Chlorine and SodiumScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
A scientist gives you two jars: one is filled with the poisonous gas of chlorine, and the other filled with the dangerously reactive element called sodium. He will pay you 5 million dollars if you ingest both jars. How do you do it without killing yourself?
HintYou do not take both of them straight. Think of the scientific name of something you eat every day.
AnswerEasy. You pour the contents of both jars together in a heated chamber, heat the chamber to 5000 degrees Fahrenheit, and VOILA the two elements combine to give you sodium chloride. Otherwise known as table salt.
