  • Hello everyone today

  • We'll find out what happens when you combine two active alkali metals, for this

  • I took a piece of sodium and potassium and began to rub them against each other

  • within the evaporating dish to provide the alloy from oxidation by being exposed to Air [I've]

  • Decided to conduct the melting [of] sodium and potassium

  • under a layer of

  • Kerosene since potassium is a very soft metal it immediately deforms and wrinkles over.

  • Overtime, a liquid array of sodium and potassium is formed as a point of contact of the two metals

  • Which is instantly being covered by Gray oxide [film] this [alloy] remains in liquid state from minus 20 [to] plus

  • 785 degrees Celsius, it's a very dangerous alloy because it's more active than sodium or potassium in the round

  • I Fill in the syringe with a little bit of alloy alloy has a glassy surface inside the syringe such as mercury. Now

  • I'm dripping stored in potassium all into the water

  • As can be seen, [color] instantly ignite in water forming burning droplets.

  • If you drop this alloy on the wet surface the alloy will also light up, sometimes with an explosion

  • Its then I pour in the remaining alloy into the water

  • Sodium potassium alloy is used in Nuclear reactors as coolant as

  • Well in metallurgy subscribe to my channel to see many more new and interesting

  • experiments

  • Pull that trigger right from your face

  • Wow, he'll be all right
