My class never did anything this fun.
Gummy Bears, see, are made out of sugar. Sugar and … uh … gummy. Duh. Sugar and gummy and that’s it, bare; hence, gummy bears. It’s obvious. And potassium chlorate is made out of potassium and chlorate.
Still with me?
And potassium and chlorate are neither sugar nor gummy nor even sugar and gummy, and when they all meet it’s more or less like the Hatfields met the Capulets, or perhaps more like when the McCoys met the Montagues.
And that ain’t good, whether you’re a substrate or a … superstrate? Or even a tumbler, as our poor gummy bear sacrifice here appears to be.
So sad. As god is my witness, I thought gummy bears could climb.
