burn!

Why have a burning contest In the middle of winter? When solar pyrographists  (I make up words)  will be left out. I use the sun. And it's only feasible in the summer. Just doesn't seem right.

Burning Saltwater?

I found this article in class today, and thought it was pretty interesting. a scientist discovered that by exposing saltwater to radio waves, it weakens the bonds in the water, and the hydrogen can be burnt.http://www.engadget.com/2007/09/11/can-saltwater-be-burned-as-fuel/

Burning Man Accidentally Burns Early

Burning Man update:The Man caught (or was set) on fire early this morning during the lunar eclipse. The BRC fire crew extinguished the blaze, and they're rebuilding the structure and replacing the neon now. The fireworks and fuel hadn't been added yet, so the damage wasn't total.Story, photos, and more links from Scott Beale of Laughing Squid

'abstract' wood burning.

Not sure if this should be posted here, Outdoors or Square Pegs, but it's art related so I'll ask here. I once saw a how-to video, I am 90% sure is was on this site. but there is a chance it wasn't. I would like help finding it again. From what I remember, the person showing off had: a car battery, a long needle,  plank of wood and some chemical. the process I remember was (but may not be 100% accurate): 1. (s)he painted on a layer of chemical (or acids) on the wood 2. stabbed the needle on the wood 3. connected the battery to the needle 4. turned the battery on. it then made some elegant, fancy patterns, like a bare tree, or a lightning bolt. lots of 'branches' and paths were burned into the wood (without manual intervention. it was 'natral'). like a chemical reaction. if anyone has the name of this technique, or a video/instructable/guide, I would really appreciate a link. Thank! EDIT: solution found: it's called "Fractal Woodburning" (go on youtube for some videos). I should have known, I love fractials! you need: saline wood needles and a high-voltage power source. and patience.

Shouldn't hydrogen burn ? Answered

Hello, I generated hydrogen simply by applying a DC current to 2 tubes filled with water , the ( - ) tube started bubling and filled up with a gas, i suppose that it should be hydrogen, i sucked the gas with a syringe and tried to burn this gas with a lighter by squeezing the syringe directly over the lighter's flame but the gas wouldn't burn, instead i heard micro pop's , like micro explosions.. Isn't hydrogen flamable ??

Is burning enamel safe?

I know one of the easiest ways to rid the magnet wire of its enamel is by burning it with a butane-lighter. Does this release any toxic fumes, however? I work with magnet wire a lot, and am, quite frankly, tired of stripping it with an Xacto. I'd most likely be burning it outside, so it wouldn't be that bad, I suppose.

Laser burn to the eyes

On Saturday morning my eyelids will be pulled back by retractors and held open, ethanol will be poured into my eyes, a flap of epithelial (outer layer of the eye) will be peeled back to reveal the cornea, then an Eximer laser will burn the surface of the cornea. Apparently, the burning smell can be quite unpleasant :-/ Has anyone else had laser eye surgery? Cheers, Pat. Pending

Burning barrel in the pool

Questions for you scientific types. Would this work: I have a 3,000 gallon inground pool and no heater. If I took a barrel, stuck it in the shallow end just a half inch above being totally submerged, and lit a fire inside it it would it work to heat the water around it and eventually heat up the pool?

Replacing a propane stove with a wood stove --HELP NEEDED

I need to remove a propane heating stove and install a woodstove that I already own. I'd like to install the woodstove in the same spot as where the propane stove sat and I'd llke to use the same venting pipe if possible. The problem that I see is that the propane stove uses a 4.5" vent pipe off the back of the stove and it continues to be 4.5" pipe as far up the chimney as I can see (only a foot or two) also, the propane vent pipe is thin, flexible aluminum pipe that goes up the inside of the chimney, while the woodstove connecting pipe is 6". I don't know if the woodstove can be used with 4.5" flex vent pipe from the propane stove or if it needs bigger, steel pipe for wood fires. Does anyone know? Thanks. Peter Norwell, MA

Fire wood burn time

So I'll be camping in a State Park where you must bring your own wood. Does anyone know the burn time of firewood? We're burning pine and this is something I've never had to consider, as I've normally camped where you can cut your own wood from dead/fell trees... As we have a rather intense upstream kayak journey to get to our campground, we're trying to take "just enough" but not too little :) Thanks :)
