CREATE FIRE BY MAGIC
MATERIAL REQUIRED : Dry pieces of paper, a metal plate (20 cm diameter), potassium Permanganate powder, glycerine
PREPARATION : 1. Arrange some pieces of paper on a metal plate.
2. Put a piece of paper with some potassium permanganate
Powder in the centre.
PERFORMANCE 1. Acting as if you are pouring ‘ghee’ , put two or three drops of glycerine Over the potassium permanganate powder.
2. Glycerine reacts with potassium permanganate. First smoke comes
Out and then the pieces of paper start burning with flame.
EXPLANATION : Sufficient heat is evolved in the reaction between potassium
Permanganate and glycerine. This heat burns the paper pieces.
