How does a matchstick light up? Explain.

Asked by Topperlearning User 4th June 2014, 1:23 PM

Answer:
When we rub a matchstick against the rough surface of a matchbox, then friction between the head of matchstick and rough side of matchbox produces heat. This heat burns the chemicals present on the head of matchstick due to which the matchstick lights up.
