Combustion and Currency

Posted on

Members of the Science Club dipped bills of money in an alcohol/water solution and lit them. The alcohol burns off of the surface of the bill without burning the money. The experiment illustrates the process of combustion, the flammability of alcohol, and the special qualities of the material used to make currency.
