Green Solutions Why do I get varied results with Copper electrolysis?

Question by Quimby: Why do I get varied results with Copper electrolysis?
I have tried copper electrolysis several times using pennys and various batteries (1.5 v to 9 v). Sometimes I get a brownish dark green solution and other times I get a blueish green solution (what I expected). I know I am getting a Copper Chloride, but why the difference in color? The only other ingediants I use is salt.

Best answer:

Answer by physandchemteach
1) Perhaps you are getting Cu2+ ions (blueish green) some times and Cu1+ ions (dark green) other times. It may have something to do with the difference in voltage you have between the batteries.
2) You may have some oxidation of the pennies which is entering in to the color of the solution. Copper (II) oxide (CuO) is black and will cause the solution to turn dark.

Green Building Materials What are the implications of green chemistry?

Question by Davish: What are the implications of green chemistry?
Hello, I got an assignment to do on green chemistry and there’s this part asking about the implications of green chemistry. Can you please help me out?

Best answer:

Answer by Soc the Poetic Chemist
here is Cal Berkeley’s (GO BEARS!!) definition

I am a Cal grad

http://bcgc.berkeley.edu/newchem

Green chemistry is the design, production and use of chemical products that:
Utilize sustainable raw materials completely and efficiently
Minimizes waste and energy consumption in product production
Creates useful and long-lasting products
Produces products that are environmentally benign through recycling or natural degradation
Sustainability is achieved by stressing chemical efficiency throughout the life cycle of chemical products, from inception to disposal.
Driving Research
From designing nanostructured solar cells to the production of new cancer fighting drugs, all chemical design, production and use can benefit from the application of the basic principles of sustainability and green chemistry. Chemists and chemical engineers realize the importance of sustainable design principles and are the key player who can effectively use green chemistry principles to address the challenges presented by resource shortages, chemical waste and toxicity, and climate change.
Training Leaders
Our goal is to bring about a generational transformation in society’s production and use of chemicals and chemical products, We have a unique opportunity to teach societies’ future leaders to think about critical new technologies and to advance the principles of green chemistry and sustainability because more than half of all Berkeley undergraduates take at least one laboratory chemistry course. If other universities and colleges follow Berkeley’s lead, in another generation the principles and practices of green chemistry will be second nature to chemical industry practitioners, chemists and chemical engineers, regulators and policy makers, and to educators.
Transforming Curriculum
To meet the demands of 21st Century education, we are redesigning and rebuilding our undergraduate chemistry and chemical engineering teaching labs. This effort is fully integrated with changes in our curriculum to communicate the fundamentals of laboratory science- including the principles and practice of green chemistry- while including topical applications that demonstrate the central role of molecular thinking in virtually every scientific discipline. As a result of these efforts, the College of Chemistry will remain a national role for safe, sustainable, efficient, and inspiring laboratory education for decades to come.
Innovating Responsibly
With a growing world population, and with standards of living rising in many formerly poor countries, the demand for chemical products will continue to skyrocket. Using today’s technologies, it is becoming difficult to meet this demand while protecting human health and the world’s environment. The way forward is to advance new research methods and capabilities that build sustainability into chemical design processes from their inception, and to create new chemical technologies that minimize environmental and public health problems while producing the products that society demands.

Austin Green Living How to get into community college?

Question by R: How to get into community college?
I am a 30 year old living in Texas. I am originally from the UK, and I would like to apply to a local community college to pursue a course in Graphic Design. I have completed 12 years of education, but I don’t have any original documentation and no means of getting any. I have a green card so my immigration status is (I assume) not an issue. Can anyone tell me what steps I need to take next? Thanks in advance.

Best answer:

Answer by Stephen M
Community Colleges are about as open as any school can be. I am not certain if you even need to provide any info on previous education or not. However, whatever the case, while you may have no “original documentation” go talk with them and ask them. The worst that will happen is you will write or send some form to the previous school you were at. I would imagine they will not even need to wait for that documentation.

Sustainable Why is it important to design a sustainable house?

Question by Pretty ‘n’ Pink!: Why is it important to design a sustainable house?
And what features a house needs to make it sustainable?

Thanks for answering :)

Best answer:

Answer by Overrated
If you don’t build a sustainable house it will fall apart after a few months or years, and

a) smash you flat inside it, and

b) cost somebody a lot of money to clean up your pieces and rebuild the house.

Basically, all support systems, walls and roof, need to be braced with cross supports that form triangular shapes with the vertical and horizontal frame pieces which are usually light weight lumber. The forming of triangles is the underlying principle for structural strength – so study your geometry.
