Explosion - A Reaction between Oxygen and Hydrogen

In this experiment you will study the kinetics of explosion reactions using a simulator.


In this experiment you will learn about the reaction between oxygen and hydrogen using a computer simulation. It is common knowledge that oxygen and hydrogen, when mixed, can be extremely volatile, but you will find out that this is not the case under all temperature and pressure conditions. In fact, the surroundings of the reaction, the presence of other gases, and changes in stoichiometric ratios can dramatically alter the behavior of this mixture from explosive to not explosive.
