INTRODUCTION The atmospheric pressure is the pressure exerted by the weight of air in the atmosphere of Earth. The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of pressure defined as 101325 Pa. If we heat a closed container. For example if in a room was burning and suddenly there was no more oxygen. the fire would only be extinguished. . It will crease temperature and pressure.Remember that for there to be combustion there must be oxygen as the oxygen. because the atoms in the fuel are mixed with oxygen. but this only occur when we have a constant volume. The experiment that will be presented refers to combustion when there is or is no air.

MATERIALS  Candle  Dish :  Crystal glass : :  Water  Fire .

(You must wait that the flame is ready) 5. . Then. The flame goes out because while the flame light this produce Carbone Dioxide and causes that the oxygen lower. you put the dish on a table horizontally. you light the candle. you paste the candle on the dish with the wax. accordingly the flame lack oxygen and it goes out. Next. 2. 4. Finally. (You must look at this experiment in detail) The candle flame heats the air in the crystal glass. Conclusion For that candle is lit it is necessary three factors a spark. STEPS 1. the flame candle will goes out very fast) 3. When the flame goes out. meanwhile in the glass temperature begins to rise and so the pressure therefore begins to function as a pacifier until candle goes out. First. After that. oxygen and fuel (candle). then when is starts to cover the began to fill with carbon monoxide and the oxygen is going down. (if you don´t paste well the candle on the dish. the cool air in the crystal glass down up and the air and the water go up in the crystal glass because the pressure in the crystal glass is lower that the atmospheric pressure. you fill the dish with water to a quarter of it. It would fall) (if the candle is short. you cover the candle with the inverted crystal glass. and this hot air expands.
