Chemistry Question: Anyone know any jokes about sodium?
Chemistry Answer: Na

Chemistry Question: What is the most important rule in chemistry?

Chemistry Question: What did the scientist say when he found 2 isotopes of helium?
Chemistry Answer: HeHe

4 Chemistry Jokes to tell your tutor at your next study session:

Chemistry Joke #1  Two chemists go into a restaurant.
The first one says “I think I’ll have an H2O.”
The second one says “I think I’ll have an H2O too” — and he died.

Chemistry Joke #2  A proton and a neutron are walking down the street. The proton says, “Wait, I dropped an electron help me look for it.”
The neutron says “Are you sure?” The proton replies “I’m positive.”

Chemistry Joke #3  Money has recently been discovered to be a not-yet-identified super heavy element.
The proposed name is: Un-obtainium.

Chemistry Joke #4  The optimist sees the glass half full.
The pessimist sees the glass half empty.
The chemist see the glass completely full, half in the liquid state and half in the vapor state.

Did you know that the only elements that are liquid at room temperature are bromine and mercury? But, you can hold a lump of gallium in your hand, and your body heat is warm enough to melt it! I bet even your Chemistry tutors didn’t even know that!

Here’s a fun thing that you can do in Huntington Beach, Tustin, and Fullerton.

Pour a handful of salt into a full glass of water. Then, watch as the water level goes down instead of overflowing the glass!

A few more random Chemistry facts for Huntington Beach students and tutors:

–       There is about ½ lb (250 g) of salt (NaCl) in the average adult human body.

–       The only letter that doesn’t appear on the periodic table is “J”.

–       While oxygen gas is colorless, the liquid and solid forms of oxygen are blue.

–       The human body contains enough carbon to provide “lead” (usually graphite) for about 9,000 pencils.

–       One bucket full of water contains more atoms than there are bucketfuls of water in the Atlantic Ocean.

If you’re not excited about Chemistry yet, then maybe these will get you going.

Huntington Beach students, tutors, and teachers, here are a few more fun facts for you!

–       Approximately 20% of the oxygen in the atmosphere was produced by the Amazon rainforest.

–       Helium balloons float because helium is lighter than air.

–       Bee stings are acidic while wasp stings are alkaline.

–       Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide.

–       Liquid air has a bluish tint, similar to water.

–       Hydrofluoric acid is so corrosive that it will dissolve glass. Although it is corrosive, hydrofluoric acid is considered to be a “weak acid”.
