    Chemical engineering.

    Hello again, and, welcome to my guide to chemical engineering! This is not the biggest field you can study for, but, as far as studies go, it is amongst the most interesting. This is where you will basically learn everything liquid and gas based in the world, from how to mix a knock out gas or that stuff that puts you out while people operate on you, to how to mix petrol into oil or even mix real medicine and food preservatives and stuff. That is the practical applications, and, while I don't think there is much room in these fields for 'fun,' other than it being where you get to fool around with nearly all those chemicals or elements on that table, in various mixtures and stuff, it still is a lot of fun to study and become a chemist or something, a nice paying job if you will.

    So, what is chemical engineering about? It is about mixing chemicals! This is where you learn how chemicals work and to a point a bit of physics too, mind you. It is also about anions and cations, polar opposites that attract things or acidify them - yes it is basically how quickly things dissolve or mix to form new things. This is also where the natural phenomenon is observed regarding effects on natural tissue, so it is a bit like medicine too.

    ~ Remember in medicine you study chemistry, physiology, biology and physics, basically.

    Now, to properly understand all these things, the most important thing to understand is acidity measures how quickly - yes that stuff you learned in high school - things dissolve and become one with the mixture. This is usually down to a greater density or mass of liquid or gas mixing with a lesser mass of liquid or gas to dilute itself into a mixture that gives of both parts. For example, if you were to mix oil with liquid gold, the gold would dissolve the oil and the greater mass would prevail, not the greater amount, of course.

    Plastics.

    This is commonly, in the field, referred to as "polymers," but let's call it "plastics?" Basically, this is where the naturally occurring strands get boiled to mix together tighter and sometimes lose their colour too. How they form is through naturally occurring strands of 'd.n.a,' or molecules, groups of atoms, where the gluons are tightly packed to produce a new stronger more supple or flexible product.

    ~ It is stronger and more flexible because it is more tightly packed, so anything 'man made' would be bendable from a natural product, take gold, that bends! Then there is nitrogen four, which does not bend, obviously not enough carbon in the mixture, yes? Carbon is the building block of life I have always believed - look at trees eating carbon dioxide, and, water having no carbon - this is where the carbon, is the life and water is the source of life.

    So, it bends because it can handle stress, which means each point of stress shares, through a tight bonding process, a network or 'delta' of stress points related to that point being bent, of course. This means that it is a natural material that would occur if the world would give it the time, through ageing and mixing and bonding. They say a water molecule is lost when plastics are made, so, that is the two water molecules leaving the material yet the other half or other two remain behind to give it the bendable characteristics it has, yes? Water is flexible, but carbon mixed with something is also flexible, as carbon is structure, and, other gases give low mass and therefore, trapped inside the molecule, would give greater flexibility through reduced density.

    Now, the chemical formulas often outnumber the carbon atoms with other atoms, so you might think that carbon is not that important, yet carbon is much heavier than gases. Please remember that when observing your strands or studies of these elements - remember the weights and how they affect the mixture through their influence and mass.

    Battery chemistry.

    This is becoming more important as we move towards electric cars dominating the markets and therefore the roads. If we were to observe that these batteries keep the charges that the get until used, there are several things to understand with 'batteries.'

    One of the things to understand is that obviously the negative charges attract the 'positive protons,' which are mass and fill the battery with something when it is being depleted. Then, there is a negative charge, like 'something acidic,' where the battery will eat away at the mass and give reactions. This is typical of a battery being used, that they become negative like electrons and anions and move the charge from the battery outwards to enact affects, like electromagnetism, where mass and energy are provided, of course.

    If the battery needs to be recharged, it needs to have cations inside of it to attract electrons, or, protons to attract electrons. This will be where the stuff that gives mass, or, dissolves, attracts the stuff that dos the dissolving or mixing, due to instability, or, 'loose orbitals,' yes?

    ~ A loose orbital is like a free electron, as, an orbital is 'the pushing force of nature,' where the actual mixing of mass, liquids and gases are founded from, of course. So, we could say that all motion, friction and electromagnetism, is a by product of orbitals and electrons, due to their 'loose extra electrons that seek to bond with other things, like fire.'

    Crystallization.

    This is where we take something and form a solid out of it, where it was a gas becoming a liquid to a solid or a liquid to a solid, of course. This is fairly easy at tiny scales, but it is hard to do with bigger things, where the objective is to make something like a metal, which is what I am trying to do - make conveyor belted metals, okay?

    So, if it comes to be that liquids and gases form solids, it is due to condensation. Let's observe grease? Grease forms where the gases collect to condense and form liquids like water vapour or something watery, and, then 'rot further' to form grease. So, I am saying grease is rotten water or biomass, okay? Let's see if we can justify this...

    If you were to have a lot of 'watery stuff' on the rim of a pot, it will take on more carbons as it is getting denser, and, will attract protons to them as they are hot. Opposites attract. This means that hot water will attract protons, as, the protons are the 'massive side' of the atom, and, give mass to the atom. That said, the atom will grow, in the form of a liquid that is rotting, as, heat is radiation, and, as with cheese, exposure to heat makes it rot, yes? SO, grease is rotten water, rust must be rotten metal...

    So, if we were to observe that the crystallization process is where the mixture takes on more mass, where something like hydrogen would become something like oxygen due to gained mass, then it is safe to say everything is mass! Everything is mass, because, the only difference between atoms is the mass and so forth - there is no other defining factor, they just operate differently and give off different effects because they slot into different massive sizes and mixtures, of course.

    Maybe if the mixture was to contain enough mass, where we could make iron cheaply and quickly, by adding mass to the mixture, we could take sea water and make that into metals? This would be down to beating the boiling point with timing, so that the water does not evaporate completely, and then condensing it before it does! Sounds impossible to me too...

    Okay, as a wild aside, let's try to make sand into iron, there is plenty of that? This would be where we would want to make the mass more, for each 'molecule,' and that means packing it denser, of course. That is what diamonds are, wood, made denser to become coal, made denser to become diamonds, of course.

    So, we want to take the sand and 'melt' it. This will give a sandstone sort of thing, so, we need to make the sand gain mass in each grain, yes? This means to make it hotter and hotter, losing the silicone and keeping the quartz, where 'the quartz is the metal component,' yes? This would leave metal, of course, as the silicone would dissolve and leave the quartz for the bonding process, of course. This sounds cheap and quick.

    Turning magnesium into iron or steel.

    Okay, we have just produced some quartz, that can be converted into magnesium rather easily, and, that still leaves room for upgrading to iron and steel, yes? This would mean we would have to simply set two positive ion generators 'on either side of the metals,' and then see them 'compress.' This will lead, as with polymers, to a stronger metal, of course.

    But those are not the nice qualities of iron, what else could we do?

    Also, the lattices that define the density of the metal can be altered by 'observation and tests.' This would mean that we could simply increase pressure and shape of the ion generators, and, find new ways the magnesium will set. This would lead to a event that would see the lattices disrupted while they set again, setting in motion settings of magnesium under that coating or surface, and, then the rearrangement of the whole bond.

    Of course, if there was to be a observation, there could be stronger or better metals produced too.

    Crafting diamonds and gold.

    Well, it seems we can now manufacture steel cheaply and quickly, let's try to make some 'diamonds?' These are used a lot in electronics and other gadgets and would be well serve to be crafted by ourselves, yes?

    Diamonds are nearly all carbon, I think? Like with plastics, we could make these things by compressing the carbons, and, that can be done with ion generators around the carbon, pushing it closer and packing it tighter.

    In nature, the wood becomes coal becomes oil or diamonds. Sometimes, with a low pressure, it becomes oil, yes? This is liquid coal, and, further compressed high pressure coal becomes diamonds - there is no hocus pocus to this, it is simply 'tightly packed carbon coal.' This comes from being far under the earth and then being in the right spot, where if it was high up or in the wrong spot, it would be oil.

    ~ Remember, oil can be made by using wood to become burned to coal ans then burned again to become oil. It is safe therefore to say that oil is expired wood, like wine from grapes...

    So, to make the diamonds, we should take coal and 'make it denser.' This can be done like with plastics, or, where there are extra gases and liquid molecules, we could lose these with 'heating,' and therefore 'boil' our way to diamonds from coal. I would suppose that coal would become a gas if it were just burned or heated, so, we need to also use magnets, which cool the structure, to produce the diamonds? We could use sand for this too, maybe, maybe even producing something more useful altogether, maybe with the quartz?

    With gold, we could observe that there are already methods to make gold discovered in Russia. These prove to be too costly though, so, will not make it into main stream production any time soon.

    So, if we observe that gold is 'a flexible metal,' with a shine and radiation retention of quite high amounts, where the 'conductivity is given due to it's metallic structure,' we could reproduce the gold with the methods of lessening the density in the form of strength, but, adding to the mass. Gold is heavy, yet it is flexible... like plastic, once more!

    If we were to observe that we might be able to make gold by taking 'rock' and gaining the shine by observing how ivory works? Ivory shines because it is polished and cut away, leaving a new layer, yes? So, how do we polish rocks? I would assume that we could mix lithium with steel to produce something similar? This would give the shine and conductivity required, of course.

    More on gold and platinum.

    Gold has properties of being a conductor and a reflector. This means that we also need it not to corrode. This means less carbon, of course. What does not corrode - gases! Gases do not corrode, so, we would need to use some helium and then some nitrogen, to become gold, let's look at combinations of elements to arrive at gold, mass wise?

    Gold has a periodic number of 79 and has a mass of 196. This means that helium overlapped 98 times should result in gold, yes? Or, hydrogen 196 times, or, a combination of the two?

    With Platinum it should be 195 times, and with other precious metals combinations of these, of course.
