But elephants don't need toothpaste, do they? Mr. Kent, a Long Island chemistry teacher, is at it again with his after hours experiments. We like to refer to him as Mr. Wizard 2.0. Elephant's toothpaste is what science geeks call this foamy reaction. Chemically it is the dec ...more
Elephant toothpaste is the name given to the catalyzed decomposition reaction of 30% hydrogen peroxide that uses soap to collect the oxgen gas that is produced. It is a favorite of most students at chemistry shows.
A science project/trick video showing how to make an easy version of elephant's toothpaste, with materials that everyone has around the house.
C For Chemistry delves into the chemistry of science experiments. This chemist knows what he's talking about. These chemistry experiments are not only fun, but very educational for all of those interested in scientific chemical reactions and properties. This video tutorial wi ...more
We all know what elephant toothpaste is, but what's the best way to make this massive growing foam? Dr. Lithium from NurdRage has answers. He'll show you the best way to reproduce this chemical reaction to get the best foaming action! This is a classic science class demonstrat ...more
Try out this science experiment... a classy chemical demonstration. Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make a foamy elephant toothpaste chemical reaction. There's a reason why they call this elephants toothpaste. Hydrogen peroxide is decomposed to form oxygen gas and w ...more
Making a Elephant Toothpaste Volcano! Dr. Carlson is demonstrating rates of chemical reactions in his video. He takes a solution of 3 % Hydrogen Peroxide and some dish soap and adds Sodium Iodine to the graduated beaker and we get a slow reaction of the two major chemicals. H ...more
Nope, not the kind used by this elephant dentist: But THIS kind, the kind a mad scientist concocts: And what better mad scientist to demonstrate than Nurdrage? Another tutorial this week by WonderHowTo's doctor of science (previously, Turn Your Piggy Bank to Gold). Image cre ...more
Watch this science video tutorial from Nurd Rage on how to get zinc, carbon rods and MnO2 from lantern batteries. They show you how to get zinc, carbon electrodes and manganese dioxide from a lantern battery. Zinc is a good metal for battery experiments. Carbon electrodes ar ...more
WonderHowTo favorite NurdRage once again triggers the inner mad scientist in all of us (well, all of us WonderHowTo-ians at least). Below, watch what happens when steel wool- found in every common household Brillo Pad- is lit on fire. "Normally we do not think of iron as bein ...more
Impossible, right? Ahh, well science says fire and ice can and do coexist. The Science of this experiment:Dry ice at -109ºF, is frozen carbon dioxide (CO2), not water (H2O). Dry ice is also much colder than a freezer ice cube. To be exact it is almost as cold as Earth's cold ...more
The pumpkin is everyone's favorite cucurbit come Halloween time, and while there are only a few types of Halloween-friendly pumpkins out there, there is definitely no shortage of what you can do with them. You can carve faces into them, perform brain surgery, make them sing, ...more
