What is Salt?
Chemical properties of salt, sodium chloride. The site also contains links to
other places with information about salt chemistry.

  • What is salt? Sodium chloride ( ) or common is the chemical compound NaCl, composed of the elements sodium and chloride ( )

  • Salt occurs naturally in many parts of the world as the mineral ( ) halite ( ) and as mixed evaporites in salt lakes

  • has lots of salt; it contains an average of 2.7% (by weight) NaCl, or 78 million metric tons per cubic kilometer, an inexhaustible supply (note: seawater also contains other dissolved solids; salt represents about 77% of the Total Dissolved Solids)

  • Some salt is one the surface, the dried-up residue of ancient seas like the famed in Utah

  • Salt even arrives on earth from outer space in and its presence on the planet makes scientists think life may exist there (in fact, scientists speculate that live in underground water on Mars -- as they have )

  • Conversely, surface salt depositions and man-made saltworks can be seen from space

  • Table salt consists of tightly through ionic bonding ( ) of the sodium and chloride ions

  • Many online science pages offer instruction on growing salt crystals ( )

  • Other graphics of salt crystals are also available online ( )

  • And salt crystals have been photographed under a microscope ( ) Different types of crystal have different uses, as

    Wieliczka Salt Mine
    Information about air pollution within the mine, and attempts to stop it.

  • Air Pollutant Intrusion into the Wieliczka Salt Mine The Wieliczka Salt Mine, located in southern Poland near the city of Krakow, has been worked as a source of rock salt since the late 13th century

  • Over the centuries, miners have established a tradition of carving sculptures out of the native rock salt

  • Today, many of the salt sculptures are slowly dissolving

  • Water vapor present in the ventilation air in the mine is being absorbed into the rock salt at several locations in the mine, causing erosion of the carved salt surfaces

  • One question faced by the study team is whether or not there is any significant soiling or chemical attack on the statuary that might alter the hygroscopic character of the salt

  • Rock salt develops a liquid film on its surface and begins to dissolve when the relative humidity of the surrounding air reaches approximately 75%

  • Airborne ionic substances (e.g., nitrates) having relative humidities of deliquescence below that of rock salt could deposit onto the sculptures to an extent that the deliquescence point of the salt surface is lowered

  • The purpose of our current research is to examine the transport of air pollutants from the outdoor atmosphere into the mine, and the subsequent deposition of those pollutants onto the surfaces in the mine, with an eye toward determining whether or not the deliquescence point of the salt would be significantly affected by the pollutant deposition processes

  • Table salt is made by driving water into a salt deposit (in a mine)

  • The salt is then refined

  • Kosher salt is made in a similar fashion except the brine is raked continually during the evaporation process

  • Sea salt is evaporated sea water

  • All salts are nutritionally the same

  • Sea salt has trace amounts of minerals not found in mined salt

  • Black salt named Kala Namak in India, is really a blend of minerals characterized by a strong sulfur odor

    Tortoise - Post-Rock
    Article about the group and full discography. [English/Italian]

  • Si è già detto di "Djed", "manifesto" del sound ambizioso e cervellotico dei Tortoise ma anche dell'eccentrismo che pervade le loro piéce (sconcertante, ad esempio, l'effetto del rumore del cd che "salta" la traccia, ma anche il continuo ricorso a timbriche irregolari)

  • In tal senso è musica tranquilla, non tanto per la quiete dei toni scelti (anzi il brano conclusivo "Salt The Skies" è trascinato da un riff quasi ), quanto perché è incapace di stupire o disturbare l’ascoltatore, puntando invece a rassicurarlo

  • L’ultimo pezzo, "Salt The Skies", inizia in maniera placida, ma si trasforma in breve in un tirato rimescolato in salsa kraut, come a dire" beh, le abbiamo provate tutte"
