05 Sep Science Tuition Presents Chenigmas
Hi, and welcome back to your Science Tuition. We hope you have been studying, learning and enjoying our classes.
In today’s Science Tuition, we are back again with new chemistry enigmas which will blow your mind away. So, let us proceed:
- Did you know that hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, whereas oxygen is the most abundant element on the Earth? Well, now you do.
- Now that we are already thinking about oxygen let us try and digest one more fact. Approximately 20% of the oxygen is provided by the Amazon rainforest which as you know is majorly located in Brazil.
- Can you think of an animal which doesn’t drink water? Well, we found one for you. It’s a frog. They use their skin to absorb water as well as for breathing. In short, they consume oxygen through their skin.
- You know about lipsticks right, and some of you may love using it. But we bet you did not know about a strange fact about lipsticks. Fish scales are commonly used as an integral part of lipstick ingredients.
- We all probably love soft drinks. And Coca-Cola is one of the most famous brands in the world but did you know how it got its name? Well, Coca-Cola initially contained cocaine!!
- You may have wondered that what is inside Dynamites that makes it so strong, well it contains peanuts as a part of its ingredients. Peanut oil is used to make nitroglycerine.
- If you freeze seawater or saltwater you can get freshwater ice! It sounds strange but it is a fact.
- You have seen the periodic table many times, right? And it seems like there is not a single alphabet left which is not on the periodic table but that’s not right. J is the only letter that doesn’t appear on the periodic table.
- Suppose a fire has caught up in the middle of a mountain, then what will happen? Will the fire reach uphill quicker or downhill? The fire spread uphill quicker than downhill. That is because temperature considerable affects the rate of combustion.
That is all for today in Science Tuition. Hope to see you soon with more of some cool facts and ideas. Stay tuned.
