PHOSPHORUS (WHITE) BURSTS INTO FLAMES<br />
Exothermic Reaction Between Oxygen and Phosphorus<br />
Finely divided white phosphorus, deposited on a piece of filter paper by evaporation of a carbon disulfide solution of P4, bursts into flames on contact with air. The laminar flow of smoke becomes turbulent as it diffuses in the air.
