Doing An Experiment

There are two extremes in doing an experiment. The Classic approach is to examine the literature, discuss with colleagues, take a few preliminary steps, then go step by step recording the results in your Lab notebook.

The second approach is to take that piece of shiny sodium and flush it down the toilet and run like hell. That way you get to see what really happens.

So if you want to, well say drain your sewer system, just toss that chunk of sodium and flush. Then you get to really see what happens.

Just a thought.

And for those Fine Arts majors who have not a clue of what I am saying try Wikipedia.
