Why, hello there! It's rather rare for someone to actually breach upon my page. I'm proud of you for taking the step to actually look at this sorely boring page.

Transformation of a supersaturated solution into solid crystals

It just takes one small nudge to spark the transformation of a seemingly stable liquid into a solid. The liquid – a supersaturated solution of sodium acetate – consists of water with more dissolved sodium acetate salt than can be stably sustained. Drop in a salt crystal and provide the kick needed to start the transformation into the more thermodynamically favourable solid state.

But if the solid state is more thermodynamically stable, why does it exist as a liquid at all? It’s to do with scale: the solution is only better off as a solid at the macroscopic scale – the scale of the whole solution. On a microscopic scale, the individual crystals are not thermodynamically favourable, so until you start it off with a salt crystal (which is, relatively, a huge disturbance), the transformation won’t begin.

Watch the full ‘Tales from the Prep Room’ film for more explanation, extra footage, and the curious problem we encountered when filming.

An Interesting Conversation in the Car.

Me: Hey Mom, what would happen if you used Termite-infested wood for a fire?

Mom: They'd scream.

Mom & me at the same time: *makes high-pitched squealy noise*

Me: *looks at Mom*

Mom: *looks at me*

Mom & me at the same time: *bust up laughing*


Y’see, this is what happens when I go surfin’ the web for any subject with “lol” glued to the end of it. And I have no idea where the hell it came from, nor what is being said. (I don’t have the time/patience to figure it out right now. :P)
