"My Two Cents" I'd like to speak of the thing that has'nt been talked about in this topic.It is apparent to me that just as everything in nature has its own resonant frequency so does salt water. When it is exposed to a large...

Electroplating is the precipitation or coating of one metal on another by applying electricity in order to secure an improved appearance and resistance to corrosion and/or prevent rusting; this is usually carried out under an appropriate and suitable condition.Materials needed in electroplating are electrolyte...

Chemical weapons fall into four general categories: choking agents, blistering agents, blood agents, and organophosphate nerve agents.Choking agents, which were extensively employed during World War I, are gasses like chlorine and phosgene. In today's world, these agents really are no alternative to the nerve...

The Standard Model is the term given to our representation of the structure of the atom. We understand that the atom is comprised of a nucleus composed of finer particles called neutrons and protons which have a neutral and positive charge respectively and that even...

Ever since I was a kid, which I still am, whenever I got sick, my mom would always give me either Pepto-Bismol of a mixture of baking soda and warm water. Until a few months ago I never thought much of it, but when this...

If you have had the opportunity to study chemistry at all, chances are that you've met the Periodic Table of the Elements. No, it doesn't have to be capitalized, but it sure looks impressive that way, and well it should. This is a powerful reference...

The story of the atom begins over two thousand years ago in ancient Greece, when the philosopher Democritus first postulated that matter is made up of fundamental building blocks that cannot be split apart. He called these blocks "atoms", which in ancient Greek meant "indivisible"...

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is made up of nucleotides (phosphate esters of nucleosides), consisting of a 5-carbon sugar, attached to a phosphate at the 5' carbon, and a base at the 1' carbon. The bases include the pyrimidines cytosine, and thymine, and the purines guanine, and...

Organic chemistry is often thought of as the chemistry of life. In fact, this is a commonly held misconception. Organic chemistry simply means the chemistry of carbon containing compounds, regardless of the origin of those compounds. Whether or not a carbon containing compound comes from...

The chemical properties of noble gases are not terribly interesting. That's because noble gases have what is called a filled valence shell. The science of quantum mechanics explains how electrons build up in different energy levels. These energy levels are more stable when filled than...
