Fifty Sample Vials
Code: 50SAMPLEVIALS
Price: $38.21
Quantity in Basket: none
Fifty sample vials with stick on labels for the periodic table of the elements.

For when you know you'll have at least 50 elements in your collection.

 



Two Tablespoons of Bismuth Shot
Code: BISMUTH
Price: $14.91
Quantity in Basket: none
The 'Magnet in Mid-Air' project needs bismuth, and here it is. About two tablespoons of bismuth shot (the size of the BB's used in BB guns). This should easily be enough for the project, with some allowance for spillage and accidents. With care, you could get two projects out of this amount.

This makes a good sample for Bismuth in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



One Piece of Pyrolytic Graphite
Code: GRAPHITE1
Price: $5.71
Quantity in Basket: none
This amazing stuff will float in mid-air above four strong magnets. (See our Magnetism chapter).

Each piece is roughly 1 millimeter thick (thickness varies), 32 millimeters long, and 16 millimeters wide.

Great for the suspended magnet project as a replacement for bismuth, and essential for the levitating pyrolytic graphite project.

This makes a good sample for Carbon in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



One 50 mm Square of 3 mm Pyrolytic Graphite
Code: BIGGRAPHITE
Price: $55.17
Quantity in Basket: none
People have been asking for larger, thicker pieces of pyrolytic graphite. Here they are!

Each piece is roughly 3 millimeters thick (thickness varies a little), and 50 millimeters square. Great for the suspended magnet project as a replacement for bismuth, and real fun to cut ice cubes with (it is an extremely good thermal conductor -- better than copper by far).

This makes a good sample for Carbon in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



1N34A Germanium Diode
Code: 1N34ADIODE
Price: $0.84
Quantity in Basket: none
For use in the Crystal Radio projects

Also, this is a good example of Germanium for your collection of samples in the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



Solar Cell
Code: SOLARCELL
Price: $2.86
Quantity in Basket: none
Tiny Silicon Solar Cell For the laser communicator, or for powering the three penny radio. (You will want three for the radio.)

This tiny solar cell is 2 centimeters on a side.

They can be soldered, but we find it easiest to use transparent tape to stick wires onto the cell.

This makes a good sample for Silicon in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



Electrodes
Code: ELECTRODES
Price: $6.00
Quantity in Basket: none
One 4 inch strip of aluminum , one three inch strip of zinc, and one three inch strip of copper.

Excellent for making lemon or potato batteries, Coca-Cola batteries, or as items in your collection of elements of the periodic table.

These make good samples for Aluminum, Zinc, and Copper in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



Kryptonite
Code: KRYPTONITE
Price: $4.17
Quantity in Basket: none
Kryptonite is the longest lasting phosphorescent material available. It glows all night (over 12 hours) after charging in the sun for only an hour or two.

These tiny vials (about an inch high and half an inch in diameter) contain enough Kryptonite to read maps at night, or books under the covers.

No evil genius should be without a protective vial of Kryptonite! Keep one of these in your pocket, and Superman will keep his big "S" out of your business!

This makes a good sample for Strontium, Europium, or Dysprosium in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



Tiny Bead Magnet
Code: BEADMAGNET
Price: $0.82
Quantity in Basket: none
These tiny magnets are made of the same alloy of Neodymium, Iron, and Boron as our 12mm cube magnets.

These are small beads that string nicely on copper wire for the Curie Effect Heat Engine. They are also used in our Ring Launcher and Zip Rod projects.

They are plated in gold to seal the sensitive alloy from moisture. They are 3 millimeters in diameter, 2 millimeters high, and have a 1 millimeter hole in the center.

This makes a good sample for Gold, Neodymium, or Boron in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



One 2 mm cube magnet
Code: ONE2MMCUBE
Price: $0.78
Quantity in Basket: none
These tiny magnets are made of the same alloy of Neodymium, Iron, and Boron as our 12mm cube magnets.

These are small magnets for use as the floating magnet in the Magnet in Mid-air project, or in the Curie Effect Heat Engine.

They are plated in gold to seal the sensitive alloy from moisture. They are 2 millimeter cubes.

This makes a good sample for Gold, Neodymium, or Boron in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

CAUTION: Neodymium magnets are so powerful that they will break if allowed to jump together. Work with them on a steel surface to prevent jumping.

 



Five small disk magnets
Code: NEO5PACK
Price: $17.37
Quantity in Basket: none
These very small but powerful magnets are made of the same alloy of Neodymium, Iron, and Boron as our 12mm cube magnets.

These are small magnets for use as the floating magnet in the Magnet in Mid-air project, or in the Curie Effect Heat Engine.

They are plated in gold to seal the sensitive alloy from moisture. They are 6 millimeters in diameter, and 2 millimeters thick.

This makes a good sample for Gold, Neodymium, or Boron in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements.

 



One Nickel Plated Steel Ball
Code: STEELBALL
Price: $1.52
Quantity in Basket: none
Nickel plated 5/8ths inch steel ball for the Gauss Rifle.

This makes an OK sample for Nickel in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements, but it won't fit in the little sample bottle.

 



Magnet wire
Code: MAGNETWIRE
Price: $8.73
Quantity in Basket: none
Sixty feet of 22 gauge polyurethane coated copper wire. The green insulation is easy to distinguish from the bare copper, so it is easy to scrape off just the right amount when building the Simple Motor project.

Also great for winding the antenna coil of the Portable Crystal Radio, and the perfect length for an antenna for the Simple Crystal Radio project.

This makes a good sample for Copper in your collection of samples for the Periodic Table of the Elements, especially if you sand off the insulation.

 



Diffraction Grating Film
Code: DIFFRACTION
Price: $3.16
Quantity in Basket: none
High efficiency holographic diffraction grating film. This is the good stuff!

Great for making spectrographs, or taking photos with rainbows around every bright spot in the image.

A six inch square of it, so the whole class can make spectrographs.

With this film, you can see the bright line spectra of gases like Neon in your collection of the Periodic Table of the Elements.
