Flammability and Flame Test
Flammability is the ability of something to be easily ignited and burned, and is a function of surface area and volatility. Materials that have a high surface area are more likely to be flammable than materials with a lower surface area. Materials that are easily transformed from liquid to gas will be more flammable than those that are less easily transformed to gas, or those materials that are solid.
All metals are shiny, and can conduct heat and electricity quite well. Many of their salts are highly colored – in fact, all of the colors of the rainbow. When metal salts are excited by heat they produce colors, often specific to a particular metal. We can use the colors to determine their outermost electron nature.
