  1. 1. in AC corona discharge tubes (such as in ozone generator tubes), are all the molecules positively ionized? (out of the ones that are ionised of course, i know some aren't) or some negative and some positive? 2. if nitrogen is used in such a tube, will the ions only be N2+/-1 or will some be +/-2 etc? will any of them completely split into atomic nitrogen? 3. if nitrogen is used in such a tube, will the nitrogen ions stay in an ionised state and come out the other end still ionised or will they somehow combine (like oxygen forming ozone) or 'deionise' (for want of a better word) one another? i think that is all. please refer to which questions you are answering when you do so i don't get too confused. and try not to use too much unnecessary technical talk where possible haha thankyou kindly
  2. it's an oxidizer at elevated temperatures though....
  3. will nitrous oxide oxidise nitric oxide to nitrogen dioxide? given heat perhaps
  4. oh, that's cool, thanks. and a strange little hobbie of mine is creating chemical factories in my head. i like to know how things work and how i could improve them. strange i know but hey Degbahun - was that a way of saying my question was too vague?
  5. any processes for removing hydrogen from gas mixtures? gas mixtures of all kinds, if you can then just suggest processes please, doesn't matter if they are specific to certain mixtures of gas or will only work with different things or whatever. thanks in advance
  6. would atomic oxygen react with a water molecule, on contact, to give hydrogen peroxide? (if i've got it wrong again i mean a single oxygen atom ion thingymajig, not combined with another oxygen atom)
  7. i mean just a single oxygen atom, i can't remember what it's called
  8. if an oxygen ion radical (or whatever you call it) came into contact with a water molecule would it react to give a hydrogen peroxide molecule?
  9. ''For classroom demonstrations, silane can be produced (temporarily) by heating sand with magnesium powder, then pouring the mixture into a 20% dilution in non-aqueous solution of hydrochloric acid. If silane contacts with water it will react violently. The magnesium silicide reacts with the acid to produce silane gas, which combusts on contact with air and produces tiny explosions'' - if this was repeated in a helium atmosphere would the silane be kept?
  10. this isn't homework, this is simply my own curiosity, but i can understand your suspicion. the reason i asked for an equation is because i wanted to know the proportion of products as well as just what they were, but thank you anyway
  11. what is the equation for the reaction of iron with nitric acid? (and yeah i think it has to be iron filings for it to react significantly)
  12. is the size of the fruiting bodies of mycorrhizal fungi such as truffles proportionate to the size of the host tree?
  13. would the constant stream of steam not keep it hot though? even though it's endothermic?
  14. would directing super-heated steam onto coke produce 'water-gas'?
  15. ah right ok yeah i meant drinking alcohol i forgot to specify. thanks
  16. is there a reason why alcohol is never sold in plastic bottles?
  17. when this breakdown happens and the dielectric becomes conductive, once this has happened will the capacitor carry on being able to charge once again or will it be permanently damaged?
  18. when a flame emits light, does it emit it evenly, or it the light more concentrated in some directions?
  19. i am a bit confused about the shape/ positioning of transverse myelitis inflammation. 'Transverse implies that the inflammation is across the thickness of the spinal cord'. i don't quite understand what this means, could someone explain in more detail, describing what area the inflammation covers and it's shape/ positioning? thankyou
  20. in molluscs, what gives chonchiolin the ability to make aragonite crystals form?
  21. what happens to the molecular stucture of diamond at the surface? because there is obviously no other carbon atom to bond to.
  22. in a hydrogen bomb, do all the protons fuse? or are there some left unfused? if the latter then what percentage is left unfused?
  23. if, somehow, only two hydrogen atoms fused in a bomb, would it release enough energy to set of the chain reaction of the other atoms? also, if you had a hydrogen bomb, and next to it a hydrogen tank, would the hydrgogen in the tank undergo fusion aswell? or would it just combust?
  24. so would He-4 fusion not be very violent? or very violent? or a bit violent? or what? when i say violent i mean if it was an uncontrolled reaction, like it is in an h-bomb
