Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to see how salol crystals will form when they are melted and the only way to make them solid again.
Introduction: Is there a preferred crystal shape for solid salol? Rhombus
Is cooling liquid salol a 100% effective way to cause solidification? No, it is not.
Procedure:
1) Obtain a slide of solid salol, two magnifying glasses, and a match book. 2) Use a magnifying glass to look at the crystal and describe what you see. 3) Scratch off some of the crystal from the smaller side and save it on your desk. 4) Light a match and heat the bigger crystal side and time how many seconds it takes for the crystal to reach its melting point. 5) Let the melted crystal cool to room temperature and see if it has solidified. 6) Add a small piece of the crystal you previously scratch off onto the desk, and put it into the cooled crystal. 7) After you watch the crystal solidify again, heat the crystal up again. 8) This time, add a piece of lead, paper, or a piece of the match, and see if the solution solidifies.
Observation: The crystal is flaky, shiny, and white. It is lumpy in some parts and flat in others. The crystals are in a shape of a rhombus. It took about 7 seconds for the crystal to melt. After adding the lead to the crystal, the lead did nothing. It did not re-solidify the crystal.
Conclusions: After melting the crystal, the crystal does not solidify at room temperature. It does, however, re-solidify when solid crystal is added to it. We can conclude that this crystal remains melted at room temperature and does not re-solidify. I think that the room temperature keeps the crystal at a liquid point because it is too warm to solidify the…...

Liquid Crystal Display

...Liquid Crystal Display The LCD is used for the purpose of displaying the words which we are given in the program code. This code will be executed on microcontroller chip. By following the instructions in code the LCD display the related words. Fig.5.6 shows the LCD display. 5.3.1 Introduction [pic] Fig. 5.6: LCD Display The LCD display consists of two lines, 20 characters per line that is interfaced with the PIC16F73.The protocol (handshaking) for the display is as shown in Fig. The display contains two internal byte-wide registers, one for commands (RS=0) and the second for characters to be displayed (RS=1). It also contains a user-programmed RAM area (the character RAM) that can be programmed to generate any desired character that can be formed using a dot matrix. To distinguish between these two data areas, the hex command byte 80 will be used to signify that the display RAM address 00h will be chosen Port1 is used to furnish the command or data type, and ports 3.2 to 3.4 furnish register select and read/write levels. Theory A liquid crystal is a material (normally organic for LCDs) that will flow like a liquid but whose molecular structure has some properties normally associated with solids. The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is a low power device. The power requirement is typically in the order of microwatts for the LCD. However, an LCD requires an external or internal light source. It is limited to a temperature range of about 0°C to 60°C and......

Crystal Meth

...Crystal Methamphetamine - The New Drug of Choice Crystal methamphetamine, also known as ice, crank, glass and shards, is today’s street drug of choice. A popular stimulant among club-goers, it induces a long-lasting and euphoric high, preceded by a very intense low. Smoking crystal meth is the most common method of use, but it can also be ingested, injected, or snorted. Why is meth so popular? Crystal meth’s prevalence in society is due to three main factors: • Easy to make - Crystal meth is composed of easily accessible ingredients which can be purchased over-the-counter at local drugstores. Its production is inexpensive, and the drug can be fabricated in a home-made laboratory, as is often the case. • Cheap - A real ‘bang for your buck’, crystal meth is as inexpensive to make as it is in relation to the length and strength of the high. Users can be stoned from 6 to 10 hours, experiencing an exhilarated state of mind. Other effects include wakefulness, a curb in appetite, and increased energy. • Highly addictive - Crystal meth is as addictive as cocaine and heroine, and some would argue that it is even more so. The day after its use brings waves of depression, anger and sadness to the user. A common cure among addicts is, unsurprisingly, more meth. As per the Drug and Alcohol Services Information System, (DASIS), the percentage of treatment admissions for crystal methamphetamine abuse more than doubled between 1995 and 2005, from 4 percent to 9 percent – a......

Crystal

...Analysis Crystal is the main character in my book, she is somewhat shy but when she gets in front of the camera she turns into a different person, she says her modeling career is just something she does to bring extra money into her household but her mother wants her to model so she can relive her childhood dreams through Crystal. The fact that Crystal models to bring money to her household shows maturity, and that she is very responsible to be a 16 year old. Modeling was not Crystal's only strong point, she was also a great writer, she wrote articles in her school's magazine which is "The Caliper". At the beginning of the novel she was a nice, dainty preacher's daughter with strong morals. She is also drop dead gorgeous and this is the reason she pursued modeling. Her changing for the worse started when her grades in school started to drop because of her modeling sessions and practices, another factor in her transformation was meeting a model that was not much older than her that had a great influence on her, her name is Rowena. Crystal also loves to joke around and is very fun loving and has a positive attitude about most things , but also has a smart mouth and is very snappy. The point in the story where Crystal does a complete 180 is when her closest friend in the modeling world, Rowena, dies which makes her rethink her whole career and makes her wonder is it really worth it, this is where she changed for the better overall....

Swarovski Crystal

...For admirers of fine crystal, there is something magical about the name Swarovski. For admires of speed and glamour there is something magical about the name Ferrari or Lamborghini. And, without a shadow of doubt, for the lovers of high technology, innovation and music there is something magical about the name Apple. While ages ago our ancestors were bothered by the question of who came first a chicken or an egg, today the question is different. As the fame and success of Apple company and its products is increasing, the question one may rise is for example: what came first … the iPod or iTunes? In my paper I would like to present the financial report of the iTunes. To begin with I would like to give some background history of the product because even though the product itself is familiar to everyone, some may still wonder of its origin and principle function. As a matter of fact iTunes came first, even though it seems that we started hearing about the iPods much earlier. Before the iPod was released, Mac users had had the ‘iLife’ on their computers. The Ilife also included iTunes version 1.0 – however it looked rather different from the “modern” iPods or itunes. The main difference was that the iLife has a three-note icon and not the double green one which people are familiar with today. So, as we can see, the iTunes was around, for for the Mac only, of course, from January 2001. In April of 2003, a new version of iTunes (4.0) was released. That same year the iTunes Store......

Crystal Meadows of Tahoe

...Crystal Meadows of Tahoe, Inc Introduction Crystal Meadows of Tahoe (CMOT) is a holding company for two different ski resorts. The majority of revenues from this company come from the sale of lift tickets, ski rentals, skiing lessons, and food and beverage sales; revenues are also primarily generated during the winter months. CMOT has recently partnered with Toiyabe Resort Company for the development of a year-round ski resort in the Tahoe area, and have invested $5,300,000 in the venture. CMOT and Toiyabe plan to begin construction of the resort in 1992. CMOT also plans to invest $8,200,000 in their two ski resorts (Lake Ridge and Crystal Meadows) in 1992. During 1991, CMOT saw very positive increases to net income and shareholder’s equity. This year was exceptional in terms of operations, bringing CMOT the most skier days in the company’s history. CMOT is planning some significant capital investments in 1992. An analysis of their income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow are helpful in guiding the company’s proposed investments. What does the analysis of cash flows reveal about CMOT that was not evident from analysis of the income statements and balance sheets? The income statement for CMOT for 1991 has the company showing a net income of $1,418,000. This figure is $747,000 higher than the previous year at $671,000 and more than doubles CMOT’s net income from 1990 to 1991. CMOT’s balance sheet for 1991 indicates that the company had $7,585,000 in retained...

...Sociability and Human Intelligence Crystal Phillips Wake Technical Community College Sociability and Human Intelligence Introduction Recently, human intelligence has been a subject that frequented the realms of sociology. It has hugely been praised as the most effective predictor of academic excellence and sociability (Bailey, 1996). Although studies have claimed that human intelligence is a predictor of success in academics, only a few have attempted to confirm these assertions. In the study, the relations between emotional intelligence, age and sociability will be tested. Similarly, academic performance will be measured. Studies have established that emotional intelligence is positively correlated with sociability, although it is not significantly correlated to age. Another notable finding is that academic performance is closely related to human intelligence (Kurzweil, 1999). Studies suggest the date of birth does not in any way have an impact on human intelligence with many of these studies contracting.? Some ofWith the findings that consider smaller children are less smart than the older ones. New findings from an expanded study sample have established key flaws in previous research (Kurzweil, 1999). Many of these studies compared siblings from different families, and thus, their findings concerned the disparity between small and large families, not the disparity between siblings. This study seeks to establish whether......

Smaller LCDs are used in handheld TVs, PDAs, and portable video game devices. The image on an LCD screen is created by sandwiching an electrically reactive substance between two electrodes. This colour a type of display used in digital watches and many portable computers. LCD displays utilize two sheets of polarizing material with a liquid crystal solution between them. An electric current passed through the liquid causes the crystals to align so that light cannot pass through them. Each crystal, therefore, is like a shutter, either allowing light to pass through or blocking the light of this substance can be changed by increasing or reducing the electrical current. Since LCD screens are based on the principle of blocking light (rather than emitting it), they use up much less power than standard CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) monitors Monochrome LCD images usually appear as blue or dark gray images on top of a......

Crystal Growing

...Objective: To demonstrate the way crystals grow and how they affect the behavior of material. A comparison can also be made between the growth of the crystals in metals and non-metals. Equipment: Hot plates, glass plates, beakers, glass rods, scale to weigh out the salt, graduated flask for water, furnace, crucibles, sand, tongs, safety glasses and gloves. Starting materials: Epsom salts, water, 50% Aluminum - 50% Copper alloy (previously alloyed). Safety: Whenever you are dealing with hot liquids, there is the potential for burns and spills. Protect yourself from the possible risks, especially around the hot metal. Make sure you know where any potential spillage will go and place something in the way to protect yourself. In part ‘B’ be especially careful of the hot metal. Remember, it will still be very hot, even when it has changed back into a solid. Procedure: Part A: A supersaturated solution of salt will separate out into crystals on cooling. The size of the crystals is a function of the rate of cooling, the amount of impurities present and the degree of supersaturation (concentration of salt present in the solution). 1. Dissolve 25 grams of Epsom salts in 25 ml of water. Heat the water until all the salt dissolves, but keep the water below the boiling point. If all the salt will not dissolve, add water in small quantities until it does. Pour some of the solution onto a clean glass plate so as to form a thin film and watch it solidify. If it solidifies too......

Crystals

...Crystals While doing research on my project I found out a lot of things about crystals. I found out that crystals are solids that form by a regular repeated pattern of molecules connecting together. The salt in the kitchen, the snow, and the diamond in a ring are all crystals. The word crystal comes from a Greek word”krysos” which means “ice cold”. It was believed that crystals were a type of ice that was so cold it never melts. Crystals can form in a lot of different shapes. The shapes range from cubes, hexagons, double pyramids to name a few. My crystal shaped into a sphere but usually they are symmetrical from one side to other, but many types of crystals are not. The shape of the crystal is determined by the chemical components inside the crystal and the chemical bonds between the atoms and molecules. The atoms in smallest building block of a crystal are called a “Unit Cell” The atoms in each unit cell are held together by electrical forces or bonds. When a lot of unit cells are near each other they arrange themselves in different patterns. They attract one another in some directions more than others. This pattern gives the crystal their shape with symmetrical surfaces called facets. Crystals also comes in many different colors, from clear diamonds, to red rubies, to blue sapphires and more they get there color from the materials that make up the crystals. The colors come from the color of the spectrum that the crystal does not absorb. They are used for a lot of......

... TERM PAPER Topic:LCD (LIQUED CRYSTAL DISPLAY) DOA: 22/02/2010 DOS: 06/05/2010 Submitted to: Submitted by: Bindu ABSTRACT LCD projectors are becoming smaller and less expensive, and are starting to incorporate built-in light sources and speakers. LCD panels are also improving in resolution and response. An LCD panel is fairly light and thin, but require a separate overhead projector. The LCD projector contains its own light source, so no overhead projector is required. These have more multimedia features than LCD panels, and usually include speakers and multiple inputs and outputs. Polysilicone LCDs are smaller, and allow more light to pass through than thin-film transistor LCDs. LCD projectors typically weigh between 10 to 50 pounds. Heavier ones are also available that can achieve movie screen quality, although these are more costly, and better suited to permanent installations. Most LCD panel devices have a screen of between 8.4 and 10.4 inches diagonally. A good panel or projector will also provide on-screen adjustment, remote control and a hard shell carrying case.

Molecular Crystal Structures

...Molecular Crystal Structures Crystalline and amorphous are the two categories of solids. Crystalline solids are those that have a long range order and are rigid. This means that the atoms, molecules or ions are in a specific position. Glass is an example of the other category of solids and is an amorphous solid. Amorphous solids are different than crystalline since these solids do not have a structured arrangement and long-range order of molecules. Crystalline solids have a structure that has a lattice characteristic and is most efficient when closely packed together. Ionic, covalent, molecular, and metallic are the four types of crystals. These crystals are different because of their structures and properties that include their melting point, hardness, density forces that hold the crystal particles together. This method can be applied to various areas of drug research, quality control and manufacturing. Examining the changes in the crystal structures, using the low frequency light waves can be applied to how a human body absorbs drugs. The need was discovered when a certain drug was not used right away. The drug structure changed into a crystallized solid and was not able to be dissolved or absorbed by the human body in this state. The London dispersion forces help to predict crystal structures of many different substances. There are many different environmental factors that can affect how crystals form. Those factors include humidity, temperature, and light....
