Christmas exhibition of the oxyhydrogen microscope.
The gas produced is highly explosive (oxyhydrogen).
The submarine followed him, and Tom waited as a small door in the side of the Sea Dart slid open, revealing an oxyhydrogen cutting torch.
While the oxyhydrogen flame is intensely hot, it is almost non-luminous.
The oxyhydrogen blowpipe, used to effect this combination, consists of a small tube placed within a larger one, as shown in Fig. 16.
It is insoluble in water and in most chemical reagents, and requires the hottest oxyhydrogen flame for fusion.
It melts in the oxyhydrogen blowpipe and in the electric furnace; it is harder than gold and is a good conductor of electricity.
This differs from the oxyhydrogen blowpipe only in the size of the tubes.
Temperatures as high as 3500° can be easily reached, whereas the hottest oxyhydrogen flame is not much above 2000°.
Heated intensely, as in the oxyhydrogen flame, it gives a brilliant light called the lime light.
