Baryon (4/13)



  1. Hello! We have created a science forum. Researchers, professors, post graduate students and undergraduate students are invited to join/register our forum.


    This is the link to my forum. It is still under construction and will be fully active from 1is august. Last date of registration is 15th august, so please join it as soon as possible. It will be a great pleasure for me, if you join it.

  2. Im in my first year in university i have to write a report 10 page report on "methods and technologies used for geochemical exploration using stream sediment and soil sample" call me retarded but i dont exactly know what the question is asking or how to answer it am i suppose to basically display and write about methods on how we explore/study sediments from stream lines, such as lakes running off mountains and such and how their are different methods for different depths of the water bed to find different sediments? i guess the soil sample is also refering to how we do a chemical anaylsis of the soil, what we find at differnt depths, how we identify it am i on the right track? any help is appreciated thankyou
  3. i nevr could of made nitrocellulose (cellulose hexanitate) from cellulose and kno3(pure white)/90%+ h2so4 i tried to many many many times but my result was something that didnt even burn. my resulting cutton looks nothing like that in those 2 websites
  4. i heard car batteries have Leadoxide electrode (good for chlorate making)... i found a car battery, how would i harvest the electrode from it (probably including the sulfuric acid)
  5. clear and simple, distill.. the gas given off is run thro a tube and then HNO3 gas turns to liquid and drips down
  6. hold on, how can CaCO3 / Al work? how will that oxidize the Al to get a reaction happening
  7. I think cobalt nitrate is made like every other nitrate, mix nitric acid with the elemental metal or carbonate, hydroxide, oxide compounds. i think razor blade is made from cobalt, drop it in to nitric acid see what happens (cobalt salts r carcinogen)
  8. i heard keeping chlorate at melting point for a while turns it to perchlorate. is this true? also i bought a multimeter and i wanted to measure how much A(current) is going thro the electrodes, how would i do this? (im no good with multimeter)
  9. anyway, i was experimenting with some kclo3 i made, these ones seems very pure since it burns so much faster http://media.putfile.com/ChlorateCharcoal
  10. so would it actually be possible do light a light globe attached to the body? lol
  11. hmm ok, how were you to purify it?, the barium chlorate and chloride basicly have the same solublity
  12. what you need is 13-0-46 fertilizer which is KNO3, seeing you probably live in USA, you can probably buy a 25kg bag from any plant store lol. 29-3-4, its nitrogen, phosporus, potassium, you can not use it
  13. @woelen, if using Barium Chloride instead of Sodium chloride, would the time taken to convert 100g of barium chloride be the same as converting 100grams of sodium chloride in the method you described couple of pages back
