there be chemistry

If anyone needs a diagram for molecular structures…

The lack of central atoms was intentional btw but trust me they are there they’re just life size.

Also IF YOU ARE NOT IN NZ the names may be different I’m sorry! Just let me know and I can change it for you.

Law of Large Numbers

Diffusion is an example of the law of large numbers, applied to chemistry. Initially, there are solute molecules on the left side of a barrier (purple line) and none on the right. The barrier is removed, and the solute diffuses to fill the whole container.

Top: With a single molecule, the motion appears to be quite random.

Middle: With more molecules, there is clearly a trend where the solute fills the container more and more uniformly, but there are also random fluctuations.

Bottom: With an enormous number of solute molecules (too many to see), the randomness is essentially gone: The solute appears to move smoothly and systematically from high-concentration areas to low-concentration areas. In realistic situations, chemists can describe diffusion as a deterministic macroscopic phenomenon, despite its underlying random nature.



I have this water bath that is used to keep multiple large batches of bacteria at temperature while we monitor their oxygen use. The bath water gets all kinds of stuff in it over time and I recently let it dry out. These little weird square pale green salt crystals with little X’s in the middle grew in the empty bath! I am not a mineralogist so I have no idea what they are. (But if you do, let me know!)

4/100 Days of productivity 🤗

It’s almost a week since I started this 😆. Today I woke up at 6:30 , cleaned kitchen , my room, my boxes arrived so I finally organized my desk!😆 I also did a lot of biology and chemistry 📖.

I’m proud of myself!

Well.. I was planning to go swim today but I guess I’m too tired 🤒

  • Favourite types of threads: emotional threads, not necessarily angst-heavy. just feels.
  • The biggest struggle in regards to your current muse: he’s a well-written character in the books ok and so i will forever question if i can interpret him well. i’m always scared that i don’t and i know he is well-loved so forgive me if i fail!!!! also, i nearly failed my chemistry, man. and i despise math. :p
