Pulsating Electrochemical Reaction: Mercury Beating Heart  
A drop of mercury in a watch glass is covered with a solution of potassium chromate in concentrated sulfuric acid. An iron nail is positioned so that it nearly touches the mercury. Eventually, the mercury drop starts to beat rhythmically, like a beating heart.

On Capillary Rise and Nucleation  R. Prasad
A comparison of capillary rise and nucleation shows that both phenomena result from a balance between two competing energy factors: a volume energy and a surface energy. This comparison may help to introduce nucleation with capillary rise, a topic familiar to students.

Fog Machines, Vapors, and Phase Diagrams  Ed Vitz
This series of demonstrations elucidate the operation of commercial fog machines using common laboratory materials and can be adapted for elementary through tertiary levels. The formation of fogs is discussed in terms of the phase diagram for water and other chemical principles.

Stilling Waves with Ordered Molecular Monolayers  Ed Vitz
The amazing ability of a film of oil one molecule thick to dissipate the relatively large energy of water waves can be readily demonstrated, but an explanation of the effect has been elusive until recently.

Flying Over Atoms  John R. Markham
Flying Over Atoms provides tools for teaching about atoms and solid surfaces in an introductory chemistry course. Flying Over Atoms introduces and stimulates interest in atomic surfaces and current methods for imaging at the atomic scale. Flying over Atoms uses Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) data and the software program Vistapro, published by Rom Tech, Inc. (not provided) to allow students to create QuickTime movies of atomic landscapes.
