In a forest fire, when the fire is too large or hot, they stop trying to put
water on it because it will only add fuel to the flames.
At what temperature will hydrogen and oxygen separate? Is it possible to
have high pressure water continuously hit that temperature to the point that
( as long as there's water ) it will run itself without any outside
forces? Can this be done in the lab.? If so it would mean never ending power
and the fuel would be only water.
