4.13.12

During today’s meeting, Marcus exploded an egg. First, he combined zinc and hydrochloric acid, which react in a single-replacement reaction to form hydrogen gas. He channeled this hydrogen gas into a previously hollowed egg. When he struck a match near the egg, said gas (which is extremely flammable) immediately caught fire and the egg exploded!

Have a great spring break everyone!
