Silly Putty
"Stretch it, pull it, Bounce it" (Ball of fun)

Introduction:
Silly putty is a toy that kid totally enjoy or chemical compound made of silicone and boric acid. It is composed of flexible molecules that give the material flow. Silly putty is a viscoelastic liquid and is a mixture of water, glue, and boron [1]. The word, viscoelastic is a compound word, visco means "resistant to flow" [Dictionary] and elastic describes a material that when stretched returns to its original form. In silly putty, each molecule is made of long chain of identical smaller molecules. When boric acid is applied to these long chains, boron cross-links begin to form [1]. Because of the constant motion of the molecules in solids and liquids, the boron cross-links are not very strong and break very easily. Silly putty react different to quick and slow forces [1]. When one quickly stretches it, it breaks instantly, and if one stretches it slowly it will stretches to greater distance and then breaks at some point. One can bounce it, throw it, decorate with it, stretch it, or make imprints with it.
Uses:
1. Pen Grip – The hard surfaces of pens and pencils can cause calluses, especially if we write for long periods. we can cover the pen’s gripping point with a layer of silly putty. It will cushion fingers [2].

2. Contact Lens Finder – Finding transparent contact lenses on the floor is challenging. They naturally blend with their surroundings. One can roll a ball made of silly putty on the floor [2]. Its sticky surface will certainly pickup the lenses when they happen to be in the ball’s path.
3. Substitute Dice – Since dice are often thrown around, the chances of them getting lost are quite high. One can mold silly putty to create substitutes for your dice [2].

4. As bouncing ball for kids
5. One can press it to the pictures and it transfers the picture to the putty…...

Hallucinogens

...Hallucinogens Hallucinogens disrupt the normal functioning of your brain, making it hard to think, communicate, and focus on reality. Psychosis, panic attacks, and dangerous accidents are all possible risks of taking that one "trip”. Hallucinogens are drugs that distort the way you perceive reality. They can cause you to see, feel, and hear things that don't exist, making it hard to communicate or think clearly. They can also cause rapid, intense emotional mood swings. Types of hallucinogens LSD (AKA: Acid, blotter, cubes, microdot, yellow sunshine, blue heaven, Cid) — an odorless, colorless chemical that comes from ergot, a fungus that grows on grains. Mushrooms (Psilocybin) (AKA: Simple Simon, shrooms, silly putty, sherms, musk, boomers) — psilocybin is the hallucinogenic chemical found in approximately 190 species of edible mushrooms. Mescaline (AKA: Cactus, cactus buttons, cactus joint, mesc, mescal, mese, mezc, moon, musk, topi) — occurs naturally in certain types of cactus plants, including the peyote cactus. – The Risks Taking any hallucinogens can cause you to experience anxiety, fear and paranoia, sometimes verging on psychosis (a complete loss of contact with reality). In this state of mind, it can be very easy to have a dangerous, or even fatal, accident. LONG-TERM EFFECTS Though more common with LSD, all hallucinogens can cause flashbacks—feelings and thoughts that replay the effects of being on the drug weeks or even years......

Earth Structure

...of a transform boundary found on land is in California at the San Andreas Fault zone (Watson 1999). Transform boundaries make it an ideal place for earthquake activity that can violently affect the area around it. Going further under the types of fault of the surface, one will find the lithosphere followed by the asthenosphere. The lithosphere sits on top of the asthenosphere much like an iceberg sits atop water. It includes the upper mantle and the crust and is the source of much earthquake action that spreads up to the surface of the Earth (Earth’s Crust 2010). The lithosphere sits atop the asthenosphere much like a bunch of moving puzzle pieces that are solid and brittle. Furthermore, the asthenosphere is a liquid substance like silly-putty that reacts to the heat and reactions of the inner-Earth (Earth’s Crust 2010). It is vastly different from the lithosphere because it is a liquid and reacts to the inner-earth as opposed the lithosphere reacting to the changes of a liquid asthenosphere. Lastly the Earth’s structure also incorporates fault lines. Fault lines are a fracture within rocks where one side has moved to the other (Chamberlin 157). Faults can be comparable to joints because of the way the rock butts up against each other. When the two sides of a fault moved a certain distance that distance between the two opposite sides is called the slip (Chamberlin 157). Movements vary when faults have movement. Usually, the movements are slow and can’t be detected, but......

Why Are We so Easily Persuaded, Even to Do Silly or Immoral Things?

...Social Fulfillment, Survival and Persuasion. Why are we so easily persuaded, even to do silly or immoral things? Seldom is an action a result of an absolute autonomy. Personal beliefs, morals, thoughts and perception of our own knowledge account for only a portion of human action. This is based around the fact that humans are social creatures who require social gratification as much as physical well being. A life devoid of social progression and fulfillment is to be unenlightened and develops a sense of purposelessness in the individual, social exile can be considered a spiritual death in all but the most unorthodox of individuals. This explains why we will disregard our morals and opinions when opportunity for social progression presents itself. This manifests itself in several forms, and succinctly explains ungainly human traits such as the herd mentality and philosophical lethargy. These traits are exploited by those with an ability to wield power, such as governments and the corporate world. Humans are persuaded by these entities and the herd because it is seemingly the easiest way to avoid social exile; we become admirers of the herd and our enslavers, paradoxically the more profound thinkers will also dislike them. To emphasise the fact that social fulfillment is the most potent, and insatiable persuader, the notion of advertising is entirely based on this human need. However, it must be noted that the core of the ‘social fulfillment’ theory of......

Polymers

...hose are made of), Silly Putty®, and the bouncy ball. Nylon Nylon, a synthetic polymer fiber, was invented by Wallace Hume Carothers at the E.I. DuPont de Nemours Company in Delaware in 1934. Nylon stockings became a huge hit as soon as they were released during World War II after a public supply cut-off. Although Carothers receives recognition for the creation of the polymer, another DuPont employee may the actual inventor. Julian Hill worked with Carothers, and had spent time developing a process where a long fiber with a silky texture could be created of carbon polymers. Carothers may have had a psychological issue, and committed suicide in 1937. The company accredited the invention of nylon to him in honor of him. Nylon was created entirely from petrochemicals unlike previous artificial fabrics like rayon and acetate, which were plant based. Nylon was designed as a synthetic silk for women’s stockings. The material was intended to be less expensive while adding qualities such as strength and insulation. Nylon is not only used in stockings, but is also used in an enormous amount of other products, including basketball nets, carpeting, clothing, fishing line, guitar strings, surgical sutures, tennis racquet strings and vehicle upholstery, among others. Nylon has even been to the moon. On the first trip to the moon, the astronauts wore space suits containing nylon fibers. The flag that Neil Armstrong planted there was also made of nylon.

Obesity in America

...is now almost obsolete. We always need to “supersize it” or get the biggest thing available on the menu. One of the largest contributors and causes to this ongoing epidemic is the fast food industry. With the low-cost easy to get foods many people would rather purchase that than making a quality meal at home. With these low cost fast food meals the quality directly suffers and you left with the sub par ingredients that you are putting into your body. These ingredients make your health suffer at incredible levels, which directly causes obesity. For example McDonald’s uses an ingredient (dimethylpolysiloxane) in the making of their Chicken McNuggets. This ingredient is the same one used in making silicone cosmetic products and also silly putty! (1) Americans are choosing to ingest these foods that puts their health at risk. As you know moderation is not something that Americans are necessarily good at. So when they go out to these fast food restaurants they usually order the largest meal they can, and even “supersize it” if the option is available. These fast food enterprises have realized that too and have started catering towards this “larger” demographic. In the past sixty years the soft drink portion has grown by more than six times what it was. (2) Americans are literally paying companies to give them food that destroys their bodies with high fat high sodium foods making them obese. Lack of exercise in Americans is what helps fuel all of the obesity. Very few......

Lab Report

...Experiment 2 Preparation of Silly Putty (A Favorite Childhood Toy) A short introduction to crosslinked polymers A solution of Elmer’s glue (liquid latex) can be made into a putty by adding borax solution, which creates crosslinks between polymer chains. If a substance springs back to its original shape after being twisted, pulled or compressed, it is most likely a type of polymer called an elastomer. The elastomer has elastic properties (i.e. it will recover its original shape and size after being deformed). An example of an elastomer is a rubber band or a car tire. A cross-link is a bond that links one polymer chain to another. They can be covalent bonds or ionic bonds. "Polymer chains" can refer to synthetic polymers or natural polymers (such as proteins). Procedures 1. Measure approximately 20 ml of Elmer’s glue in a measuring cylinder and pour into a Styrofoam cup. 2. Add 10ml of 4% borax solution (sodium borate) to the cup. Stir vigorously until gelling is complete. 3. Wearing disposable gloves, remove the material from the cup and knead it thoroughly to mix the contents completely. Roll the putty around in your hand, gently squeezing the material to remove air bubbles at the same time. Continue to knead until the desired consistency is reached. Results and discussions 1. It stretches if we pull the putty apart slowly. Feels more stretch than the slime. 2. It breaks cleanly too if we pull it apart sharply and quickly. 3. The putty is very......
