Science Saturday – Can You Speak Chemistrian?


Last week was physics, this week it’s the turn of chemistry….or rather, the language of chemistry.

Have you ever wondered (or simply forgotten) why some chemicals are pronounced with  is an “ide” at the end, and other chemical compounds end with an “ate” or an “ite”, or what the hell is an ion.

Well help is at hand because crashcourse’s Hank is here to help us learn the funny and foreign language of Chemistrian, so that you too can be fluent and understand what on Earth your Chemistry teacher was talking about…..oh, and he makes fun of the Belgians too just for good measure 🙂
