A torch works by using a simple series circuit. The torch comprises a source of electricity (a battery), a switch, a lamp and conducting material (the body of the torch) to form the series circuit. One terminal of the battery makes contact with the terminal on the base of the lamp. The other terminal of the battery makes contact with the conducting metal body of the torch. The metal body of the torch is connected via a switch to the cap of the lamp. When you close the switch the circuit is completed. The bulb then lights up. When you turn off the torch, the switch opens and therefore the bulb goes out.

A torch works using the concept of combustion. There are two main parts

of a torch: The top, where the fuel is, and the bottom, the part that

is held in the hand or inserted into an artificial torch bearer. When

the fuel reaches a high enough temperature, combustion begins. This is

when oxygen from the surrounding air starts to combine with the fuel on

the torch, releasing energy in the form of light and heat. Many modern

torches use a hydrocarbon as fuel, such as lighter fluid, while older,

more primitive torches simply use natural sources of carbon, such as

wood. Torches also have symbolic meanings, such as hope and

enlightenment, but torches also symbolize death if shown pointing

downward.

The best way to answer your question is to take a torch to bits and try

to follow the path of the current through the lamp. Ask your physics

teacher if it is possible to carry out this investigation. Your teacher

may have a torch in the laboratory that is used for this purpose. A

practical investigation using a real torch is the best way of achieving

a good understanding of how the torch works.
Draw a simple series circuit comprising a lamp, a switch and a battery.

That is the theoretical, paper-and-pencil part of the exercise. Now

examine the different parts of the torch and see how that theoretical

circuit is actually made in practice. Look carefully at the design of

the lamp. Ask yourself questions. Which part of the lamp is a

conductor? Which part is an insulator? How does the switch work? How is

the battery able to make contact with the lamp and the body of the

torch?
There is a lot of clever technology in a torch. I hope you get the

chance to appreciate the technology by taking a torch to bits and

putting it together again.

Because the circuits bring electricity through the wires and.....

FLASH! It works (only when you flick the switch)

Thank you for this explanation. To be honest, I needed to check several reviews to find the best butane torch because I had no idea how it should work properly. It may seem strange but this a real situation. Moreover, I am sure that average people don't care about this tool.

The torch's battery codemms with the cell and they mix and then the condeming stops and they react with the battery which makes the torch shine and when this is done.. There is a little motor that runs to the level the torch wants to be shone which is litterally powering tthe shineneess along and this is making it work

It works because you switched the switch on and thew batteries have not run out yet
