How To Make Your Own Potassium.
White Ash From Wood (Potassium Carbonate)
Two, Thick Wires (at least 5 inches)
9 volt Battery
Heat Source (Bunsen Burner works best!)
Step One: Put your white.gray ash into metal cup. Torch for about 15 seconds straight, turning the ash to a white colour.
Step Two: Turn on your Bunsen burner to full and light. Grab the metal cup and hold directly over flame with tongs.
Step Three: After the ash has become molten (may be awhile), set down. Quickly shouve two wires into the liquid. Hook the wires up to the 9vlt battery and step back. When no more silvery metal will collect around onf of the wires (or float to the top), unhook battery.
Step Four: Gather the metal and put into a small container, then cover the fillings in Kerosene. This will prevent any oxidation.
Step Five: When you want to use your potassium, take a peice out and drop into the school toilet, flush and run. AND I MEAN RUN!
I Know A Good Experiment:
mix, H2O and H2O and you get, well, just H2O. =p
