What is the formula for the oxyhydrogen gas sample?

Question by Guest | 2018-02-24 at 22:54

We should think as a homework about how the formula for the explosive oxyhydrogen gas experiment (oxyhydrogen test) could look like.

I know that during the oxyhydrogen test water is produced and the chemical formula for water is H2O, but I don't know more. Can someone help? My transfer is in danger.

At the oxyhydrogen gas sample, a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen is ignited. For this purpose, the hydrogen is filled from the gas cylinder into a balloon or another vessel where it automatically mixes up with the oxygen in the air.

When inflamed, there is an intensive explosive reaction in which water is produced.

The chemical formula is as follows:

\[\mathrm{ 2 H_2 + O_2 \rightarrow 2 H_2 O }\]

It can be seen that two hydrogen atoms each connect to an oxygen atom. The proof for hydrogen is provided.
