This black soot, also known as lampblack, gas black, channel black or carbon black, is used to make inks, paints and rubber products.
It can also be pressed into shapes and is used to form the cores of most dry cell batteries, among other things.
Naturally occurring graphite occurs in two forms, alpha and beta.
These two forms have identical physical properties but different crystal structures.
Note: At normal atmospheric pressure, carbon does not melt when heated, it sublimes. when heated, carbon undergoes a phase change directly from solid to gas.
If the pressure is increased to 10 atmospheres carbon (graphite) is observed to melt at 3550 °C.
We stick the garden hose in and turn it on full blast.
A graphene surface hosts an indium tin oxide nanoparticle, which helps secure two platinum nanoparticles (blue) for improved catalysis in a fuel cell.The barrel represents the earth's atmosphere in which the carbon-14 accumulates.The water leaking out the sides of the barrel represents the loss (mainly by radioactive decay) of the atmosphere's supply of carbon-14.This nullifies the carbon-14 method as well as demonstrating that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. One suspects that the scientific world would not be using the carbon-14 method if it were so obviously flawed.Could it be that the whole scientific community has missed this point, or is it another case of creationist daydreaming?
