Pringles® Can Rocket

firewatch

Publication 91521

Price: FREE

An empty Pringles potato chip can is filled with hydrogen gas and ignited. The hydrogen burns with a yellow flame for about one minute. As the air mixes with the hydrogen the flame will become smaller and smaller. Just before the mixture explodes a slight whistling can be heard. When the mixture explodes the plastic lid on the bottom will fly off and the can will shoot about 10 feet in the air.
