In this experiment you will learn about the Oxygen and Hydrogen reaction by using a computer simulation. It is common knowledge that Oxygen and Hydrogen, when mixed, create an extremely volatile mixture but you will find out that this is not the case in all temperature and pressure conditions. In fact, the surrounding of the reaction, the presence of other gases, change in stochiometric ratios can dramatically change the well known explosive behavioral of this reaction to not explosive.
