Additional Info

  • ID Code: I1-63
  • Purpose: Produce a hydrogen explosion
  • Description:
    A balloon filled with hydrogen is tethered about six feet above head level. The burning match on a stick is positioned under the balloon, creating the hydrogen explosion.
    Engagement Suggestion
    • One option for presenting this would be to compare the behaviour of two different balloons, hydrogen and helium. You can tell students what is in each balloon and have them make a prediction about what each will do, or show the demonstration first and then have students analyze why the results were different.
