What is this incredibly hot liquid called? Answered
Well me and my friend added KNO3 and sugar to a tin coffee mix container to see the reaction.
So it all went well (smoke shot all around and stuff the can turned red hot. ) but when I got to the can after I noticed it was still smoking a little I noticed that there was a tan-ish colored fluid at the bottom of the can that seemed to be the source of the smoke. Out of curiosity I dropped the dead match And I was surprised to see that it had lit on fire and completely disintegrated in less than 5 seconds. Anything I put in it (Paper cup plastic bottle) was burned and dissolved. It wasn't until I poured cold water in(after which boiled instantly) was i able to dump the liquid into the ground.
So my question is what was that stuff?
