Hello and welcome back to your Science Tuition. We are glad to feed our chemistry lovers with the best chemistry facts.
Continuing with our topic on the famous chemists and their contributions, in this Science Tuition lesson we are going to learn more about Thomas Graham.
Born on 20 December 1805, Graham was a British chemist. He is regarded as the father of colloid chemistry. And he is famous for his pioneering work in dialysis and the diffusion of gases. He is known for his studies on the behavior of gases the result of which formulated two relationships; the first one was regarding gas diffusion, and the second one was regarding gas effusion. These two are sometimes referred to as combined law (describing both phenomena). He compared the different rates at which a variety of gases disperse through some absorbent pots. And he also evaluated the rate of effusion through a tiny hole.
That is all on Science Tuition. Stay tuned to learn more.
