Rings of Fire!

On February 21, 2018 Frank Science was on location at TELUS World of Science - Edmonton lighting up the night with some fiery science. With his "Rings of Fire" Frank demonstrated how different compounds can create different colouring when lit on fire.

When things get hot, really, really hot, different materials give off different colours. This science is what gives off the wonderful colours when you watch firework displays. A compound such as copper will give off a green light while a compound such as lithium chloride will give off a nice yellow glow.
