    You can use water to put out metal fires. Lots of water and a few precautions. However, burying it with sand to contain the heat is your best option. Again, take precautions. This stuff will instantly cause 3rd degree burns and produces toxic fumes.

    It's highly inadvisable to look directly at burning magnesium without proper eye protection. The magnesium flame emits significant amounts of ultraviolet light.

    My Chemistry Teacher onetime lit a small rod of magnesium on fire and dropped it in a giant glass beaker and it still burned and boiled the water away. He actually had to keep the magnesium off the bottom of the beaker or it would melt through it .

  • dhy5342


    Il y a 7 jours

    You can't put it out with water because magnesium burns at 4000 degrees F, which is hot enough to braks the hydrogen/oxygen bonds in water, providing more fuel (hydrogen) and oxidizer (oxygen) to continue the combustion.

    In school we were doing experiments with powdered magnesium lighting it in the bunsen burner. One kid managed to drop burning magnesium into the jar of powder setting it all alight. The teacher grabbed it with tongs and submerged in it a basin of water which just pissed it off. He ended up taking it out to the long jump sand pit. It eventually burned itself out. He said that the Magnesium was burning so hot that it drew oxygen from the water. Was quite the lesson.

    Get a stick welder and attach the clamp to a rod and strike an arc with it.. In other words use it like a welding rod. Or attach both clamps to two rods that you strike an arc between.This would be high heat in a very concentrated spot and might help the rods burn from one end to the other.

    My mum worked with a science teacher who used to smoke between classes. He put a roll of Magnesium ribbon in his lab coat pocket after an experiment and forgot about it. In a science staff meeting, he was still wearing this lab coat, and he put his still smouldering cigarette in his pocket... the same pocket as the Magnesium ribbon... My mum says she has never seen someone take off a lab coat so fast. The science teacher was fine, but the lab coat...
