The Backyard Scientist is at it again: This time, he decides to create colored flames using different household chemicals and DIY pieces of equipment. Then, of course, he shoots the fire in the air via a homemade flamethrower.
The variety of hues is due to different metals and chemicals, which can cause fire to burn in different colors. For example, table salt will cause a flame to burn yellow.
He even throws in instructions on how to make your own mini flamethrower – although this sounds AWESOME, and it's entirely possible to recreate this experiement at home, it is not recommended you do so.
