Who in here is good/awesome in chemistry?? I need your help!
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 10:59:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 10:59:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm taking it too...secretagent, can you help me?
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 10:59:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:00:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sh*t at it, but I'll pretend like I understand it if you post the problem.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:01:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Okay, so which of these temperatures is impossible for a gas to have? 50C, 50K, -50K, or -50C?
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:02:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
-50C
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:02:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Actually no, -50K
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:03:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ditto. Nothing is below 0 K. And in case you ever see it, K isn't expressed in degrees. It's just 0 kelvins, not 0 degrees kelvins. I've busted several teachers on that. They, um, don't appreciate it.

Makes sense... thanks!
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:04:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
^^ lol
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:04:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
The point being the kelvin scale is the same as the Celsius scale but adjusted so that 0 K is absolute zero instead of the Celsius value which is -273.15°C. Fahrenheit is just dumb sh*t.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:08:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
okay, here's another. Explain why must you convert the temperature to an absolute temperature scale when you wish to use the direct proportionality of the temperature-volume law?

I REALLY need help w/ this?
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:15:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Because that's what the f*cking equation is based on? Every equation of anything requires certain units as input. The idea being that they cancel out with the other side to leave the units you're looking for. Just like you can't try to use miles per hour in an equation designed for meters for second, you can't use degrees Celsius in an equation built for kelvins.

might not want to copy that verbatim, DJ
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:19:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's' the basics of converting units and sh*t. You cancel out similar unit types. 12 kilometers per hour times 5 hours equals 60 kilometers 12 miles per hour times 5 hours does not equal the same. Equations are designed with the idea of certain inputs.

It's better than no answer

If you don't understand any of this sh*t there's nothing we can do to help you. If you openly and honestly state what you don't get I will do my best to explain it. I am an arrogant assh*le but part of that depends on my ability to explain things to other people.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:28:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Awesome, thanks!
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:30:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well teachers aren't stupid. I mean they are (compared to me) but it takes some effort to outsmart them. You have to know your subject matter. If you just write sh*t you see online it won't help. This stuff isn't terribly difficult anyway. With the right teacher anyone could understand this.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:33:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know, I kinda get the stuff, I just don't study it and I'm the kind of person that refuses to get helped or tutored
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:34:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
...really?
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/29/10 - 11:36:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know what you mean there. I would never seek help and was terrible at studying. I generally got it or I didn't. But if I had someone out there who might have explained it to me in a way I could understand I might have done much better.

Yes Really
