This explosive demonstration is great for discussing adiabatic compression (rapid compression that raises air temperature) in diesel engines, Ideal Gas Laws, the laws of thermodynamics, and the resourcefulness of ancient people. As air compresses, the temperature increases and combustible material bursts into flames. Comes with cotton, two extra O-rings.
Teacher's Guide and reproducible Student Handout included.
