Heat Wave in a Jar

Heat waves also known as loo are common in summer. Heat can be generated from the suns rays. Heat can also be generated from electricity. In this experiment we can learn how to produce heat chemically. Materials required: Thermometer Vinegar Steel wool An empty jar with a lid Procedure: Place the thermometer in the jar and close it with the lid. […]
