Does anyone know of a list I can check to see what salts burn diffrent colors???
when you mean salts, you mean ions yes?
In general, i find the ones you need to know are:
Im not sure if you asked this, but if it is, i hope it helps.
Bladibla has listed the common ones.
Im not really sure wha tI mean... I was told that if you put diffrent kinds of salt in a fire they would burn diffrent colors... I was thinking of making some cool fire effects in a camp fire. ISo I need to know what burns what color
what about cations?
Salts are made up of a metal and the other bit. For example table salt is Sodium Chloride.
Sodium is a metal, it's only the metal that effects the color, giving the colors in the list above.
Also note that in most cases these salts don't burn - they just give color to flame.
Separate names with a comma.
