The first thing to realise is that paint is a chemical process.
The ingredients in paint are chemicals called organic acids.
It’s this chemical reaction that gives paint its distinctive red, green, blue and yellow colour and gives it its distinctive texture.
These chemicals combine to create what’s known as a “fusion”.
When you mix two organic acids together, the result is a new compound.
The two compounds are known as an ionic acid and an alkali.
The chemistry behind paint is so complex, in fact, that even a chemistry degree will have little effect on the properties of the final product.
The basic chemistry of paint is this: The chemistry of a paint molecule is a combination of a molecule’s chemical structure with the chemical reaction it creates.
The key to this chemistry is the bond between the hydrogen atom in the molecule and a group of electrons called a hydroxyl group.
Hydroxyl groups are used to form bonds between molecules.
They’re important because they can be broken down into hydrogen and oxygen.
The chemical structure of a water molecule is more complex, and has two hydrogen atoms and a hydrogen and an oxygen atom.
The hydrogen atoms are attached to the oxygen atom, so it can be separated from the oxygen.
Water is a liquid, so the two hydrogen and one oxygen atoms combine to form a water atom.
When water molecules are broken down, the hydrogen and the oxygen atoms become water.
The reaction is so simple that, until very recently, scientists didn’t know how to combine the two elements.
That’s what happened to a group known as the trivalent hydrogen bond, which is what gives water its unique colour.
“The problem was that we couldn’t tell if it was a trivalence or a neutral hydrogen bond because we didn’t have a good way to measure the amount of the trivahedral hydrogen bonds,” says Dr Rachael Williams, a chemistry lecturer at Durham University.
She explains: “We don’t know what the concentration of the hydrogen is in a molecule, and we didn´t know how many hydrogen bonds it would have, so we didnt know what kind of bonding it was.”
It turns out that, in addition to the chemistry, there’s a chemical signature that helps paint people distinguish between a trivahedron and a pentahedron.
A trivalency bond has two water atoms and two hydrogen.
A pentahedral bond has one hydrogen atom and one water atom, but no hydrogen bonds.
A hexahedral or pentagonal bond has three water atoms, two hydrogen, one oxygen and one hydrogen and a nitrogen atom.
Dr Williams says that by mixing the ingredients in a paint tank, you can create a paint that looks a lot like your kitchen table.
“It looks like a very clean, flat table with the paint really being in between,” she says.
“You can see that you can see the water molecule there.”
She says that the chemistry of water paint is very similar to the chemical structure that makes up glass.
“Water molecules are very good at making bonds with other water molecules,” she explains.
So when you paint water, you are creating more complex chemistry, so that’s what makes the water look so clean.”
