The sodium wouldn't react with the water because it's chemically bonded to the chlorine. Even heating it to molten won't demolecularise the salt.

It's not a molecular compound though, but an ionic one... What happens to the ionic bonds when you melt an ionic compound? I assume they must be broken for the lattice structure to give out.

Yeah, salts are ionically bonded compounds subject to dissociation in solution/water.

Yes, salt is ionic, but it doesn't have the reaction you get with water and pure sodium. Sodium ions in solution with complimentary chlorine ions don't react that way just because you apply heat before you dissolve them.

To be fair, I know little more than high school level chemistry.

Yeah, I doubt that's enough heat to make a difference. 

The difference is that sodium reacts out like:

Na + H2O -> Na+ + OH- + H2

Whereas the sodium in sodium chloride is already an Na+ so the water molecules just get in there and separate the two and they all benignly float around.

it would be awesome if they made a bag big enough to life the cow off the ground.

Huh, [H2]-infused water.  I'll have to see if there's any good studies on this later.

It's just thermal.

What's causing the delay there? It sits in the water for about a second, with nothing happening, and suddenly WHOOMPH!

that's 5000 frames per second. "Time is an illusion. Lunch time doubly so."
