Electrochemistry Exams
I really do prefer electrochem over organic chem, but whether or not I’ll perform better is  a whole different story. The exam today was horrible, and three hours of analysis and PH level-ing was too much for us. If I’m going to suck during the school year though, I think it wont be as bad as if I didn’t take this class in advance. If I fail, it probably won’t be as bad.
I’ve learned that you should never really fall asleep studying this in the car, especially after what happened yesterday when a huge container truck of Sulfuric Acid ended up next to us in traffic.
The lessons were interesting, especially when we sidetracked into combustibility. It turns out different metals have different colors when this happens, like copper is always blue and potassium is always pink. I took a mental note to dig deeper into that, and also to look for some possible neutralizer that isn’t Nitrogen based.
