    Hello, okay to play the 'GCSE' Facts game all you do is write a simple fact about any of the core subjects be it - English, Maths or Science.

    All you do is write a statement about one of the subjects and someone responds whether it's True or False and create a new statement.

    For example:

    User 1: Speed = Distance ÷ Time

    User 2: True - Mr. Birling in an 'Inspector Calls' is not a capitalist.

    User 3: False - In Maths, the mean is where you add all numbers and divide by how many there are.

    And so on...

    I feel this could help people just read through various topics and pick up some interesting facts which could help them. They don't need to be as simple as the ones in the example.

    I'll start:
    Weight = Mass × Gravitational Field Strength

    This is an awesome idea.

    Cool idea!

    W = mg is true (I think )

    1 N = 1 kg m/s

    Spoiler:
    Show

    It was false! 1 N = 1 kg m/s^2

    Hmm okay. Each of the Birlings in An Inspector Calls represents a different facet of selfishness.

    This is seen as true in the eyes of many. 'An Inspector Calls' play carries a Christian message, applying a deadly sin to each of the characters - Arthur is greed, Eric is lust, Sheila is envy, Sybil is vanity. Priestley does this to assign the family as villainous and to discourage their behaviour.




    Okay, my 'fact':
    Underneath her dangerous aura, Curley's Wife is really just a simple girl who's taken the wrong path with her life.

    Yep, they should be IIRC

    Saturated fats have lower boiling points than unsaturated fats.

    False, unsaturated fats have more double bonds this decreases boiling and melting points.

    The Haber Process occurs at 450 degrees C because it produces the best yield for ammonia. (true/false? + explain)
    Yep, because it produces the optimum yield of ammonia. Any lower would decreases rate of reaction and higher would shift equilibrium to the reverse direction (N2+3H2 side).

    Sorry but you are incorrect. The Haber Process occurs at 450'c to increase the rate of reaction, not the yield which I stated. The optimum temperature for yield is lower than this.
    Ah whoops, just me misreading the question again, lulz Gotta watch out for those questions in exams, they always trip me up
