    Inflationary framework of the universe

    Alright everyone, it's been a long time since I've been on here but I've come to realize it's really helpful so I've started visiting again! Anyways, I have a little confusion about the inflationary framework of the universe. So... I've been reading this book called The Fabric of the Cosmos by...

    Poisonous and Infectous

    I need to clear this up: the difference between poisonous and infectous. Apparently infectious agents are living organisms like viruses and bacteria, while poisonous substances are, well, poisonous. But can't viruses be poisonous?

    Chloralkali Process

    So it is parralell to the water. I get it. I'll see when I have time. I need to get everything first, and the new MP3 player I bought has left me with 30 bucks.

    Chloralkali Process

    Yeah, I know, but I thought the electrolysis sounded kinda cool. How does the Anode do anything if its not touching the water?

    Chloralkali Process

    I'm trying to get the hydroxide. How do I keep the chlorine from reacting with the NaOH? When I was researching I saw that you can put a Nafion membrane to keep the two products seperated.

    Chloralkali Process

    How dangerous really is the chloralkali process? I know chlorine is formed, but can I bubble it into a tube or something?

    Chem AP, High school help needed

    Pure water is neutral. However, minerals and such in natural spring water can make it either acidic or basic.

    I Need Experiments

    I'm gonna get back to experimenting soon and I would like some experiments. Something cool, fun, but with a meaning, a goal. Useful products would be fun, too.

    Perfect battery

    Well, confining within the laws of science, it cannot be perfect. But, you can try to find the greatest voltage possible out of a stable battery. As chroot said, lithium-ion batteries are the best, but you may be able to go higher than that.

    Questions on HCl and H2SO4 reactions

    I am learning, on my own, with the help of textbooks kindly given to me at Christmas by my grandfather and my own experimenting, some more advanced chemistry than what I studied in Grade Seven. Partly as preparation for High School, and partly for my own knowledge. However, I ran across some...

    Na or NaO

    Well I ended up doing dome theoretical experiments. With NaCO3 I tried to find some answers: NaCO3 + H2SO4 --> NaHSO4 + HCO3- (What happens to the HCO3 anion?) NaCO3 + HCl --> NaOH + Cl + CO2 (I am not at all sure about this one. I had to re-do it a couple of times and I still don't know.)...

    Na or NaO

    Thanks guys. I wasn't really thinking of electrolysis when I first asked. However, this is what I ended up doing in my research: I tried to figure out some reactions. With NaCO3 I tried to find some answers: NaCO3 + H2SO4 --> NaHSO4 + HCO3- (What happens to the HCO3 anion?) NaCO3 + HCl -->...

    Heat Absorbing Materials

    Well it's for use in a fuel cell. I want to trap the waste heat in a special chamber. Inside that chamber there would be a heat absorber. There's a chart on a website that said that helium had the highest heat capacity, hydrogen excepted. But what you say is also true, if I could get...
