Salt

Originally commission by the Cornell Science Center for "Too Small Too See" -- an exhibit on nano-technology.



"Salt Freakout" shows a simulation of a salt crystal. When the participants wave their arms around, they add kinetic energy to the mixture causing the solution to heat up. As the temperature rises, the salt crystal begins to dissolve and eventually all the atoms are zipping around in solution. When the participants stop moving, the solution cools and the atoms will precipitate back into a crystal.
