Good question but I learned that a spark in a container of hydrogen won't explode. I am not sure what the "flammation" issue is.

Maybe the flammable concern has to do with hydrocarbons, not pure hydrogen. Gas is a hydrocarbon fuel.

Some of the rooms in the hospitals contain pure oxygen and if you light up a match...

You'll be toasted.

That's why they have "No Smoking" signs in the hospitals, it's not just to protect the patients from the risks of smoking, but to protect them from getting fried.

a spark won't explode in a jar of hydrogen because there is no oxygen to complete the burn process (don't try this at home!!(IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) )


sherry & netrox, good question, I've been thinking about that flamability issue too. if gasoline can burn fast enough to operate an engine at 12,000 RPM (in some engines) I'd say gasoline is more explosive than hydrogen (look at the Hindenberg -- it didn't go up in one big bang). If I recall our science lab tests, hydrogen balloons burned rather than exploded.
