Are you right or left brainer?

THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

Chemistry Question - Practical Qns

Hey can you pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee help me with a qn.

This is for the chemistry spa I would be sitting tmr (SEC 3)

During an acid base titration, what are the possible sources of experimental error?

It would be great If I could get a reply today bcos as I have mentioned earlier I am sitting for the science practical O LEVELS tmr!!


Three most common ones are:

1) Parallax Error - Wrong placing of the eye while taking readings
2) Meniscus reading - Should be done at the bottom of the meniscus curve, not above or within the curve
3) Washing of the conical flask with analyte before titration. This causes additional amount of analyte to be included into the flask (in addition to the actual amount that you intended to pipette in)
