Hank: I assume you're here because you're interested in Biology Me: I have a test tomorrow Like if you're cramming for a test

I haven’t studied for the bio state exams all year and now that they’re tomorrow, I’m cramming. Thank god for this channel

Everyone thinks that he was more edgy back then, and possibly drank a little more... More in reality they just upload his videos at 1.25 now, which if you do to this video sounds the same as normal hank... haha

Mr. Green Mr. Green!! I have a question. Do covalent bond always have to end in the rule of 8's what if they only have 6 electrons by the end a reaction?????

"Even the sexiest person you have ever met in your life is just a collection of organic compounds rambling around in a sack of water." I don't know about you, but thinking about that statement gives me tremendously less anxiety when conversing with people I find attractive

A summary! Video One: Carbon  Carbon has 6 neutrons, 6 protons and 6 electrons.  Octet Rule – atoms need 8 electrons in outermost shell to be stable.  Carbon needs 4 electrons to fill its outer shell – can therefore create four bonds.  Halogens are elements that only need one electron to fulfil their octet.  Alkali metals only have one electron in their octet.  Covalent bonding: atoms share electrons with each other to become stable.  Ionic bonding: atoms donate/accept electrons permanently to become stable – they become ions (i.e. positively or negatively charged atoms). Atoms prefer to remain neutral but will become an ion if it means satisfying their outer shells.  Polar charges are when there’s a positive and negative pole driven by the sharing of electrons.  Hydrogen bonding: a relatively weak bond between molecules (e.g. H2O molecules) due to the polar charges, where the positive and negative poles of each molecule are attracted to one another.  Lewis Dot Structures show how molecules are bonded together.

this is so fun! I have exam in biology in one week and I don't understand anything and think biology sucks, but I think you changed my mind :D Cant wait to watch all of them, but I wish English was my native language because the words and and some of the names are different in Norwegian.

Why is an atom in with 0 electrons charged. What makes an atom charged
doodle ji (1 month ago)
if an atom has more protons than its electrons, it is positively charged. If an atom has more electrons than its protons, it is negatively charged.

I always forget this video starts with Hank invalidating my asexuality...
Nathanael Maldoror (1 month ago)
I am a bit confused... In my VR Chem lab game/lesson... it shows a very different amount of electrons within each shell. Admittingly, it's a 3D model with alternate spherical and oblonged sphereical like 'shells', so it's a bit more complex (and acording to the program, the most accurate representation science can think up. Obviously nobody can get it 100% right since it's too small too see.) But I just wanted to know how and why the two types of models are different, and if one or the other is more correct.
handsome Squidward (1 month ago)
Yes that's Schrodinger's model which is the more correct one. Although still not perfect its the most accurate model we have since it's probably impossible to get a perfect model of an atom. The atom model used in the video is the Bohr model which isn't as accurate but it's much easier to remember and imagine, which is why it's more well known and taught.

David Schmidt (1 month ago)
I seriously wish you would not make jokes involving words like 'hussy', 'tramp' and 'sex' or use (and in this case OVER-use) the sexy/cute little drawings in vids that have little to do with it. I use some of your vids for my middle school classes, and although the word 'sex' is nothing 'bad' in itself, and indeed represents a fundamentally necessary operation when speaking of Biology, one must keep in mind the 'filters' that info passes through with students. By the time they get home, a vid with that word in it so frequently becomes a vid ABOUT it and problems may ensue. If you want to actually consider yourself a teacher, please keep that kind of thing in mind. If you are simply an individual knowledgeable abut a topic and are posting a vid about it, (e.g. a professional biologist or chemist) that's fine, and enjoyable to adults who understand the context of those words and the joking nature of their relation to the topic.But to "package" these as suitable for younger audiences without being 'clean' is asking for problems. Plus, although I know you will not change this, you speak FAR too quickly in your videos. I, and several other teachers I know of who use your vids, always slow the playback speed to 75%, It makes you sound slightly inebriated, but it makes your speech easier to understand. Cheers!

If you're wondering, this is how the most revolutionary course in biology of all time begins. Come and learn about covalent, ionic, and hydrogen bonds. What about electron orbitals, the octet rule, and what does it all have to do with a mad man named Gilbert Lewis? It's all contained within.
