11: Sodium Tile (12 Days of Christmas)

published on July 20, 2020

On the eleventh day of Christmas we have element number eleven sodium not a piece of sodium a tile with sodium on it and sodium is element number eleven and it really is a tile look on the back it was made by an Italian school girl called Sofia who was brought here by her father

Leonardo plus a school friend and other family members she's a real periodic videos fan and she wanted to come for her birthday to Nottingham and she made this tile for me so I could put my mug on top of it and

The reason why she chose sodium is because she saw in a video as sodium video that I said that sodium was my favorite element holy crap not because it explodes but because my mother's first name her Christian name was inna i

Na and there's a little girl she used to call herself na and my children used to call their grandmother now because of this so every time I see the symbol na na I gets us a warm motherly feeling and Sophia like this and made me a great

Tile so I have it on my desk and I brought it down here specially for the 11th day so number 11 tile with sodium two elements osmium and thorium periodic table handkerchief charts beam from our carbon lab fan from a fan

And six-carbon blowing plectrum for guitar for drinking vessels three chemical badges two periodic table bed covers and one piece of tartaric acid from a Swiss wine barrel let's see what we have for day 12

Tiny droplets of metallic sodium and as these droplets go through the air some of them will react with the water vapor in the air and some will react with the oxygen in the air there's a lot more oxygen than water
