I am working on a Project and one of the major part of it is a GAS Detector, The GAS Detector detects the large number of flammable gases, but in order to test the Detector I am required to release certain gases in a room from the GAS cylinder with different flammable gases.
There is no such thing in a room which could cause ignition, still i wonder if the Static electricity produces in a room somehow, can it cause the fire or some harm due to this gases ??
Is there even the slightest possiblity that it could be harmful ? I just want to know if it may cause so that I could tell my Professors why I am testing the GAS sensor with the Hydrogen gas present in air.
