is that a picture of a francium reaction? i cant seem to find a video on youtube.

It's not. Probably Cesium again.

Francium is highly radioactive so it throws off a lot of heat, so much so infact that IF we could even find a way to get enough francium in one place to form a piece large enough to see, it would immediately vaporize from its own heat.

Francium is so reactive, it would react with the moisture in the air. Aside from that, it is also very hard to find. Experienced researchers believe that there are hardly 30 grams of francium found on the surface of the earth.

If we can create human life, I'm pretty sure science can crate more of an element, if they tried. Jus saiyan

...we CAN create more of an element. It's called nuclear fusion. It's what happens inside stars. The problem is that it takes a LOT of energy, and subsequently a LOT of money.

we can't really "create" human life besides through reproduction.
we can influence it though.

I always wanted to know... What would happen if Francium were to react with Flourine?

They wouldn't react.
Francium has actually never been observed. It just falls apart too fast (the most stable isotope has a half-life of 22 minutes). Any usable quantity of Francium vaporizes almost instantly through beta decay which would take precedence over reaction with Fluorine.

What if you could get enough of it in one place?
Or, if not Francium, then Caesium and Flourine?

Not as big a bang as you'd think, but it does depend on the concentrations. If you were to get a disk of Caesium (which is harder to do than you think) so that a lot of it's surface is exposed to Fluorine at once, you'd get a very impressive explosion. Otherwise, it would be a very violent but not explosive reaction. It would cause the vessel to jump around a lot and probably crack.

If you could get enough Francium in one place (and as wheresthefudge pointed out, that's just theoretical,) presumably you would get an exponentially bigger bang.

Well then get some fluorine alone and just find a match. Fluorine goddamn loves to explode.

Nope. Cesium would explode due to contact with the water vapor in the air. That is sodium or lithium. Maybe potassium. Francium and cesium have to be contained in oil otherwise they react with simple air.

No it's Cesium.

In my Chem. class this afternoon. THIS ******* AFTERNOON we saw this identical clip. English announcer said it was Cesium.

Cesium only exists in a few hundredths of a gram at any one point on Earth. Most of it is synthetically made in labs. The reaction as you move down the Alkali metals increases by a factor of ten for each one. Since cesium is at the bottom, it's reactive potential is far greater than what is shown. The table would have been shattered.

Maybe it's still covered in oil from containment? Cesium only takes a little water to explode and mineral oil doesn't just uncoat everything pulled out of it

I looked for Francium in water, but I can't find it, probably because it would kill some people in the surrounding area if they were too close.

I looked through all 1A metals, and the last one I could find is Cesium, which is right before Francium in the 1A group.

I think it has more to do with the fact that it's virtually impossible to find pure francium in any quantity.

And the people who do have it are unwilling to use what little they must have to demonstrate and essentially useless demonstration. If I had some of the only available Francium, I certainly wouldn't waste it on this. Someone should make a simulation of what it should look like.

It's not necessarily that Francium is rare, it's more that it doesn't exist for any appreciable timeline (falls apart from beta decay)
Fun fact; nobody knows what color francium is because they've never gotten enough of it together to look at.
