This article introduce one of the events that took place in a chemistry class given to first semester students in the area of civil engineering , physics , mechatronics and renewable energies . During the exposition "states of matter", the student made an experiment called "Alcohol clouds"; at this moment, another student asks how this experiment is related to calculus: the student who makes the question shows the work what relates chemistry and calculus. It remarks the importance of relating the areas of knowledge, encouraging and persuading the participation of the students to not only understand the relation of science, but also to see how useful the subjects they're studying are. The motivational factor is essential in a college student.
