How Hookah Works<br />Inhaling through the pipe/hose increases pressure in jar.<br />Air moves into the bowl above which the charcoal and tobacco are placed.<br />Lit charcoal heats the air.<br />Air evaporates the tobacco  smoke<br />Smoke goes through the water jar <br />Heat is lost as it makes its way to the top of the jar to which the hose is attached<br />Smoker takes in this smoke and then releases it as with a cigarette.<br />
