Answer This

carbon di oxide is filled inside those cans in high pressure.....wen they r release they come at high speed and covr the fire like blanket we already knw tat 3 essential things for fire is oxygen,fuel and ignition temperatre....since the co2 covers the fire like a blanket it stops the contact of oxygen and inturn extinguishes the fire


co2 is heavier than o2.when it sparyed on the fire with help of fire extinguisher , it in fact acts like a blanket and blocks the supply of o2 . therefore , the fire is extinguished!!!
