Question:Ok so I have to write a paper about an area of everyday life that involves chemistry. The teacher said that good examples of this would be pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, clothes, food chemistry, agriculture (fertilizers, pesticides etc), cosmetics, etc etc etc additional info: There must be at least one relevant balanced equation. There must be pictures of at least 2 relevant molecules. So what would be some ideas on writing this kind of paper? it must be at the very least 1000 word I need major help this is for my final

Question:need help with a chemistry project and one thing we gotta talk about is how mgcl is used relevant to our lives, like iron is used in nails or aluminium in coke cans - they are like used in everyday life so by any chance does anyone know what we use frequently that contains mgcl? thanks! xxx

Answers:Culinary use ------------------- Magnesium chloride is an important coagulant used in the preparation of tofu from soy milk. In Japan it is sold as nigari ( , derived from the Japanese word for "bitter"), a white powder produced from seawater after the sodium chloride has been removed, and the water evaporated. In China it is called "lushui" ( in Chinese). Nigari or Lushui consists mostly of magnesium chloride, with some magnesium sulfate and other trace elements. It is also an ingredient in baby formula milk. Use as an anti-icer ----------------------------- A number of state highway departments throughout the United States have decreased the use of rock salt and sand on roadways and have increased the use of liquid magnesium chloride as a de-icer or anti-icer. Magnesium chloride is much less toxic to plant life surrounding highways and airports, and is less corrosive to concrete and steel (and other iron alloys) than sodium chloride. The liquid magnesium chloride is sprayed on dry pavement (tarmac) prior to precipitation or wet pavement prior to freezing temperatures in the winter months to prevent snow and ice from adhering and bonding to the roadway. The application of anti-icers is utilized in an effort to improve highway safety. Magnesium chloride is also sold in crystal form for household and business use to de-ice sidewalks and driveways. In these applications, the compound is applied after precipitation has fallen or ice has formed, instead of previously. The use of this compound seems to show an improvement in driving conditions during and after freezing precipitation yet it seems to be negatively affecting electric utilities. Two main issues have been raised regarding the anti-icer magnesium chloride as it relates to electric utilities: contamination of insulators causing tracking and arcing across them, and corrosion of steel and aluminium poles and pole hardware.

Question:Why are acid and base indicators important? How could they be used in everyday life?

Answers:They're important for giving a pretty good estimate of the pH of a solution. How can they be used in everyday life? Well people normally don't go around carrying a bunch of acid/base indicators with them. They're used more for academic purposes. I guess they could be used for things like pools and rain water...

Question:What is the Importance of acidity, basicity & buffers in the chemistry of life

Answers:If our bodies become too acidic or basic, our cells will die. Fortunately, are bodies are well buffered to prevent this. Just don't go drinking a bunch of 12 M HCl!!
