I found a method of producing hydrogen gas that I had never heard before.
Can anyone give me the rest of this chemical equation:
NaOH + Al ---> H2 + ?
It may even be a two step equation. The Aluminum is added to the Sodium
Hydroxide solution and a lighter-than-air, flammable gas is formed which
is assumed to be hydrogen.
