Chemistry Professor: “Good morning class, today we will be discussing the relationship between metals and salts.”
Prof: “While the term salt is most often used to describe the common table salt, sodium chloride, there are in fact millions of different types of salt.”
Gentry: *Internally screaming*
Prof: “A salt is any chemical in which the hydrogen in an acid has been replaced by a metal. Hydrochloric acid produces table salt when reacted with the metal sodium. However it is possible to make a salt from any metal on the periodic table, such as iron.”
The chemistry students were eyed even more warily after that day.
