Guys was the first 6 marker on the metals and polymer talking about an alloy? I think I misread the question. Also how tf did anyone do the last question I had to leave it bcs it was so hard 😭 AND I WAS SO LOST ON TBE FIRST OF THE STANDING WAVES QUESTION. Did anyone else get 51.9 seconds on the half life? Anyway I think it’s over for me 😞
