We at the Science Center do a live science demonstration in which we perform the famous burning dollar bill trick. In our description of how the trick works, we explain that paper must be at 451 degrees F to burn, and the burning alcohol burns at "about 300 degrees F." Now, being the curious type, I was wondering what the exact temperature the alcohol is burning at. To be even more specific, what is the temperature of the alcohol flame? Also, I am curious exactly how much liquid nitrogen expands from a liquid to a gas in volume in 1 atm of pressure. I use the figure 729 times, though I can't remember my source. Many thanks in advance, Steve
