3000°C and 100,000 atmospheres. That's 10,132,500 kPA, at least 20,000 times more pressure than the pressure than inside the average bike tire!
A long tube of glass, usually marked in 0.1 mL units, that's equipped with a stopcock and used for the controlled addition of a liquid to a receiving flask.
Mercury (melting point of -38.9°C). Gallium gets close, with a melting temperature of 29.8°C (room temperature is usually defined as 25°C).
No. White gold is usually an alloy of gold and a white metal such as silver and palladium. Nickel is no longer used due to skin allergies.
Adenosine triphosphate, the molecule that is used for energy by all cells
True. Metals expand as they are heated, and this can cause metal structures to stretch with temperature changes.
True. The boiling point of a material is not just dependent on the temperature of the material, but also the pressure that it is under. This is why you can boil water at about 71°C at the top of Mount Everest.
False. The word “Chemistry” comes from “Alchemy”. “Chemise” means shirt in French.
Adamantium. Wolverine’s claws are made of Adamantium, but it’s not a real metal!
Dynamite. He did also invent the blasting jelly and detonators, and over 300 other things from synthetic materials to other explosive-related things. Even though he came up with all this stuff that was used by the military, he became a pacifist in later life.
Plasma. Basically a soup of gases that have been stripped of some of their electrons, at extreme temperatures. As far as we know, it’s the most abundant because stars are mostly plasma!
-273°C. This is called “Absolute Zero”, the point at which particles stop moving. Since temperature and heat is a measure of how much energy a particle has to jiggle with, and you can move any less than not moving at all, this is the coldest possible temperature anything can be.
True. By squeezing all the gas molecules tightly together a gas can become liquid.
7 billion billion billion. That’s 7 followed by 27 0’s, try writing that down!
Neither. It is an amorphous solid—a state somewhere between those two states of matter. Solids are highly organised structures, and liquids are not. Amorphous means that it’s ordered, but not as highly as solids.
