Chemistry in Action: Differences in Density Due to Temperature

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Recently, we've presented a few of our demos from Thinkwell's Physics with Prof. Ephraim Fischbach. Now we're going to change gears and look at some of our demos from Thinkwell's Chemistry. As with Physics, these Chemistry videos are full of interesting experiments.

In this video, Prof. Gordon Yee from Virginia Tech shows that a material's density will differ depending on its temperature. This simple concept's impact can be seen all around us. Ocean currents are partially maintained through differences in temperature, and we can see this principle at work in hot air balloons and lava lamps.

Enjoy yourself as we dive into Chemistry in Action with Gordon Yee, and keep a look out for more Chemistry demos in future posts.
