How To: Understand polyatomic chemical formulas

This is a video tutorial in the Education category where you are going to learn how to understand polyatomic chemical formulas. When writing the formula using polyatomics, the same cross-over rule applies. 1st identify the metal and non-metal. Then you write the symbols, write the charges, cross-over the charges from top to bottom, remove the charge and simplify the numbers and remove the 1s. for example, iron (II) phospahate. The "ate" ending implies that phosphate is polyatomic. The symbol ...

The answer to your coffee or tea stain problems is Cafiza: an awesome espresso machine cleaning product that is popular amongst professional baristas... but also doubles as an extremely effective ceramic ...

How To: Calculate and understand the concept of molar mass

Two college students; Kevin Martin and Joey Smokey introduce the concept of Molar Mass. They start of by explaining what molar mass is, which is the relationship of a mole and a gram, it totals up the weight(in g)of a molecule. An example: say you have this compound, Sodium phosphate (Na3PO4). You know you have three sodium atoms, one phosphorus atom, and four oxygen atoms. You basically find the weight of each atom, if you have three sodium atoms, you multiply it's atomic mass by 3 (the numb...

How To: Control snails & aphids

In this video, Extension Horticulturalist Curtis Smith talks with Master Gardener Marsha groves about controlling harmful pests that are damaging to plants throughout the year in both outdoor garden and greenhouse environments. The first part of the video covers the issue of plant eating snails, and how they might best be dealt with. Smith explains that there are a number of non-toxic methods which one can use to rid a plant of snails. The process of introducing predatory creatures such as tu...

How To: Light an energy saving bulb without plugging it

This video shows the viewer how to light an energy saving light bulb without plugging it in. The process is also explained in detail during the video. To light the bulb you need to inflate a standard balloon. Then rub the balloon over either a fabric or your hair. Then move the balloon back and forth near the light bulb. The bulb should glow dimly. This effect occurs because the balloon is negatively charged. This means that it has more electrons than protons. The video then goes on to explai...

Understanding the chemistry going on behind the scenes is one of the best ways to improve the quality of your food—it's much easier to fix a problem when you know what's causing it.

News: Laser Blasts 2 Megajoule Beam 1,000 Times Stronger Than All U.S. Power Plants Combined

You might already know a little bit about what the National Ignition Facility has been up to lately, or what they could possibly achieve. But last week, even the scientists at the Livermore, California station couldn't predict the awesome power that their humongous laser was capable of. NIF's laser is already the record holder for the world's largest laser, and now it can also claim to be the first ever 2 megajoule ultraviolet laser after it generated nearly 100 times more energy than any oth...
