This video is one part of a video experiment, which is one experiment of six that can be used to engage in thinking about "Like Dissolves Like" solubility. This series of six experiments involves permutations of mixing three liquids, using a powder to provide color so that the layers can be readily seen. Each of the six experiments is presented in three parts.

A knife is placed on a large sodium chloride crystal parallel to a cleavage plane. When the knife is tapped, the crystal breaks cleanly, creating two smaller crystals. When one of these crystals is tapped with the knife at an angle, it shatters, breaking along a cleavage plane rather than parallel to the knife blade.
