Placed exactly halfway between two bales of hay, the purely rational, deterministic donkey starves to death trying to decide which to eat: there is no reason to prefer one bale over the other. Share Tweet Send Can a liquid change colors by itself? Did NOT work! Better than iodine clock experiment! Check out “Chemical traffic light” – a breathtakingly colorful reaction! Couldn't quite get it to work like I've seen demonstrated in the lab. “Traffic Light” chemistry demo kit for study of oscillating reactions Activity for observing yellow solution turning red when flask is swirled, and turning green when flask is shaken for demonstration purposes (flask sold separately) Instructions and material safety data sheet (MSDS) packet for product information and handling procedures He says the function must be continuous because this follows from physics.

WILD! Dissolve ca 0.25g of cobalt(II) chloride in 5cm3 distilled water in a test tube and add to the hot reaction mixture. © Teaching Ideas 1998-2020 Worked the first try, but at the actual school science fair, 5th graders, would not turn green. No spam – just awesome science news once a week. You would have to do this experiment to find out. It's difficult to get the amount of products accurate. 4. One of the most exciting and ambitious home-chemistry educational projects. Repeating the experiment with 1M NaOH (corrosive) eliminates the green colour. In Maths we use a traffic lights system. Russell O'Connor (February 9, 2008 2:08 PM) In reality, the donkey cannot simultaneously have an absolute position and absolute velocity. Heat the solution to about 70°C. 3. Do not try this at home. This collection of over 200 practical activities demonstrates a wide range of chemical concepts and processes. A. Lainchbury et al, ILPAC, 2nd edn, vol 11. Brent Hugh (March 16, 2008 6:51 AM) This reminds me of a result that seems to be pretty well known in social psychology, that people have a harder time making a choice (and even choose to make no choice at all) when there are too many options--especially if many of those options are all quite similar.For example, if you're buying toothpaste and there are 3 choices, $1, $2, and $3, and very clearly labeled as 'economy', 'normal', and 'deluxe' varieties you'll probably have no problem making a choice.But if there are 15 different choices, all right around $1 and all just indicating basic "fluoride toothpaste" people have a much harder time making a choice.What I've noticed going on internally in situations like that is a sort of confusion, much like that experienced by Buridan's Ass, as you try to think of a logical reason to choose one variety over another when there really is no good reason.There is a brief informal article on this topic at APA Online. KOH is dissolved in water, dextrose (glucose) is added to this solution, along with the indicator solution. You've already subscribed with this email.

Unfortunately, the value for this half-cell is not quoted in the literature but even if it were shown to be energetically favourable, there would still be no way of knowing whether the reaction was kinetically favourable. At first glance, you might think that in non-standard conditions this value is not that far out of the range required, but concentration or temperature changes do not alter ΔE values very much.
