|Sodium Acetate Sculptures (Hot Ice)||
This experiment demonstrates instant crystallization in a supersaturated solution of Sodium Acetate and water. A second demonstration shows how to make ice sculptures (or pillars) with Sodium Acetate.
Video showing Laminar Flow and demonstrating fluid flowing in layers. The flow is "smooth" in contrast to turbulent flow which is "chaotic" .
|Tablet added to spherical water drop in microgravity||
An experiment aboard to the International Space Station: Alka-Seltzer added to spherical water drop in microgravity.
|Protein synthesis: an epic on the cellular level||
Directed in 1971 by Robert Alan Weiss for the Department of Chemistry of Stanford University, this short film continues to be shown in biology class today.
|Non-Newtonian liquid - hole that does not disappear||2:44||1427||5.51|
Similar to the demonstration of Supercooled Water, but this time with beer.
A demonstration of supercooled water 'snap freezing'. When water is supercooled it remains liquid below it's normal freezing point. Shaking it gently can activate the freezing process.
|All the Chemistry Basics in just 3 minutes||
In this highly energized lecture, Hank attempts to summarize "half a semester" of chemistry in just 3 minutes - molecules, elements, atoms, protons, neutrons, electrons, orbitals and chemical bonds.
|Color Change Reaction - Periodic Table of Videos||
This miraculous looking 'traffic lights' experiment shows a solution changing color (blue, red, green, red, yellow). The color can then be reversed to red through the addition of oxygen, by pouring it into a another container.
