    Hmmm, it's hard to give a clue for Rg without giving it away...
    Look at the elements on the periodic table the numbers indicate, and see if you can spot why they are in that order. It's got nothing to do with their actual properties or anything like that...

    I really can't figure out why they're in that order, its nothing to do with the date of discovery and their atomic number isn't in the right order!

    EllyR, you are a godsend! I finally got it! Oh and, another clue to people still stuck on Rg, there are only 14 e******* in the p******* t**** that only have one "something" that isn't a chemical property at all. Figure out what the "something" is, and it should be easy.

    You may wish to look up 'chirality'. (Although you don't need it for the question. It's a pretty damn cool topic if I'm honest).

    You need to recognise the molecules associated with the pictures.

    X and Y are not numbers, they are formulae.

    Make sure you're giving the time in days not seconds, and go to 1 d.p.

    1 dp? Me and my friend used only 3 sig. fig. and the answer was accepted. Maybe you're using the faraday constant instead of just using avogadro and elementary charge. I hope you didn't forget to times 3, because Al2O3 is composed of Al3+ ions.

    Well finally finished. Silver was by far the hardest. The thing i hate (love?) about this quiz is that its so hard to figure out how to write the damn answers! Special thanks to llewellyn for the hints above. You don't even want to know the stupid mistake I was making for Gold! :P

    See you next month!
