Science is Magic by RegolithX Science is Magic by RegolithX
- A painfully simple wallpaper for all you science buffs out there.
-- If any of you were wondering as to what I do in college, I'm actually a chemistry major. I love the subject and it continues to fascinate me. I don't have much time at the moment for "complex" art and so I'm restricted to simpler projects, but I still try to place meaning behind each one. Each of the Mane-six is assigned an atomic number with certain meaning behind it. The meanings are as follows.

Honesty (Applejack) = 1 (Hydrogen) - "Hard-working Hydrogen" is commonly shared in many atomic and organic compounds, and is found almost everywhere in nature.

Loyalty (Rainbow Dash) = 15 (Phosphorus) - Phosphorus is a volatile element, and is very reactive. It also comes in many different colors.

Generosity (Rarity) = 6 (Carbon) - Diamonds are made from Carbon which has been subjected to extreme heat and pressure for long periods of time.

Magic (Twilight) = 42 (Molybdenum) - Twilight assigned racing number in "Fall Weather Friends" was 42. Molybdenum has one of the highest melting points in the periodic table (6th highest)

Kindness (Fluttershy) = 79 (Gold) - Heart of gold. Need I say more?

Laughter (Pinkie Pie) = 118 (Ununoctium) - One of the most unstable elements on the periodic table.

For those who are curious, the numbers to the right of the cutie marks going down vertically are the number of electrons in each "Shell" of the atom starting closest to the nucleus and expanding outwards. The large picture of the atom to the left of the elements demonstrates what these shells can "theoretically" look like.... without the jewels of course.

I don't realy know the periodic table that well, is the number at the bottom the elements atomic number thingy?

The numbers at the bottom with the decimal places are the "Atomic Weights" of the atoms. The ones at the top are the "Atomic Numbers". The atomic number is the number of protons included in the atom, while the atomic weight is the mass of the atom based on a Carbon-12 scale.

Thank you... Now whats a carbon-12 scale? XD

:iconregolithx:
RegolithX Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
One Atomic Mass unit (AMU) is considered to be 1/12 of the mass of a Carbon-12 atom.

Carbon-'12' just means that it is a carbon atom with 12 neutrons.

Therefore one Hydrogen atom with an atomic mass of ~1.01 is equal to 1.01 AMU's.

Not exactly the easiest subject, but it's one I actually enjoy.

Wait till you get to O-chem/Analytical Chem. and "Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy".

I like science too, I'm sure if I learn more about it I'll figure it out. I'm only in grade 9 and the words "atomic mass" I've only seen once and they weren't described. But yet again, Thank You.

this is great!... But now honesty has become the most common element in the universe, you turned molybdenum into an imaginary magnesium with a high atomic mass, too many electrons and called it "magic". and not only is laughter synthetic but it is the only group 18 element that isn't noble!???!
so now 1 loyalty + 3 honesty = LyHn3 (gas) colorless flammable and toxic and will spontaneously ignite in air
and magic makes up a key part of cathode ray tubes…

When I looked at this thing, I thought: Gosh, the atomic symbols are nonsense! I understand why you put em like that. The only explanation is that in equestria, their symbols are different from here...

The 7th element is Power, combine all 6 elements into one and you get the element of power. Be serious.
