Burning a water balloon

  1. Nov 26, 2015 #1
    I wanna ask :
    The reason for water balloons to not pop while you're burning it is because of both Heat Capacity and Conductivity right ? But is it related to the density also ? Coz if the density is high, the molecules of the water will transfer the heat quicker.
    Hope i can get my answer :) Thanks !

    Both specific heat capacity and conductivity depend on density. So you already took it into account.
