A hypothetical gas that obeys exactly all postulates of the kinetic-molecular theory.
- Chemical Safety
People use chemicals every day for a wide array of purposes, which can include work and house hold duties. Many of us fail to realize that we are actually handling potentially deadly chemicals when we simply clean the bathroom or wash the car. This brings to mind the reason why chemical safety is...
- Protein Design: Automated protein discovery and synthesis
In this paper I describe (theoretically) the method(s) of automated protein discovery and synthesis.
- Features of the Scanning Tunneling Microscope
The scanning tunneling microscope (STM) invented by Heinrich Rohrer and Gerd Binnig in the 1980s still manages to do a great job today and competes with more advanced microscope types. The scanning tunneling microscope is used for studying the surface atoms that are found on various materials. The...
- Diamonds Are Forever
Diamonds are still a girl's best friend, right? We love the shiny gems. They are the most popular rocks sold today. But what exactly are they, anyway? Where do they come from? What else are they used for?
- Harmful Chemicals Found In Food
It's getting close to New Years and many people are starting to think about how to lose those extra pounds they managed to gain over the holidays. There are many sorts of diets and fads that have developed over the years from cutting carbs to cutting protein. Everyone has their own opinion as to...
Energy that matter processes by virtue of its motion.
Chain Termination Step
The combination of two radicals, which removes the reactive species that propagate the change reaction.
Isomers that differ only in the way that atoms are oriented in space, consist of geometrical and optical isomers.
An isotope of hydrogen whose atoms are twice as massive as ordinary hydrogen,deuterion atoms contain both a proton and a neutron in the nucleus.
The material in a distillation apparatus that is to be distilled.
A change in which one or more new substances are formed.
The elements in a horizontal row of the periodic table.
Any of a subgroup of rare-earth elements, of which the cerium and terbium metals comprise the other two subgroups.
A thermodynamic state or property that measures the degree of disorder or randomness of a system.
Solubility Product Principle
The solubility product constant expression for a slightly soluble compound is the product of the concentrations of the constituent ions, each raised to the power that corresponds to the number of ions in one formula unit.
A small, calibrated electroscope worn by laboratory personnel and designated to detect and measure incident ionizing radiation or chemical exposure.
Colloidal suspension of a solid dispersed in a liquid, a semirigid solid.
An insoluble solid formed by mixing in solution the constituent ions of a slightly soluble solution.
The quantity of product formed by the interaction of two or more substances, generally expressed as a percentage of the quantity obtained to that theoretically obtainable.
A fairly strong dipole-dipole interaction (but still considerably weaker than the covalent or ionic bonds) between molecules containing hydrogen directly bonded to a small, highly electronegative atom, such as N, O, or F.
A device used for accelerating charged particles along a straight line path.
A mixture that does not have uniform composition and properties throughout.
The rates of effusion of gases are inversely proportional to the square roots of their molecular weights or densities.
An organic ion carrying a negative charge on a carbon atom.
Refers to substances that crystallize in more than one crystalline arrangement.
