Fun and games with thermite
Thermite is a finely-powdered mixture of iron oxide and aluminum. Once it starts burning, it will burn through just about anything. Suppose you were a British chemist, had a large bucket of thermite, a French car, and a wicked sense of humor? You’d make this video: Thermite Experiments.
There are two experiments – the first is with thermite and liquid nitrogen (“a clear victory for thermite”) and the second is with the car.
