Re: Chemistry Jokes

Here's one:

A small piece of sodium that lived in a test tube fell in love with a Bunsen burner. "Oh Bunsen, my flame," the sodium pined. "I melt whenever I see you," The Bunsen burner replied, "It's just a phase you're going through."

Here's a throwback to 14a:

"A photon checks into a hotel and is asked if he needs any help with his luggage. He says, 'No thanks, I'm traveling light.'"

Re: Online Participation Points In-Advance

So if we missed a few weeks there is no way to make up those points? Say you didn't post for the first 3 weeks, then the maximum amount of points you can earn is 7/10 no matter how many times you post after that point? In terms of this class, when does a week technically begin, Sunday or Monday? Sor...

Re: Water in cell diagrams

Water might not be included in cell diagrams because it is on both the cathode and anode side, canceling out in a way. It's just the solvent and the oxidation numbers aren't affected. I'm not positive about this explanation, but the water doesn't seem to affect much.

mnemonics and basic guidelines for electrochem?

I'm sure this has been asked a few times, but does anyone know any good mnemonics or general guidelines to remember concepts from electrochemistry? I've heard of the Oil Rig trick and the consonant/vowel relationship between cathode/reduction and anode/oxidation. Sometimes these small hints or guide...

Re: Reversible and Irreversible Processes

I agree with the other posters. I may not be correct, but this may be another way to look at it. An irreversible process means that the surroundings and system can not return to its original conditions when the process is reversed. An example would be like burning a candle; the wax melts when the wi...

Re: Photoelectric Effect

What exactly is a "detector" in relation to the photoelectric effect? I understand the part about the metal and the photons but what is a detector in relation to them? Does the photoelectric effect only work on metals?
