Physics girl attempts to find the coolest ways to put out a candle while teaching us some science.

For example:

  • What happens when you pour liquid nitrogen on a flame?
  • What about when you blow on the flame with a cup in the way?

Have you ever tried to extinguish a flame by doing any of these things?

  1. Pour out the flame with CO2.
  2. Cut off the oxygen supply to the flame without fully covering it.
  3. Snuff out the flame with a coil of copper wire, and when it appears dead, it will amazingly come back to life!
