EVEN BLOCK PERIOD: finishing bonding notes and pH lab. Getting notebook organized for turn in
Today I set off the school fire alarm. But I did learn two things about showing a Sodium metal in water demo.
1) Clean the tarnish off all sides of the sodium metal.
2) Either do the demo outside or in a flame hood.
For an excellent Youtube video about this try this. It's a bit doctored but makes a fun show. Braincell Alkali
I hope this helps.
Love to Teach, and Teach with Passion!
