PHYSICS vs BIOLOGY vs CHEMISTRY Watch
physics can exist without maths...
maths is the language of physics.
There are many great scientists who transcend these artificial boundaries in natural science (such as Michael Faraday, Marie Curie for instance) and the only reason they are enforced at undergraduate level and below is that the body of knowledge we have gained in natural science is so vast it is impossible for one person to be sufficiently knowledgeable of all of it.
Chemistry, obviously the best.
hi u said ur good at chemistry yeh
could u help me then with this question.
another industrial organic reaction is the polimerisation of ethene in the presence of oxygen catalyst. predict the product of this reaction and how?
well thats what i think.
its just that i get confused with the hard stuff like organic chemistry.
if anyone knows a bit about organic chemistry then plzzzzzzzzzzzzz do mail me\
Can we agree, however, that biology is basically flower pressing?
The worst of all is the merger between biology and chemistry --> biochemistry Pure evil!
Oooooh I LOOOOVE biochemistry! I do seem to be in the minority though, because most people I know hate it with a passion! Got my biochemistry exam tomorrow!
How can you possible love such an evil hybrid subject??! What sort of biochem stuff have you done to be examined on?

What was the lecture on peptide bonds like??
How can you possible love such an evil hybrid subject??!
Biochemistry is retarded. You invent terms like NADH and ATP and they suddenly turn into things like ADP. These threads are boring I agree.
