After building the huge signal fire on the mountain top Ralph realsies that he has no way to light it. He asks the other boys if anyone has any matches. Eventually however he uses Piggy spectacles as a burning glass, to concentrate the heat of the sun and light the fire.
Ralph thinks that the beast on top of the mountain top is preventing them from the fire
for the fans
In Chapter 2: Fire on the Mountain the 'shameful knowledge' is the realisation that after they had spent much of their energy building a huge bonfire they had no way of lighting it. Ralph initially avoided making any confession by enquiring of Jack, "Will you... Will you light the fire?" To which Jack managed a mumbled reply about rubbing sticks together and then, to quote from the book... He glanced at Ralph, who blurted out the last confession of incompetence. "Has anyone got any matches?"
As "boys with sticks."
frictional force because is rubbing together
The friction caused by rubbing the sticks together causes heat causes the fire
To start fire with sticks, the sticks need to be very dry. Fire will be started by rubbing the sticks continuously together. Fire will be produced as a result of friction.
Yes, people in prehistory invented this kind of lighting a fire. Rubbing two dry sticks together makes heat and if you are patient enough it will make fire.
to make fire. when you are out in the wilderness and don't have any matches or a lighter. you can rub two sticks together for a while and it will make a fire!
Rubbing two sticks together will generate heat to start a fire.
Kinetic energy is movement energy. So when you rub two sticks together, the rubbing is the kinetic energy. The friction that this causes releases heat. Heat is thermal energy. So due to friction you can convert kinetic energy into thermal energy by rubbing sticks together.
The option of rubbing sticks together came up, but eventually they decided to use piggy's glasses.
Fire by friction!
