States of Matter - Science Theater 30

Sure, gas-liquid-solid... you've seen it all before, but have you seen air as a gas, air as a liquid, and air as a solid? Dr. Carlson explains the three most...
Hanna Swanson's insight:

In this video it shows how a solid becomes a liquid and how a liquid becomes a gas. To make it simpler a solid becomes a liquid at what is called that elements melting point. Melting accrues when heat makes the atoms or particles get hotter and move around more. Having the atoms move faster means that the atoms will be further apart. At an elements boiling point it heats up even more. Therefore the atoms move faster and further apart. How a liquid changes into a solid is the exact opposite. The atoms get cooled down. This makes the atoms move slower and closer together. When there is a solid the atoms don’t move they vibrate! This is how elements change into a different state of matter.

Boyle's Law: It's The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Boyle's Law is a special case of the ideal gas law, which shows that pressure and volume are inversely related. If one goes up, the other goes down, and vice...
Hanna Swanson's insight:

With Halloween in mind I found this video of the expansion and deflation of marshmallows. This works because air weighs about as much as a bollingball. So when you take a vacuum chamber and suck out all the air that weight has been removed and all the air that keeps the marshmallows squishy gets removed as well. Then the marshmallows expand to a bigger mass, although their weight doesn’t change.  Also when you put the air back into to vacuum chamber the marshmallows very quickly shrink back to the normal mass, but the marshmallows don’t go back to the normal place they were before.  This results in the deformity of poor Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

The Phase Changes of Water Song- New upload - Mr. Edmonds

This song is to the tune of "Hey, Soul Sister" as sung by TRAIN (composed by Pat Monahan and Amund Bjorklund) . In the song I go through the 3 phase changes ...
Hanna Swanson's insight:

       Mr. Edmonds is a science teacher that makes songs about what his students are learning. He has made many songs, sometimes educational parodies of top hit songs, the songs are catchy and get stuck in your head. This song in particular happens to be about how water changes into a solid, a gas, and back into a liquid. In my science class we learned this about two weeks ago. Although this song still sticks out to me as one of his most educational songs. After we studied it I got more into what he was talking about and listened to it again, and again, and again. Mr. Edmonds is a good singer and his songs are very catchy, maybe you should listen to some of his songs, you might learn things you didn’t know about. I know I did!

Plasma, an antibiotic alternative?

Plasma is the fourth state of matter (following on from solids, liquids and gases).

Via Damien Roth
Hanna Swanson's insight:

Plasma is the fourth state of matter. Ionization is the process in which gas forms ions and becomes plasma. Plasmas are being tested to see if they can be used them for things such as, chronic wounds and for root canal disinfection. Scientists have discovered that atmospheric-pressure plasmas get rid of bacterial cells, which can help heal illnesses. Plasmas can also be used to disinfect chemicals. So far plasmas have been used for large scale sterilization. Although scientists now think that plasmas can be used for specific applications. One of the problems scientists do not know which component, from the plasma, helps with the disinfecting.

States of Matter with Mario

Mario teaches the states of matter in a video game style
Hanna Swanson's insight:

To sum this video up, if you need some explaining further into the subject this insight will help. This video talks about liquids, solids, and gases. All of the states of matter are made up of millions and millions of microscopic things called atoms. Atoms form everything we know about and everything we don’t know about, atoms create life as we know it. Anyway let’s go back into the subject of states of matter, the states of matter are three things, liquid, solids, and gases. In a liquid atoms have some room to bounce around in, and the atom particles move fast. In a solid the atoms vibrate. In a gas the atoms can go where ever they want. Also however fast they want too.

Soda Can Crusher - Cool Science Experiment

There are lots of different ways to crush a soda can... with your foot, in your hands, on your head. But nothing compares to the fun you'll have doing the so...
Hanna Swanson's insight:

This can crush experiment is about how a gas quickly turns into a liquid by cooling down causes the can to implode. The process you go through is you take a tin can, it has to be tin otherwise it won’t work, and fill it about an inch with water. Place the tin can on a stove top or heating plate. Then wait for the can has steam rapidly escaping from the can opening. Have a bucket full of ice cold water. Once you have steam coming out of the can quickly, with heat resistant gloves or beaker tongs, grab the can and move the opening down into the bucket of ice cold water. The can should compress with a loud noise. Finally just pull the can out of the water, if you dropped it, and look at the results. Isn’t it amazing how a tin can can implode in to such a small form with just heat, water, and science!

Meet 115, the Newest Element on the Periodic Table

Meet 115, the Newest Element on the Periodic Table | States of Matter | Scoop.it
The extremely heavy element was just confirmed by scientists in Sweden
Hanna Swanson's insight:

Scientists recently discovered a new element! They are calling it ununpentium, based on the Latin and Greek words for 115 the new elements atomic number. An elements atomic number is the number of protons the element has in its nucleus. The new element was first made by a Russian scientist in Dubna ten years ago. This week, chemists at Lund University in Sweden that had replicated the Russian study at the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research in Germany. Element 115 will become a part of the periodic table right next to 114 and 116  just as soon as scientists from the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry decides on an official name for the element 115.
