Vitz, Ed
Journal of Chemical Education, v85 n10 p1385-1388 Oct 2008
A series of demonstrations is described that elucidate the operation of commercial fog machines by using common laboratory equipment and supplies. The formation of fogs, or "mixing clouds", is discussed in terms of the phase diagram for water and other chemical principles. The demonstrations can be adapted for presentation suitable for elementary through tertiary levels. (Contains 1 figure and 7 notes.)
