Materials

  • Sugar cube
  • Matches
  • Ashes

Instructions

  • At first, try to set the sugar cube on fire using the match.
  • You won’t be able to do it.
  • Cover some ashes on a side of the cube.
  • Now, set it again on fire.
  • See what happens.

Observation

In the second time, you would see the sugar cube catching the fire and burning.
