Heat - this is quite relativecharacteristic that needs to be clarified. For example, if we take the high temperature of 1000 degrees Celsius, already have something to push off.
Such temperatures even higher can be created in various ways, for example, an electric discharge in gases, or by chemical reaction.
But practice shows that any process is important not only temperature, but also its duration.
You will need
- Potassium nitrate (sodium), sulfur, tube, tripod, sand, potassium permanganate, aluminum, fire extinguisher.
Take unnecessary chemical tube and place in it a little potassium nitrate or sodium nitrate (saltpeter). The tube fix on tripod and heat it with a gas burner.
Wait until the nitrate melts. In melting the alkali metal nitrates decompose to form nitrites and separation of pure oxygen. When the oxygen evolution becomes stable, then remove the burner and substitute a cup of sand tube, the tube will not sustain this experience, it melted.
Then take a small piece of sulfur and ignitehim. Ignited sulfur dip into the tube filled with oxygen from the nitrate decomposition. Sulfur will burn vigorously in oxygen atmosphere, this reaction produces a very high temperature.
Take a little potassium permanganate (potassium permanganate)and mix it with the aluminum chips (you can silverfish). Then insert a mixture of magnesium ribbon and set fire to it (just move away). There will be a brief flash of a large heat release. The temperature in this reaction reaches several thousand degrees.
