Elemental Burning – Beauty of Science

What happens to carbon when it combusts? What does sodium look like while it burns? In Elemental Burning, creator Yan Liang’s team films the combustion of five elements: carbon, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sulfur… and then see what compounds they change into afterward.

The video is another in the Beauty of Science video series, chemistry content created for K-12 STEM education. Watch a few more on this site: Crystallization2, a 4K macro time lapse and Beautiful Chemical Reactions.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
