I'm 21. By my junior year in high school I burnt out, stayed in for my diploma and went to college the next year (what was I thinking?). It's been almost 4 years since I left college and I want to independently study chemistry, math, philosophy, and music/art before I decide to return to college. Chemistry is the subject I'm most interested in, yet have the most difficulty with. If you stuck with me, thank you, for those that didn't:

TL;DR: How do I learn to chemistry?

Well calculus uses limits, sums, log and trig functions, lots of algebraic manipulation, so perhaps you failed because you didn't know those.
In my opinion, the only way to get math is to work problems, a lot of them.

I know the article is outdated, but it was one I could actually understand

According to this article, the first immortal human won't be alive during our lifetimes, this is based not he assumption that we would achieve immortality via clones of ourselves, using "brain transplants" and possibly "uploading consciousness". It further goes on to describe how the social implications of these aforementioned tasks would make the process controversial and possibly illegal.

But as we know the media is almost consistently wrong about technology and the future of it., Often times making haphazard claims against budding technologies.

Some loopholes include the fact that we're capable of cloning humans already, that you could switch bodies with a clone that's at least 6 years of age (considering cranial cavity growth) and simply grow with it. and that there have been studies that show you can bypass the spinal cord and use brain implants to move body parts, as opposed to reconnecting everything perfectly

What is /chem/'s opinion on the matter of hypothetical biological immortality?
Specifically, if it's possible and how they would go about doing it, (not so much the moral aspects)

how do we know that the correlation between CO2 and temperature levels is a causal link, and how do we know which way round the causation is?

this isn't an anti-environmentalist shitpost, I'm just uneducated on this and I'd like to know more. Most climate scientists are pretty adament that there's no debate here, and that we are as certain as we can be that increased CO2 leads to higher temperatures. And yet, despite watching the news and documentaries about this a lot, I've never actually been told why we should believe this, apart from just having it shown to me that a correlation exists (which obviously doesn't prove anything in and of itself)

We know from ice core samples that co2 levels drag behind temperature changes significantly. The explanation seem to be the oceans, which release more co2 when warmer, and which take a significant amount of time to heat up.

nb, because I wish it was 1-5 degrees warmer right now and not in 100-500 years, so if despite common sense opposing globalist propaganda, the minor greenhouse gas of which we produce a small percentage, and not the sun, is in fact the driving force behind the climate, we shouldnt make a big deal out of it.
We know for certain that the planet can withstand and recover from much higher fluctuations of temperature and co2 that we could ever accomplish with puny 8bln people (ants produce more co2, and a single catastrophic volcano that statistically will erupt at some point can produce more than burning global oil reserves at once), with minimal damage to the ecosystem (the warmer and co2 richer periods actually had more biodiversity and biomass because plants like it and animals can adapt), sans a few extinctions (that are just the way things go in the long run) and a bit less land near the shores, so theres no reason to slow down the oil dependent progress (which could potentially make us oil independent soon or even some day ensure our survival) apart from the romanticized and biased environmentalist opinions on how warm the earth should be.

That doesn't look like it would work, OP. Looking at trichloroisocyanuric acid, the mechanism isn't apparent. Wikipedia says AlCl3 is produced at very high temperatures, with elemental Al and Cl, so I highly doubt your reaction will work.

>Things have to be in whole numbers
No they don't. They're ratios. Simply multiply by the equation by two, and it makes sense. Or, Think of it as moles instead of molecules.

Trichloroisocyanuric acid decomposes to chlorine, nitrogen and carbon oxides when heated to 230°C and Wikipedia says Al and Cl react at 650-750°C which is not exactly a "very high temperature". The reaction itself probably produces some heat too.

89) From the graph you can determine that delta t is 0.08 s and the magnitude of F is 150 N. So by the provided formula,
delta p = (-150 N)(0.08 s) = -12 N s
F is negative, because it's directed against the balls initial direction of motion (I'm defining this initial direction of motion as the positive direction).
The initial momentum of the ball is:
p_i = m v_i = (0.15 kg)(30 m/s) = 4.5 N s
Therefore, the final momentum is:
p_f = p_i + delta p = 4.5 N s - 12 N s = -7.5 N s

90) Kinetic energy is defined as:
T = p^2/(2m)
The change in the kinetic energy is:
delta T = T_f - T_i = p_f^2/(2m) - p_i^2/(2m) = (-7.5 N s)^2/(2*0.15 kg) - (4.5 N s)^2/(2*0.15 kg) = 120 J

Note on units: [N s]^2/kg = [(kg m/s^2) s]^2/kg = [kg m/s]^2/kg = kg m^2/s^2 = N m = J

Good luck! :)

First of all I would just like to mention I'm a noob at physics, but am highly curious.

I was watching some documentaries about space-time, and there it said that if you were to travel at near the speed of light, from the outside perspective you would seem really small or condensed.

When I was younger I used to love Star Trek, so this reminded me about the Star Trek and when the ships go into hyperdrive.

My question is, are the effects for the ships accelerating in Star Trek wrong, since the ships are seen from the outside perspective, and they are seen as stretching, instead of condensing?

Although, you could argue that the camera filming the ship is also moving at the same speed, but if you're going that far, you might talk about how the camera wouldn't work, because both objects are moving at the speed of light, and the photons wouldn't be received by the shutter n' whatnot.

What the documentary you watched was talking about (actual physics):

It's called a warp drive in the series (science fiction):

Basically, warp drives are used in the series to traverse interstellar distances faster than the speed of light. This is achieved by bending and stretching space around a warp bubble containing the spacecraft. Because space is being warped around the spacecraft, it seems to me the light contained within this space would be warped around as well. This means the spacecraft should be invisible to observers outside the warp bubble. Otherwise, the spacecraft could be observed traveling faster than the speed of light, violating relativity.

All this warp drive business is science fiction of course, but it's based on real science and could turn out to be a real possibility. See:

IMO if the ship were just cruising and then suddenly disappeared when warp drive was initiated, this would confuse the audience. The visual effect is just used to get across to the audience that the ship is now going very very fast, and I think it serves its purpose well. Also, it looks cool.

Participant Information Sheet

I am a third year psychology student currently working on my dissertation project, at Edge Hill University. I am currently recruiting participants to take part in my study and would be grateful if anyone would be willing to give up a small amount of their time to be a participant in my study. The study will be completely anonymous and conducted over the internet, and should take no more than an hour at most to complete.

This study is attempting to study the differing side effect profiles of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and Bupropion (aka Wellbutrin or Zyban) when used as a treatment for Major Depression Disorder (MDD). Participants are needed to provide details of their current medication, any previous treatment medicines they were prescribed, their side effects encountered and their satisfaction with these side effect profiles.

For the purposes of eliminating anomalies and ensuring a valid sample, participants who wish to be included in the study must fulfil the following criteria:

1) You must have a diagnosis of Major Depression Disorder (MDD) with no other co-morbid mood disorders.

2) You must be currently prescribed and taking either an SSRI or Buproprion (Wellbutrin or Zyban) to manage this condition.

If you wish to participate in this study, please send an email to

Can you give me some good resources where I can learn chemistry and mathematics?

When I was younger I played a game called "Galactic Civilizations" and it's sequel. They got me interested in crazy technology and the future. Space travel is cool. Immortality is cool. Existential crisis about your place in the universe is cool. I want to learn about those things.

But I am embarrassingly uneducated. I have a high school understanding of chemistry and algebra is the extent of my mathematics knowledge. I figure that if you want to have a basic foundation in any field, be it astronomy or electrical engineering or biology, you must have a good hold of chemistry and mathematics.

So can you give me some places where I can start at the simple beginnings and work my way to the frictionless cloth and one-dimensional phasers?

and finally, before someone discounts this by saying that it does not seem large enough, or proportinate, take into account the great inaccuracies of the mercator projection. i implore you to use google earth and check these observations yourself, becasue the mercator projection is one of the worst ways to look at the earth if you want an even remotely accurate picture. the only thing mercator is good for is coastlines, (not size or distance), which is why sailors used it, and why it's so proliferated today.
