You may have stumbled upon this instructable and thought, "How does that work? Fire and water? Is that possible?" In short, yes (due to a little bit of chemical illusion). This instructable will show you how. But first, you may want to watch this video:

Step 1: First, you need to get the STUFF!

Picture of First, you need to get the STUFF!
Firstly, you need to get the materials that you need to do the expirement. Starting with Potassium or Sodium. You can buy both of these, but you can also make Potassium. You can learn how to do that here. Secondly, you will need diethyl (ethyl) ether. You will need to buy that but it is worth it. You also need water which is easily attainable, and Sodium if you want to compare results.
  • Potassium
  • Diethyl Ether
  • Water
  • Beaker
  • Sodium (optional)
