Aluminium powder burns like crazy

Brady Haran invites us to see how Aluminium powder burns in the air like any other thing. Not many know that even iron burns like this. The secret: expose enough of the metal’s volume to fire and it will burn. This is why you need to have a big surface/volume ratio so that the metals can burn.

Have fun burning metals 😀
