need to Know
I have a egg , bottle and a piece of paper and matches. When the paper is is on fire and placed in the bottle .And the egg is placed over the hole , it gets stucked in. Can someone tell me why . Is it because of the oxygen is used up , thats in the bottle ?

Well, what is the bottle made of and what kind of paper are you using? It may have something to do with that.
However, it might be that the fire is sucking in air through a current and sucks the egg with it. Or something happened to the egg to make it smaller.

I saw this same experiment in an assembaly once! You see, the constant need of oxygen for the fire cause a vaccuum... which in turn causes the egg to be sucked in. To futher explain this... do some research on vaccuums (NOT VACCUUM CLEANERS!!) I do know however that iit definately has to do with the need of oxygen creating a vaccuum.
