Caption

Sodium burning in chlorine. A piece of sodium metal has been dropped into a flask containing chlorine gas. At the bottom of the flask is damp sand. This causes the sodium to ignite, burning with a yellow flame. The white smoke is mainly sodium chloride (common salt), with some sodium oxide from residual air in the flask.
