Day 40 – in which I mention quantum field theory and immediately regret it. #modchem #180blog #chemchat

So with our weird schedule, I spent today moving forward to finish part two of the gas property lab with two classes. But we did discuss a perfect vacuum. I explained that in reality we couldn’t have a perfect vacuum do to quantum effects. That at any point their was a possibility that a particle would briefly exist in a totally evacuated box. That was mind blowing for the few students I was talking to. But then they wanted to use it to explain everything! Well, it will be some interesting discussions going forward.

On a side note the science club hovercraft is coming along well.
