PERIODIC TABLE 1


Question :

What has CHEMISTRY got to do with how things are made?

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

2


Answer : EVERYTHING. Chemistry tells you about how things of the world behave, interact and are affected by one another. For example, what happens when you mix 2 white powder + a rock + a fruit?

=

melted

aluminium oxide

sodium carbonate

dolomite

lime

Well... you can’t mix just any white powder, rock or fruit to get glass.You need to find very specific things called elements. Many of these elements are hidden inside the earth, or discovered by accident by scientists in experiments. Wednesday, June 26, 2013

SEE FOR YOURSELF Ms Nana’s Recommendations for Relevant, Interesting Science

http://www.periodicvideos.com They really bring the periodic table to life in this site. You can click on ANY element and watch a video on how that element works. From the University of Nottingham. Ps. Check out one of the dude’s Einstein hair. Wednesday, June 26, 2013
