Sodium Chloride

Author Comments

Made for a national animation competition run by the University of Manchester. The specifics were that it had to be less than a minute, and somehow related to the school cirriculum, hence the brevity and nerdiness of it.

It was also sloppily made in about a week after convincing myself to finish something for it, hence the general sloppiness of it. It's not really something I want to spend much more time on, so I may as well throw it out there else I'll just keep it locked up in the vaults forever.

It's nothing special, but do tell me what you think. Feel free to ask any chemistry-related questions--I AM your science teacher.

It would make more sense for the chlorine atom to be a pickpocket and for the sodium atom to catch it in the act of trying to steal an electron out of its pocket and grab its wrist and say "uh uh, not letting you get away with that". And then suddenly there's a flood, and in contact with water, the pickpocket gets away with the electron. That's if you wanted to be really painfully literal and accurate but eh. It also might have been funny if sodium's CRAAAAAZY brother cesium to come along and be like "I'm CRAAAAAAZY cesium, and I don't know WHAT to do with my electron, I want to get rid of it so badly, here bro, take my electron, this chlorine is MINE!" and cesium shoves its electron in sodium's hands and shoves sodium away and starts being all kissy kissy with the chlorine while the chlorine tries to get away. Of course it doesn't make sense for either one to try to get away from the other, since they should be attracted to each other.

The sodium atom looks too much like a walking meatball though. I was like "that's the sodium atom? Come on." Shouldn't it at least be a metallic color? Why is it meat colored? The chlorine can be yellow but the accuracy of that only makes sodium's strange choice of coloration even more noticeable. That was just weird.

But it's still pretty good. Kind of accurate in an abstract sort of way.

A good flash

Thumbs up for an intelligent flash on Newgrounds.

Hahaha, nice!

Voices were great, idea was just adorable, the way you played it out. 9/10 & 5/5


Knew it was coming. Knew it. Still liked it, though.

I ace'd chemistry, but you failed to amuse me.

Well this is an easy way to teach secondary (middle) school children what to expect in chemistry, but I don't see this flash efficiently going beyond that. You do get a higher rating for entertainment value, voices and quality.
