Chemical Reaction

By : Nicholas Pietro Fiorentino (CHEMISTRY ROCKS!)

Potassium Chlorate and Gummy Bear

C6 H12 06 + (KClO3)

In this video a gummy bear which is made of glucose is added to a tube of Potassium Chloride C6H12O6(s) + 6O2(g) (from KCLO3) -> 6CO2(g) + 6H20(g) I know a chemical reaction is happening because the colors are changing in the tube! The sold gummy bear is being melted to a liquid also!
Reaction of Sodium & Chlorine (with subtitles)

Na + Cl

In this video, Chlorine and Sodium are put together in a flask and the chemical reaction results in a small explosion almost like a flare. Na + Cl --> NaCl I know a chemical reaction is happening in this experiment because the powder and the solid form of chlorine are turned to gas, and the explosion also occurs!
Huge Chunk of Sodium in Pond

Na + H20

A chunk of Sodium is thrown into H20. This creates a chemical reaction resulting in an explosion. 2Na(s) + 2H2O → 2NaOH(aq) + H2(g) I know a chemical reaction is happening hear because the sodium and the water combine to form an explosion! This explosion sends off a charge throughout the pond! It's so cool! I love science!
