    ah, that makes things so much clearer now.

    I don't have to touch Chemistry for the rest of my life anyway.. I think.
    Neither do I (really) as I'm a biochemist and we did chemistry last year but are moving away from it now!
    It's quite fun to do other people's work though as it's easier than mine :p:

    Yes, I have to agree. I find it more satisfying that way too.

    yeah i think i want the effective molar mass. But the last bit you said- i don't understand :s: , I might get Fleff to spell it out in laymans terms later.

    And yep, we're doing very similar pieces of coursework. Except I I'm using substances of known purity then testing different methods to see how accurate they are. I know she made her own aspirin, I didn't... :dontknow:
    So did I, it's just I went one step further [sort of] and made my own, then tested it with the most accurate method I'd found to find out how pure I'd made it [actually not very at all, seeing as the EMM came out in the 200's when it should have been between the values for salicylic acid and aspirin - 132 and 180 (ish)].
