Quick Question...

Post # 1
It's about Alchemy. Now, what I want to know is a couple things. Number one: Is it like I have seen on Resources? Like with all Transmutation Circles, and you put the Item in the middle and it somehow develops into something else? And Number Two: If so HOW do you acquire the ability to use Alchemy?

Um alchlmy as far as I know isn't like that. Idk but I'm still trying to figure how to turn lead into gold. The chemical fourmula for it is the same. Except for the 2nd to the last elemnt isn't sqaured and the last element is there at all. Idk is there anyway to remove an element from a rock?

you cant change anything into gold.

gold is its own element, its in the periodic table, thus nothing can be made to turn into it.

Not true. Gold can be made. There are scientist who have done it. Problem is, the gold is radioactive due to the process. So, get yourself some very expensive machinery and have at it.

In all respect luzifer I respectfully disagree modern science has allowed us to take a solid turn it to a liquad and bring it back. (A plant to a liquad to ice) I beilieve it just a matter time before technogly allows us to do that

I researched it, and technology HAS allowed us to turn lead into gold.

since gold has 79 protons and lead has 82, using nuclear transmutation, they knocked off 3 protons to turn it into gold.

but nothing like this is possible in the realm of alchemy.

Oh ok now that's believable. Ok thank you . Wait that makes the gold non usable. Ok ill ponder this for a while. Thanks luicifer

I have heard it is possible to make diamonds out of coal though the process is a bit hard to do. (I think though some people are annal enough to pull it off ;)

As for all the other things alchemy is a form of chemistry just as herbology is a form of chemistry. I suggest studying what you can on all subjects, it will help you to have a better understanding in all areas.

It doesn't turn radioactive, it's just way too expensive to do it..

Let's hear this from a very enthusiastic Chem Student!
Yes, it is possible to turn any element into other elements.
This is the Detailed Explanation of Luzifer's last post.
Now any person that's studied chemistry before knows that an atom is determined by the number of protons. Through Particle Accelerators, the latest one that has been built is the Large Hadron Collider, some of you may have heard last year in September how they said it may create a black hole as its first session of smashing atoms was commenced.
Using these Particle Accelerators, scientists have been able to obtain many different elements synthetically, which is why our Periodic Table of Elements is so large compared to the days of old-school alchemy. Theoretically, what they do to synthesize elements is shove extra protons (most important as it determines the element), extra electrons and extra neutrons, into a stable element's atom. By doing this, the new element usually becomes unstable. These new elements are so unstable that they only exist for a second.. maybe even less, and because they are so unstable, the new elements' atoms screw up, and the protons, electrons, neutrons rearrange themselves to simpler more stable elements.
Why not turn stuff into gold you may ask?
Well.. Pure gold isn't actually useful, as many pure metals are malleable (workable) thus, they can be deformed very easily. Yes, if you had 24 Carat gold ring, you could actually bend it.. which is why you only find alloys (metals with small amounts of other metals mixed) in 'gold' rings.
Second of all, firstly, it's expensive for the particle accelerators to be built.. and it's very expensive to operate them..

Kts, the process they use, is basically a ****load of heat and compression with machines, to recreate the natural conditions of the diamond making process. It is not hard to do, you just need to have the money to buy the machinery.

Diamonds are carbon atoms bonded in a Covalent Network. Since the covalent network never really ends.. and it only contains one type of element, there is no definite carbon atoms in a diamond.
Coal is also carbon compressed naturally, just not as long and not with the extreme compression needed with diamonds.
You could also create diamonds from pencils, because they use graphite.
Graphite is a carbon allotrope, which is just a formation of carbon atoms. C2(subscript) is Graphite.
Diamonds, Coal, Graphite are all still carbon atoms, they're just bonded differently.

I hope you have learned some chem knowledge today =]
If you need any high-school standard chemistry help, feel free to ask me =D

Thank you Sir for the over view. I love to see those with educated minds responding so informatively :)

Just so you know I was making a joke and referencing Farris Bueller's Day Off! :P
