Whole Class Is On A Whole Lot Of Acid

| Learning | May 5, 2016

(My chemistry class are studying acids and bases. We’ve just finished covering acids so we’re revising for the last 15 minutes of the class. My class has a system that if we are asked a question requiring multiple answers our class goes around in a certain order due to the small size of our class, nine students.)

Teacher: “So you will need to know three examples of a weak acid and three examples of a strong acid. Also formulas are a must. [Student #1], start us off. Weak acids first then strong acids.”

Student #1: “Formic acid, formula is HCOOH.”

Student #2: “CH3COOH, which is acetic acid.”

Student #3: “Hydrofluoric acid, which has the formal of HF.”

Student#4: “Hydrochloric acid, HCl.”

Student #5: “H2SO4, sulphuric acid.”

Me: *muttering under my breath* “F***, I was gonna say that!”

Teacher: “[My Name] do you have an example of a strong acid?”

Me: *having a complete mind blank* “Er… LSD?”
