire lasted 1 sec and was 29.1 degrees Celsius
