Alkaline Metals Explosions

This is one of my father's OLD home videos that he filmed for his chemistry class in the 1970's. He played it every year for his 9th grade class to show how all alkaline metals react explosively with water. He used sodium and potassium for his examples. It was very hard to get this old video on my computer! I had to put it in our VCR, and then play it and record it with a camera.
