Hello again, and welcome to this next video in our series
on memorizing the first 20 elements of the periodic table.
We’ll keep on cruising,
but always focus on picturing each of these images in your head.
Don’t try and magically remember everything like you used to do,
just create a clear mental image of each picture
and then let your amazing memory do the rest.
Alright, it’s GO time!
The fifth element was Boron,
which you recall by imagining a bee starting to bore on the balloon with its stinger.
The 6th element is Carbon, which sounds like “car bomb”.
This is going to be an interesting one.
After the balloon has been drilled or “bored on” by the bee,
imagine the balloon suddenly explodes.
Because the balloon is holding up the hydrant,
the hydrant plummets out of the sky and lands on an army jeep.
Visualize in your head what this would look like.
As the hydrant is quite heavy and it has fallen from a great height,
it makes an enormous “bang” as it smashes into the jeep.
Bits of broken jeep go flying everywhere
and it shocks everyone walking by.
人们尖叫 “天啊 汽车爆炸了！”
People cry, “Oh my gosh, it’s a car bomb!”
When you imagine the shattered jeep in your mind,
you’ll think “car bomb” and relate that back to the 6th element, Carbon.
The 7th element on the periodic table is Nitrogen.
If we say Nitrogen slowly and break it up,
我们会得到“night row gen”
we get “night row gen”.
在这个例子中 “gen”是“general”（将军）的缩写 比如一个军队的将军
In this instance, we’ll say “gen” is short for general, like an army general.
Now, the general is the owner of the army jeep just crushed by the plummeting hydrant.
Fortunately, the jeep was empty at the time because the general who owns it was out night rowing.
He enjoys a bit of exercise on the river, usually in the hours of darkness.
Now visualize him rowing his rowboat at night.
Since he’s well known for night rowing,
部队中的其他人都叫他 “night row gen”（夜游将军）
the rest of the army calls him the “night row gen”.
When you imagine the “night row gen”,
you’ll obviously be reminded of the 7th element, Nitrogen.
Oxygen is the 8th element on the periodic table.
For Oxygen, picture an oxygen mask,
same as the type that falls out of the ceiling for an airplane emergency.
现在想象夜游将军 Nitrogen 划完了船
Now imagine the night row general, Nitrogen, finishing his rowing session.
It was a particularly intense and exhausting session and he can barely stand up.
He’s completely exhausted and crawls out of his rowboat and back on to land.
He needs to use an oxygen mask to get extra oxygen and air into his lungs to help him recover.
When you picture the “night row gen” gasping and sucking from that oxygen mask,
you’ll be reminded of the 8th element, Oxygen.
The 9th element is Fluorine.
Fluorine sounds similar to fluoride,
like fluoride toothpaste or the fluoride gel dentists put on your teeth.
The gel helps strengthen your teeth and it has an interesting taste and a weird texture as well,
because it’s like a paste that gets smeared onto your teeth.
Imagine now the oxygen mask the general has been sucking oxygen from
is now actually filled with fluoride gel.
Picture him sucking in oxygen and then suddenly getting a mouthful of fluoride gel.
All of his teeth are coated with it and he starts to spit it out.
When you imagine him getting that mouthful of fluoride,
you’ll be reminded of the 9th element, Fluorine.
The 10th element is Neon.
Neon is the chemical that goes into neon signs.
Neon signs are the incredibly bright and colorful signs you see lit up at night.
Imagine what Las Vegas looks like with all of those neon casino signs,
blinking on and off, flashing with really bright and colorful images.
Now imagine once the general spits the fluoride out of his mouth,
it’s made his teeth glow like neon.
Picture him speaking, and you can see his teeth are all glowing brightly with different colors–
蓝色 黄色 绿色和粉色
blue and yellow and green and pink.
当你想到这个 你会记得氖 第十号元素
When you visualize that, you’ll be reminded of Neon, the 10th element.
Alright, that’s the first 10 elements of the periodic table.
I’m sure you can remember them really easily,
but quickly revise your memory story by picturing it in your mind.
Here’s numbers 6 to 10.
The balloon explodes, the hydrant plummets to earth and lands on an army jeep with an enormous bang.
Everyone thinks there’s been a car bomb.
“Car bomb” sounds like Carbon.
Luckily, the jeep was empty as the general who drives it was out night rowing.
He’s the “night row gen” – Nitrogen.
The night row gen had a very intense rowing workout
and uses an oxygen mask to help him recover.
The oxygen mask makes you think of Oxygen.
Inside the oxygen mask was fluoride gel, reminding you of Fluorine.
The fluoride gel made the general’s teeth glow like a neon sign – Neon.
You’ve now memorized the first ten elements of the periodic table.
Too easy, right?
Keep on watching the rest of the series and you’ll know the first twenty elements in no time.
