    1) Title of Book: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test 2) Author: Tom Wolfe 3) The grounds on which Thomas Wolfe created this documentation of the Merry Pranksters is that he attempts to re-create both the mental and physical atmosphere of their adventure and exploration across America. 4) Specific evidence in supporting the aforementioned thesis can be found in the “Author’s Note” section of the book but also in the writing style used to develop this masterpiece. Writing in a basic journal style, Wolfe

    hypochlorite ions (OCl-) and hypochlorous acid (HOCl). However sunlight causes drastic decomposition of these chemicals, thus methods to protect chlorine from sunlight have been created for pools. Some of these include pool covers, or chemical stabilisers which combine with the free hypochlorite ions to reduce decomposition. The most common stabiliser is isocyanuric acid ((CONH)3), added until a concentration of 50mg/L is reached. An experiment was devised to test whether the pool cover or the stabiliser

  • The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and Takin' it to the Streets as Drug-influenced Literature

    1998 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and Takin' it to the Streets as Drug-influenced Literature Art influenced by drugs faces a unique challenge from the mainstream: prove its legitimacy despite its "tainted" origins. The established judges of culture tend to look down upon drug-related art and artists, as though it is the drug and not the artist that is doing the creating. This conflict, less intense but still with us today, has its foundations in the 1960s. As the Beatnik, Hippie, and psychedelic

  • A Comparative Analysis of Armies of the Night and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test in Regards to New Journalism

    2194 Words  | 5 Pages

    Night and Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test may seem very similar. They are both centered on a major author of the 1960s and his experiencing of historical events of the time, while set in the style of New Journalism. When examined closer, though, it becomes apparent that these novels represent two very different sides of New Journalism – Armies of the Night an autobiography with personal and political motivations, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test a sociological piece which tries to capture

    Intellectuals, Harper & Row, Publishers, Inc. First Perennial Library edition published 1990, 385pp. In terms of quality of writing itself, Johnson’s Intellectuals makes for entertaining historical dream. The British author’s intent is to put to test several of the ‘intellectuals’ who exerted cultural and social influence during the Enlightenment period forward to our own time. Johnson writes, “One of the most marked characteristics of the new secular intellectuals was the relish with which they

  • Liberals LOVE Gun Control

    1123 Words  | 3 Pages

    Liberals Love Gun Control Gun Control can be called the 'acid test' of liberalism. All true liberals must favor stricter gun controls. After all, doesn't the United States have the most heavily armed population on the earth? Are we not the world's most violent people? Surely these facts must be at least casually connected. Therefore the apparently desperate need to "do something" about the vast quantity of firearms and firearms abuse is obvious. Guns are employed in an

In Hindu philosophy realisation of the truth comes after going through the acid test of illusion or 'maya'.* I would add that the ability to perceive 'reality' is the end product of experience. Followers of Lord Krishna regard humans as souls composed of Krishna's highest energy, with bodies of 'maya,' his lowest, material, and illusory

    The Effect of the Concentration of Hydrochloric Acid on the Amount of Hydrogen AIM === I want to find out how the concentration of Hydrochloric acid affects the amount of hydrogen or the time it takes to produce 30cm3 of gas, when the Hydrochloric acid reacts with the magnesium powder. Prediction ========== I predict that the amount of hydrogen in the measuring cylinder will increase as the concentration increases; this is because if there is more concentration there shall be

    Preparing Benzoic Acid from Benzylalcohol Planning (a) Problem The aim of this experiment is to synthesize benzioc acid, with the highest possible yield, by oxidizing benzylalcohol. Hypothesis We expect the percentage yield to be about 50% due to several processes such as cooling and filtering. Possible Variables - Time - Temperature (of water) - Filter Planning (b) Apparatus/ Materials - Round bottomed flask under reflux - benzylalcohol - HCl - Na2O4

    color transformation. Methyl Red: One can identify an organism’s ability to conduct the mixed acid fermentation of glucose in a positive test. The fermentation of glucose will lower the pH to less than 5 by overcoming the phosphate buffer that is in the medium6. The lowered pH will allow the indicator, methyl red, to turn the medium red. Voges Proskauer: An organism that is positive for the VP test would indicate that it is capable of the 2, 3 butandiol and the fermentation of glucose. The reagent

    qualities. A lot of the things that human being eat and drink have different pH levels, which is why it is so important for humans to be knowledgeable on the difference between acids and bases to be able to balance the pH levels in their bodies to remain healthy. For one to determine whether or not a substance is an acid or a base, they first must know the types of ions the substance contains. Due to how wide the range is from a very acidic solution to a very basic solution scientists created a scale

    I collected an unknown sample (sample A) and performed a series of tests and analyses to determine the chemical composition of the unknown. One of our learning goals was to practice performing the basics of analyzing an unknown; this entails measuring boiling point, melting point, and noting its physical properties (color, smell, etc.) In addition to this, we also practiced reading basic spectra, looking at and interpreting test results, synthesizing derivatives of our unknown, and testing the melting

    Does Concentrated Acid or Diluted Acid React Faster? Plan I am going to carry out a reaction between Magnesium ribbon and Hydrochloric acid. The aim of this investigation is to work out which reacts faster, concentrated acid or diluted acid. I will judge if the reaction is fast or slow by observing the bubbles which occur during the reaction and also observe if the Magnesium has disappeared. Only the concentration of the acid will be changed - the Magnesium is a solid. Magnesium +
