Dissolving Everyday Objects In Acid But One Stands Against The Acid
YouTube channel “Chemistry Flicks” has been hard at work dousing everyday objects in acid, all in the name of science.
They’ve coated a host of items — including fruit, meat, a lab coat, chocolate, and a smartphone — in chlorosulfonic acid over the past two weeks.
After all the items the most humble thing stood against the mighty acid, check it out at the end.
First up, the channel soaked a banana in the colorless, corrosive liquid:
Then, they used the acid — which is corrosive to metals and can cause severe burns — on a sponge:
The scientists then graduated to larger objects, such as this chicken breast:
Curious as to how the acid, which is very toxic if inhaled, would affect their lab coats if they accidentally spilled it, they tried it out:
Next, they destroyed an LG Nexus 5 smartphone:
But the one substance that didn’t appear to be damaged by the acid was….
Yes chocolate against the acid and wins remarkably.
