I love these things.

Lot of stupid explanations for this in this thread... Yes the fire reacts with the oxygen, but no that is not why the vacuum is created. It doesn't "use up the fuel and create a vacuum". That explanation misses a crucial concept. In any chemical reaction, matter is neither created or destroyed. Its simply changes its structure. Also, CO2 is not less dense than O2. In this context, they are both in gaseous states, therefore their density is variable, depending on the amount of particles in a given space. In this case, the air rising from the candles is very hot. Hot air moves faster, and takes less particles to fill the given space (the glass bottle). When the egg makes a seal with the bottle, cutting off further O2 supply, the fire is extinguished. The source of heat is then gone, the air cools, and condenses. The change in heat is what creates the vacuum. It takes more particles of room temp air to fill that bottle than it does heated particles. . But anywho, this is probably too long and boring for anyone to care to read. Whatever.

for some reason i cant reply to the last one, but it also is science
I guess we both have run out of ******** pics/gif

gases of all densities occupy the same volume per mol you ******* wanker. don't use a science gif if you are a complete ******* .
User avatar #29 to #18 - chriseeeee (02/04/2012) [-]
It's a result of the fire requiring the oxygen in the air to burn, once it has used up all the oxygen in the sealed bottle the air pressure inside is lower than that outside, however air pressure "likes" to be as even as possible so it sucks in at the weakest point being the egg, as long as the egg isn't massivly fragile it can be sucked it without damage.
User avatar #20 to #18 - onkii (02/04/2012) [-]
there is no air pressure in the bottle, so it sucks the egg in. imagine if you were in space, and the window of your ship came off, you would be sucked out because there is no pressure outside the ship
#489 to #20 - CIS White Male (02/05/2012) [-]
Any idiot who says the "oxygen" gets "used up" is a complete moron and is just spreading ignorance. flames such as in those candles are generated through the exothermic combustion of parrafin wax. CxH2x+2 + xO2 ---> xCO2 + xH2O. There are actually more gas volumes on the right side of the equation and using Le Chatellier's Principle it is not a lack of oxygen, mereley that heated air when cooled occupies less space.
User avatar #358 to #20 - KingMan (02/05/2012) [-]
Actually if we want to be completely correct, the flame inside uses all of the fuel (Air) which creates an unbalanced force. The atmosphere outside the bottle actually pushes the egg inside. preparing for a volley of red toenail clippings from people saying "Haha this idiot doesn't know how a vacuum works" but whatever. I don't know why I remember this from school...

How does it work with the flame using all the oxygen when it appears that the matches are extinguished as soon as the hit the liquid (there is some liquid in there, right?) inside the bottle?
#356 to #251 - junter (02/05/2012) [-]
There's no liquid in the bottle. The reason the matches go out is because they've already used up all of their fuel.
User avatar #36 to #20 - smackledorf (02/05/2012) [-]
And the reason there is no air in the bottle is because when you put fire in there it consumes it all. the same trick can be done by just dropping the match in there.
