Exploding Eggs - Burning Hydrogen

Thu, 27th Aug 2009

What you Need

When hydrogen reacts with oxygen (burns) it releases a huge amount of energy as it forms water (H2O) 

2 H2 + O2 -> 2 H2O + lots of energy

This can be seen in a couple of rather gratuitous explosions that Dr Hal did when he came to visit.
