Abstract : Experimental measurements were made of the minimum spark ignition energies for hydrogen-bromine mixtures of various compositions. The results are compared with values calculated from the equation of Lewis and von Elbe. Calculated values are much higher than experimental, and the range of difference is greater than is explainable by experimental errors. Experimental results in general, however, indicate that ignition probably involves a thermal mechanism. (Author)
