This is a solution of sodium silicate — metal salt has been added. 🧪 The salt partially dissolves in the water and the ions react to form a thin layer of insoluble cobalt silicate. This layer is semi-permeable and the concentrated salt solution inside the tube pushes outwards due to osmosis. This bursts the tube, releasing more salt solution and forming a new tube, and the process continues. #Chemistry ⚗️ . . . . #Science #Chem #Lab #facts #learning #didyouknow #themoreyouknow #wow #videooftheday #environment #satisfyingvideos
