See What Happens After You Submerge A Sparkler Underwater

Is it possible to make fireworks underwater?
See What Happens After You Submerge A Sparkler UnderwaterOh yes it is! With this little polytechnic experimentation, you sure can witness the underwater fireworks in no time!

It all looks surprisingly simple: just take a sparkler, wrap it in duct tape, set it on fire and drop it in a bowl of water. Contrary to your expectations, it will continue burning!

Plus witness  some very cool bubbles and tiny underwater explosions that’ll definitely catch your neighbors’ attention!

See What Happens After You Submerge A Sparkler UnderwaterWondering how it works?

This is because sparklers contain Oxidizer (usually Potassium nitrate or Potassium perchlorate) as a oxygen source instead of getting oxygen from the air. As a result, they are able to burn even when they are placed in an environment where oxygen is absent.

Pretty amazing, right?

See What Happens After You Submerge A Sparkler UnderwaterNow you know this science experiment looks like loads of fun, not to mention easy to perform.

However, I must insist that those who want to give it a try be extremely cautious, and make sure you won’t do anything reckless that might put you and your neighborhood in danger.
