    I often have the opportunity to collect hydrogen, off steel cathode. I'm using a bit of sodium carbonate as electrolyte.

    What can I do with the gas? Canned oxygen is also handy.

    Take ye Big Ole plastic bag, fill her up and close it with some 5 inch wire. Attach an M-80 (if you get your dirty hands on some of those). Light said M-80 and let it fly. Can you spell H-I-N-D-E-N-B-U-R-G ????
    The much tamer and lame-oid alternative: take an empty soda can, turn it upside down and fill with hydrogen. Poke a hole in the bottom (now your top) and light the escaping gas. After a certain while when oxygen replaces the hydrogen the can goes "POP"

    Have fun, stay safe.


    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by

    I've pointed out to 5 and 6 year-old-boys that the bubbles are hydrogen, oxygen... totally meaningless to them... so an explosion perhaps involving toy action figure sounds like an excellent start. :-D

    One little guy is what's left of my nads, so yeah I'll be careful.

    I want to make tangible water too, so the kids really get it. How to rig a nice demonstration?
