Abstract
The subject of the English mastery of this paper is bubbles. Through different types of mediums, the chemical composition of a bubble will be discovered. This will be combined with the evaluation of a bubble as a metaphor for and ancient society and for me. For the chemical composition of the bubble the evidence has been found and put into the References portion of the master. The physical and symbolic metaphor of the bubble through history is also told in the References. The last comparison between the bubble and I was performed when observing them during English class. Chemical Composition and description

The molecular formula for the composition of a bubble is 2 CH3(CH2)16CO2-Na+ + Mg2+ ----> (CH3(CH2)16CO2-)Mg2+ + 2 Na+. This is the type of bubble that is made through soap. However, CH3(CH2)16CO2-Na+ + HCl ----> CH3(CH2)16CO2H + Na+ + Cl- is made when fats and proteins are boiled Therefore these bubbles are considered natural. There are many unique characteristics of a bubble. Bubbles are one of the few perfectly round occurrences in nature, also being translucent. Combined with a soapy structure, the weightlessness of the bubble allows it to float through the air. Although this weightlessness also forces the bubble to be very delicate and fragile and may pop with either a slight touch or even the wind. Almost like a snowflake, all bubbles are different. Some are large, small, delicate, is more durable, and some bubbles even connect to one another. Free Hand Drawing
