The answer to your question depends on the size level (microscopic or not). But it sounds like you are referring to spheres at a size that you can hold, or larger. A hydrophilic sphere could simply be a sphere of some solid material (like plastic), coated with a layer of hydrophilic material/substance. This page on hydrophilic coatings has some ...

Here is a educational reference: '19.2 COORDINATION CHEMISTRY OF TRANSITION METALS, to quote: The coordination sphere consists of the central metal ion or atom plus its attached ligands. Brackets in a formula enclose the coordination sphere; species outside the brackets are not part of the coordination sphere. The coordination number of the central metal ...

There is a slight deviation in the literature as to what the hybrid composites are. Originally, materials were considered hybrid composites if both inorganic (e.g. clay/silicates as the hydrophilic component) and organic (e.g. organic polymer as the hydrophobic component) constituents were involved in building up the matrix (see e.g. a review [1]). Another ...

I'm not actually a chemist:), but I teach chemistry at a homeschool co op and do have a science background academically. I think what you might be missing in your thought process is clarifying between heat conductivity and change in energy. I was a bit confused on this too. As others have mentioned, heat conductivity is not correlated to specific heat. When ...
