An experimental investigation of entrainment and mixing in the self-similar far field of an axisymmetric free turbulent jet in water is presented. Length and time scales for the flame length fluctuations of reacting jets are shown to be approximately equal to the local characteristic large scale length and time of the flow. It is also shown that instantaneous radial profiles of concentration across the jet do not resemble the mean concentration profile, indicating that the mean profile is a poor representation of the mixed fluid states within the jet.
