Q:

How can I make glycerin bubbles?

A:

One effective way to make glycerin bubbles is to combine 1/2 cup of liquid dishwasher detergent, 4 1/2 cups of water and 4 tablespoons of glycerin. Then mix gently to minimize foaming. The inclusion of glycerin increases the viscosity of the solution, thereby increasing the time bubbles last before popping.

    What does a suspension refer to in chemistry?

    A:

    In chemistry, a suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which one substance is dispersed throughout a substance in another phase, and in which the particles of the first substance are between 0.00002 and 0.00004 of an inch in diameter. In order to be a suspension rather than a colloid, the mixture must be capable of sedimentation if allowed to stand. Most suspensions are comprised of solid particles suspended in a liquid, such as paint, blood or muddy water, but they can also consist of liquid particles suspended within a gas, such as an aerosol spray.

  • Q:

    Why don't lipids and water mix?

    A:

    Lipids and water do not mix because lipids are nonpolar molecules without a charge, so they do not attach themselves or bond to charged (polar) water molecules. Only charged polar molecules will attach to other charged molecules.
