ASAP Science has prepared us a great gift for Christmas: a fireplace on YouTube. The great thing about this is that you see the process of burning, the chemical substances that are taking part in this process and the result of burning.
Wood (C6H10O5 – cellulose) burns when you add heat and Oxygen. The result: carbon dioxide, water, heat. At the end, when the wood is almost completely burned, you will see: CH4 (methane), C10H8 (naphtalene), C6H6 (benzene).
