Copy

The wax or whatever substance the paper is treated (coated) with prevents the water droplet from being absorbed. The water has a surface tension, the attraction of water molecules to each other, which forms drops, giving it the rounded shape that allows it to roll easily around the non-porous paper.

Why should the water be below the pencil line in chromatography?

because when we usually test for a liquid or anything soluble we put a drop of it on the pencil line, then when we put the chromatography paper or filter paper in water the water will get on the paper and start moving upwards here when the water will approach the liquid or solvent or die and then they will move with water throughout the filter or chromatography paper.

Why do paper clips not sink when penny's sink?

because paper clips have the plastic bit around them and have air so they float on water. The effect you are talking about is known as surface tension. this has the effect of forming an elastic skin over the surface of liquids that holds things on the surface if they are light. many insects are able to move around on the surface of the water because of this. Take a glas of water and you can lay a needle or pin or paper clip on top of the water. you can ruin the surface tension by just putting a drop of detergent in the glass as well.

How do you keep your drawing clean?

Depending on the kind of paper and the medium you are using, there are several ways. The easiest ways are the simplest. Start you work in the upper corner of the side opposite your dominant hand. (left if you are right handed, right if you are left handed) and work diagonally down the paper. This is great if you never go back over things or if your mind works that way, but not everyone is good at this. If you are working back over your work the best thing is to use a bridge. Something that spans the paper without actually touching the paper, so you can rest your hand and or forearm on the bridge. In some cases I have used waxed paper, laid over the drawing, but you need to be very careful NOT to let the waxed paper MOVE, as it too can smear the work.

How do you move a block of wood without touching it?

Is the block of wood floating in water? If so, then a drop of dishwashing soap dropped into the water next to the wood, will cause the wood to float away from the drop of soap. The effect is quite pronounced on small pieces of wood, and it is positively dramatic on tiny things like parsley flakes floating on the water. What's happening is that the piece of wood floating in the water is acted on by the surface tension of the water. The water pulls in every direction, so the wood doesn't move. A tiny drop of soap will break the surface tension of the water, and the surface tension on all the OTHER areas of water will cause the wood to be pulled away from the soap drop.
