Caption: Potassium burning in chlorine. A piece of potassium metal is dropped into a flask containing chlorine gas. At the bottom of the flask is damp sand. This causes the potassium to ignite, burning with a reddish orange flame. The white smoke is mainly potassium chloride, with some potassium oxide from residual air in the flask.
