Warning in aerosol products ''Do not puncture or incinerate''Why is this warning needed?
Because the aerosol can will explode if you puncture it or incinerate it.
A warning on an aerosol can states Caution container may explode if heated explain Using the particle theory of matter why such a warning is necessary?
Heat causes particles to move faster, and the faster a praticle moves, the more energetic are its collisions, thereby exerting more pressure on the walls of any container that the particles are in, and enough pressure gives an explosion. This warning is necessary on aerosol cans because garbage is often thrown into incinerators, and that is not safe in the case of aerosol cans which will explode.
