In this exciting demonstration lecture, Dr Peter Wothers explores the different properties and reactions of the gases that make up our atmosphere. What is ozone and how can it both poison and protect us? Why is carbon dioxide a greenhouse gas? Why is nitrogen gas so unreactive?
With demonstrations including indoor lightning, exploding airbags and the famous rice crispie inferno, and an explanation of some of the science behind global warming, this lecture is sure to educate as well as entertain!
