Re: Possible way of doing thermite. Any issues you can see?
Uncle Bob's microscale thermite is GREAT!! and ALWAYS works! I even used it to show this energetic redox reaction in public events. Have a look below: https://twitter.com/andrestrujado/status/572443008202874881 For some reason it won't allow me to insert images or videos. But I perform the thermite reaction in a very small clay flower pot which is small scale and quite impressive. In addition, I have another way to show this called instant thermite, using rusty iron balls and aluminium foil. Check out the video below: http://my.rsc.org/video/132 Hope this helps, Andres
Re: Puzzling exam question on free-energy change.
Thank you Richard, that's fantastically helpful. I went through the topic again with my students; they now feel that this topic doesn't exist in a bubble any more and they have an idea of how it all connects. Which was the plan, so thanks again. One day I'll feel like a proper Chemistry teacher, not a blundering amateur ;-)
