Tendency to absorb moisture) of glycols is purported to cause a drying effect on the nose, eyes, and throat. Some manufacturers have designed methods for creating superfine fog droplets solely from water without excessive wetting. , for their creation of an artificial fog that uses a mixture of Praxair oxygen, nitrogen, and steam.  Praxair also provided a special effects mixture of oxygen and nitrogen during the filming of Columbia Pictures' Spider-Man in 2002.  How can one keep the fog low to the ground?
The greater the extent of absorption of the X-ray light, the lighter the tissue will appear on the radiograph, enabling a physician to monitor the condition of the tissue. To enhance the ability to "see" the gastrointestinal tract, a barium sulfate suspension is ingested before X-rays are administered to trace a person's digestive tract. , does not transmit) X-rays, and thus barium sulfate provides a radiopaque contrasting medium. In other words, with the added barium sulfate, the lining of the stomach and the gastrointestinal tract will be coated with barium sulfate and will appear white on an X-ray.
Water molecules are readily incorporated within the pores and cavities. The zeolite structure consists of interlocking tetrahedrons of [SiO4] 4- and [A104] 5-. Each oxygen atom is shared by two tetrahedra. For charge balance, other metal ions are present in the cavities of the framework, typically monovalent or divalent ions such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and barium. The drying effect of calcium sulfate (dehydrated gypsum) occurs by chemical action, as the hemihydrate of calcium sulfate is created when the anhydrous calcium sulfate reacts with water: 1 2 CaSO4 d- H20 -4 2 CaSO4 9~H20.
