the experiment was using a metalspoon and fork linked together at the tongs, and a wooden toothpick slipped in at the centre of the linked utensils. The utensils were balanced on the toothpick. The the toothpick was then balanced on the edge of a glass, approx 1" of the toothpick was laying over the inside of the glass. The toothpick was lit on fire, the fire then extinguished at the edge of the glass and the utensils remained balanced on a very small piece of toothpick as if glued there. I thought this was pretty cool but need to explain it for my science experiment comming up soon. Thanks
Re: I need an explanation for an experiment I saw invol balance and gravity.
