    One of the questions asks how to titrate sebacic acid and the answer is to dissolve it in a base and then use acid to titrate. I'm just wondering...why do we dissolve in a base if it's an acid? For all titration questions, do we always dissolve in the opposite solution e.g. if we wanted to...

    confused about this one: If an acid is weak, thus giving off less particles, wouldn’t that make less of a difference on the boiling/freezing point? Because the vant Hoff factor would be a smaller number... Explanation says: “HClO would be the weakest acid thus giving the fewest particles...

    Is Gen Chem 1 or Gen Chem 2 more heavily weighted on the DAT?

    Does the DAT emphasize more content from Gen Chem 1 or 2? And what do they generally provide for that section? Do they provide all the formulas or do you have to remember them? Solubility rules? Polyatomic ions etc.? Thanks.

    Pre med grades

    after my first semester I got a d in gen chem. Its not because I didn't understand the materials, it was because I forgot my calculator for the first midterm and had half of the time to take it, and had incompatibilities with my roommate so it was difficult to focus/study in general. I am...

    I really do not want to double up on sciences during undergrad because I feel like that'll hurt my GPA. So I was wondering if I could take Gen Chem my freshman year, OChem sophomore year, Gen Bio my junior, and Physics my senior year? I know that you need physics for the MCAT, but I feel like I...

    So I know that the averages are pretty low for the ACS finals (averages of about 50%), but I thought I could at least get a C+/B without any sort of curve. I just took the ACS Gen Chem I final today and definitely failed because I couldn't finish it on time. I did manage to bubble in D's for...
