What is the past tense of the word "burst"?

It is just burst.
The verb burst means "the action of something breaking open from pressure inside".
- The car's tire burst yesterday.
- Unable to hold in her excitement, Lydia burst out with loud shouts.
A common mistake is to use the word "bursted" for the past tense, but this is not an actual word. So always use the word "burst" as the past tense.
