Interesting details about chemistry.

Few amazing facts about Chemistry;

 Chemistry is a fascinating science full of unusual trivia. Some of the most fun and most interesting chemistry facts include:

– The only solid elements that assume liquid form ​at room temperature are bromine and mercury. However, you can melt gallium by holding a lump in the warmth of your hand.
– Unlike many substances, water expands as it freezes. An ice cube takes up about 9% more volume than the water used to make it.1
– If you pour a handful of salt into a full glass of water, the water level will actually go down rather than overflowing the glass.
– Similarly, if you mix half a liter of alcohol and half a liter of water, the total volume of the liquid will be less than one liter.
 – The human body contains enough carbon to provide “lead” (which is really graphite) for 9,000 pencils.
– Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, while oxygen is the most abundant element in the Earth’s atmosphere, crust, and oceans (about 49.5%).4
– The rarest naturally occurring element in the Earth’s crust may be astatine. The entire crust appears to contain about 28 grams of the element.5
– Hydrofluoric acid is so corrosive that it will dissolve glass. Although it is corrosive, hydrofluoric acid is considered to be a weak acid.
– One bucket full of water contains more atoms than there are buckets of water in the Atlantic ocean.
– Helium balloons float because helium is lighter than air.
-Bee stings are acidic, while wasp stings are alkaline.
– Hot peppers get their heat from a molecule called capsaicin. While the molecule acts as an irritant to mammals, including humans, birds lack the receptor responsible for the effect and are immune to the burning sensation from exposure.
