Doesn't magnesium burn hot enough to dissociate some of the hydrogen and oxygen in water into their component gases?

Magnesium and dry ice equals volcano. I can't wait until the day my son needs an idea for a science project.

Many years ago, when I was in a rented house share with another pyromaniac, we acquired a magnesium box. It was great fun breaking bits off and setting it on fire with the blow torch that was set up on the kitchen table. One night, when we got bored with the blow torch, we chucked the remains of the box (a corner) onto the open fire in the living room. Eventually it caught fire, then we decided to bung some ammonium nitrate into the corner of the burning box (we just happened to have a big bag of it in the cupboard for some reason). Nothing happened for about a second, then there was the brightest light I have ever seen that lasted for a very short time and the box was gone. It must have looked spectacular from outside, a shaft of white light heading skywards from the chimney.

Anybody else feel like the local Fire Department just has their address memorized? “Where did you see the smoke? Ah. It’s them again”

I wouldn’t be surprised if magnesium was commonly added to thermite to make lighting it easier, although from what I understand it lights pretty easily anyway

I can’t believe something didn’t catch on fire they did not want to catch on fire

Please hold a co2 fire extiguisher on a magnesium fire, I had this as a test question in school, in theory the meagnesium should split the co2 apart making the fire extiguisher a flame blower XD

At the Cabin Crazy show in York, Pa i enjoyed the chain that spun on a wheel powered by a motor. That might be cool in big scale. The cardboard dragon that followed you with its eyes escaped me. I don't know if that would translate well to video. I would also like to see a bunch of small relatively easy projects. Might keep the attention of those challenged with a short attention span.

If metal is burning is you can’t really do anything just let it burn that’s a class Delta Fire

You missed nicer experiments: 1-2 mm Mg wire burns continuously in air and under water as light source for scuba divers. As thin ribbons in the 50-60's were used as flashlights triggered by batteries before the xenon flash light was born

I think they use alloyed magnesium instead of pure magnesium because it’s stronger and lighter than the pure stuff

Just as a update for you guys from king of random. Yes magnesium is still used in aircraft to this day. Normally its in your transmissions where oil is constantly coating it.

Also if you dump enough sand on the fire it will smother the fire and deprive it of oxygen to put it out

Class D fire (aka burning jet engine): Use a tractor to push it overboard, as it aint going out any other way.

Still don't understand why he insists on using pressurized water that just spreads the magnesium across the ground.

The atomic number of magnesium is 12, and the video is exactly 12:00 minutes long

Let the burning melted globs of magnesium drip into a container of water and let's see what happens.
