Exhibition Chemistry: Flame colours in burning hydrogen

Description

This demonstration is based on an idea of Georgina Batting, head of science at Blundell's School. Igniting balloons filled with hydrogen gas is an exciting, well-known and much loved demonstration. But, by adding some metal salts to the balloons, it becomes a demonstration of flame colours.
