Fireproof Balloons Experiment

Fire proof Balloons To raise the temperature of iron is easier than to raise the temperature of water! It takes just 1/10th time to raise the temperature of 1 gram of iron than it does to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water. Water has a unique property of being able to absorb a lot of heat compared to […]
