I asked this before but did not get any real answers because even today this still bothers me. So why is it when i fart in a jar and seal to save, once i open it later the smell is no longer there? where does it go? I even tried it recently and as soon as i farted in the jar and put the lid back on i sealed it with ducktape. 48hours later its gone!

I don't know...
What I'm wondering is why were you farting in jars in the first place?1

PPM the part of a fart that smells is methane, and it has to be concentrated over the threshold of smell. Methane has a tendency to stick together (otherwise we would never smell them) but does disappate over time. Now let's get to your jar, when it enters the jar it is concentrated but after time it dissapates into the air in the jar, lowering its concentration under the threshold of smell.0
