The Periodic Table of Videos

The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham

Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century - but this modern version has a short video about each one.

We've done all 118 - but our job's not finished. Now we're updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments.

Plus we're making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab.

Most recently we've started a new series - The Molecular Videos - featuring our favourite molecules and compounds.

Follow the link for the videos :smoke: : http://www.periodicvideos.com/index.htm

Here showing number.19, Kalium(Potassium).

I once applied for a job as a mustard cutter.

But unfortunately I wasn’t quite good enough.

It is really a very good example of how to best use the internet. Love it!

So do I. Thanks for reminding me to take a deeper look.
Now browsing the http://www.periodicvideos.com/molecularvideos.htm

Cool!

That's fantastic. I'm going to send the link to my SIL, a science teacher.

I've got scars in my forehead from that experiment in school when I was about ten. They changed (or actually invented) the protocol after that. Missed my eye by about an inch. Molten Potassium on the skin hurts.

Great series though, my nine year old and I watch it.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.
