Use the Hydrogen, What a Bang! Chemistry Laboratory Kit to safely observe the explosive nature of H2! Students perform the classic candle test for the detection of H2 to determine whether it burns in the absence of air.
Safely observe the explosive nature of hydrogen gas! Generate microscale amounts (50-60 mL) of hydrogen gas in syringes. Perform the classic candle test for the detection of H2, ignite bubbles filled with pure hydrogen and compare to bubbles filled with mixtures of hydrogen and air, and determine whether H2 burns in the absence of air. Includes Teacher Notes, reproducible student handouts, and all necessary chemicals and specialized materials.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. The Chemistry of Gases Classroom Equipment Kit (Catalog No. AP5951) is needed to perform this lab and is available separately.
