Subscripts in a reaction

Postby Rika Jitosho 2E » Sun Feb 12, 2017 11:48 am

Does anyone know how important is it to keep track of, and write down, the subscripts (s), (l), (aq), (g) in a reaction on our tests/quizzes? In other words, will we be penalized for not including them in our work? Thank you!

From my experience, it was not that significant to have the subscripts in Chem 14A. However, they can be extremely useful if you're working through an extensive problem. Overall, I have never been penalized for not including them.

Okay, that's what I was thinking as well. Thank you for confirming!
