Aerosol Spray Cans

Aerosol cans have flammability warnings, because they use propane and/or butane to propel the contents out of the can. The temperature of the room has to be high enough, or the alkanes will not vaporize!

Try heating or cooling the room, and predicting whether the aerosol can will spray!

Heat the Room!

Cool the Room!
