    Oh, are you waging you're finger at me? And if you are, it's Erin, by the way.

    If you live on a high mountain then try to isolate the paper bag with a micro-crystalline wax. When it is watertight try to make it hot in a microwave. Tell me what went wrong.

    Paper burns at 451 degrees Fahrenheit
    Water boils at 212 degrees

    As long as it has water in it, the paper cannot burn

    Well sure, you put water in a metal container, then put a paper bag in the water, and then boil, the water inside and outside the paper bag will boil.

    Silly Americans ... :04::04::04:
    Level of Education = CNN + Hollywood
    ================================================== ====
    1. The boiling point of water = 100 degrees Celsius
    2. Ignition temperature of paper = 220-440, depending on the type of paper
    3. The flame temperature of a fire composed of spruce trees depends on the type of fire burning:
    - Normal combustion = 650
    - Smoldering burning = 440
    - Slow burning = 440-650
    - Pyrolysis burning = 850 and above ...
    ================================================== =
    When you build a fire, it burns with the usual burning. = 650
    To boil water in a paper bag, you must arrange a paper bag WITH WATER !!! at such a distance from the fire that the temperature of the flame is not more than 220.
    (Water has a huge heat capacity, so it cools the paper bag)

    This distance is determined in this way:
    Put a paper bag of water near the fire ...
    If soot is formed on the surface of the bag, it means that it is too close.
    A bag of water will never catch fire

    That's all!

    Physics? Isn't that a fancy word for Enema?
