Create An Explosion

Bang! That’s the power of Chemistry. In this explosive example of water electrolysis, you’ll experience firsthand the transformation of electrical energy into chemical energy. Start the electrical current flowing in electrodes inside the clear flask of water. The electrical current splits the water molecules into two elements: hydrogen and oxygen. Once the hydrogen gas has been collected and loaded in the launch chamber, prepare to be amazed. The hydrogen gas combusts in a chemical explosion that launches a ping-pong ball up with a surprising bang!
