Substances in different phases of matter, namely, solid, liquid, and gas, have the property to dissolve in a liquid solvent to form a homogeneous solution (Henrickson, 2005). This property is called solubility. The extent to which the mass of a substance dissolves in the solvent...
Factors that affect solubility
By: Allan Taylor
The concept of solubility is of major importance in chemistry. Solubility is when a solid, liquid or gaseous substance (solute) dissolves in a liquid (solvent) to form a homogeneous solution. . The extent of the solubility of a substance in a solvent is measured as the...

Before one can talk about the factors that affect the solubility, one needs to to know what exactly "solubility" means. In several entries (Wikipedia, SolubilityofThings.com, About.com), solubility is defined as the following: the ability of a substance to dissolve. In the Wikipedia entry...

The property of solubility is generally thought of as the condition of molecular miscibility involving matter in liquid form. However, homogeneous solutions of solids and gasses also exhibit this property. For solubility to take place, a solute (solid liquid or gaseous element or compound) must...
Factors that affect reaction time
By: Debbie Kendle Lawson
Everything can and does affect our reaction time, one way or the other. Our reaction time can be quickened; or it can be slowed down. These are factors that can quicken our reaction time. Hyperthyroidism is one such disease. It can quicken your reaction time...

Three dimensional printing was developed years ago and has been in use for a time. There have been such advancements that a three dimensional object, based on CAD drawings and other digital content, can be produced in a few hours and for as low as...
Thoughts on the oscillator/substance model
By: R K vanderHoek
"Nothing is too wonderful to be true if it be consistent with the laws of nature" -Michael Faraday (1791 -1867) The Basics Concepts; A simple oscillator is something that changes or flips back and forth, and or, on and off repetitively, from one state of...

It is true that there has been a dearth of exciting chemistry books for children in recent years. The latest chemistry book, published in 2010, and presented with a fun and educational angle, is the one by authors Simon Basher and Dan Green. It is...
What is the God Particle and why is it controversial?
By: Lane Weinberg
When the big bang occurred there was allegedly an equal amount of matter and antimatter. As you may know, when matter and antimatter come in contact they consume and destroy each other. This being true, how could life or the universe for that matter exist...
Conformal cyclic cosmology: What happened before the Big Bang
By: Lane Weinberg
Mythology sometimes mingles with reality such as the Sumerian belief in the formation of Earth’s moon, which resulted from large-scale planetary combat via orbital paths. That in itself is another story. This particular article focuses more on the mythology of the Phoenix, a legendary...
