Waiter and water onto plate

A man in a restaurant asked a waiter for a juice glass, a dinner plate, water, a match, and a lemon wedge. The man poured enough water onto the plate to cover it.
"If you can get the water on the plate into this glass without touching or moving this plate, I will give you $100," the man said. "You can use the match and lemon to do this."
A few minutes later, the waiter walked away with $100 in his pocket. How did the waiter get the water into the glass?


  1. Something to do with burn causing loss of air and suctioning?

  2. Stick the match in the lemon wedge so it is standing upright. Float this ontop of the water. Light the match and place the glass upturned over the lit match. As the match burns up the oxygen under the glass a vacum will be formed causing the water to rise up into the glass.

  3. @devendraiiit yes correct explanation...:)
