In the real world, gasoline reacts chemically with oxygen at a certain temperature, creating flames (light, heat) and the gaseous products of combustion. Over time, the gasoline burns until it’s totally consumed. You can simulate this situation in Fluid Effects using Fuel, Density, and Temperature properties.

In this lesson, you create a dynamic explosion effect by filling the bottom of a container with Fuel and Density, then “igniting” it with Temperature. You learn how to:
