Always with the chemistry, ALWAYS with the chemistry...grrrrrrrrrr.
At least Statistics is easy and interesting.
And at least Bio is hard but really fun (among other things that are ;) Sorry, I just had to...)

But yes, Chemistry. I don't frickin' care about titration and complex ions and following my professor around every two seconds during lunch breaks to get equations graded one at a time!!
At least lecture's now childishly easy, to make up for the undefeatable monster of a lab...

You really must email me the equations so I chan have a look over them.

I will! I get off work in an hour and a half--I'll try to then. Thank you so much dear. I think I fixed most of them, but he's horribly picky :/

I looked them over; my eyes glazed over. I pulled out my cheat sheets.
That failing, I approached Seigal (aka Birdman, Seagull, and Albatross). He looked them over; his eyes glazed over; he said #3 looked physically possible.
He also said that he wasn't sure what your prof was asking you to do. Were you trying to ballence the equasions? I'd thought you were just predicting output.

I was just predicting output, lol...all we got were the complex ions for the clear products. We had to come up with everything else from scratch (which is probably why. I know it's physically impossible, but I can't see any way it would be physically possible so those were the best I could do).
Oh and btw, I found out the first three equations on there are right (someone who had them graded compared em with me. That just leaves the next nine :/

Titration? lol I never did that in chemistry...it sounds...scary

My chemistry was mainly devoted to finding excuses to play with fire while everyone else found excuses not to let me. Give a demonstration on mixing your own dun powder one time, and they never let you live it down.

It was at first, lol.
It's mainly slooooowly adding an acid to a base with an indicator in it, to see how long it takes to completely neutralize both the acid and the base with just the right amount of acid. Then, you find the molarity of the base from your volume of base/mass of acid. Pretty tedious, lol.
