  5. When a paper cup is heated with fire it burns, but when a paper cup filled with water is heated with fire it does not burn. Why?

    When the heat was only directed towards the paper cup without water, it quickly reached its melting point and burned up quickly. The paper cup with water did not burn up because it had not reached its melting point. The heat energy from the flame was transferred from the cup to the water inside the cup, so instead of the cup burning up, the water started to heat up.
