About H2

Under normal conditions (at the temperature of 273.15 K and pressure of 101325 Pa) hydrogen is a flammable, colourless, tasteless and scentless gas.


It is approximately 14.5 fold lighter than air (0.0899 kg m–3) and due to its low molecular weight it is hardly coercible. In the air it creates an explosive mixture..
