How you can get water element?

The chemical compound Water is made of two elements: Hydrogen and Oxygen. To get water you would need to perform a highly explosive chemical reaction. An example of this dangerous reaction occured with old style zeppelins that were filled with Hydrogen. So, the chemical formula of water is H2O and the reaction between Hydrogen and Oxygen is:Hydrogen + Oxygen --> Hydrogen OxideDo not attempt this reaction.
