Pierce and I successfully extract hydrogen and oxygen from water although, to our disappointment, we we did not manage to get enough hydrogen for a satisfying puff of flame. As usual, Pierce embellishes my instructional diagrams. The video is rather long owing the in-depth explanation of the processes taking place, the time taken to embellish diagrams, and the fact that one of our electrodes broke about half-way through the experiment which went undetected for a while.

If you want to see some highlights, load the video and then click on the timestamp to jump to that point in the video:

19:15 applying power

27:20 how salt dissolves

42:30 discovering the broken electrode

50:20 no explosion :-(

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
