Electrolysis of an aluminum nitrate solution produces oxygen at the anode and hydrogen at the cathode.
Electrolysis of a potassium nitrate solution produces oxygen at the anode and hydrogen at the cathode.
Powdered aluminum and solid iodine are mixed and no reaction is observed. Adding water to the mixture initiates a reaction.
A piece of copper metal is heated in a flame and oxidized to black copper oxide by air. The oxidized copper is reduced when placed in a hydrogen atmosphere. When removed from the hydrogen atmosphere, the metal is again oxidized.
