  1. It’s sad to see people make the effort of creating a video but then not bothering with proper formulas… which disqualifies the video as a teaching resource :/ All it takes to use subsript numbers and take care with capitalisation.

  2. My teacher did this reaction when I was in 9th grade. He dipped a glass rod in hydrochloric acid and held it over a beaker of ammonia (or perhaps it was the other way around, it was a very long time ago!), then walked around the classroom daring us to lick the glass rod. I was the only one who dared to do it (because I already knew what it was).

    I just love me some ammonium chloride, that stuff is so amazingly good! In case you think I’m nuts, the other name for it is salmiak, the main ingredient that gives salty licorice its taste.
