Why Chemistry Sucks

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 16 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’ve recently determined that chemistry sucks, and can join other sucky things on my list of things that suck (similiar to Bush’s Axis of Evil). Chemistry sucks because despite the fact that it tries to be an exact science and it’s taught as an exact science, it is not, in fact, an exact science. For example, we’re currently working on solving equations that determine pH’s, solubility, equilibria. Yet, certain parts of very critical equations can actually be left out if values are small enough! It doesn’t make any sense. The only reason I’m not dropping it is because A) it’s a required class, and B) it’s the last required chemistry class and I want to get it done and over with NOW! I’ve also managed to find a cool little resource that will hopefully help: http://www.sparknotes.com/chemistry/. They worked in High School for English, hopefully they’ll work now.

  1. If this were’nt the internet I would shake your hand.

    Chemistry is the worst class I have ever taken.

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more. I totally hate chemistry especially if were asked to answer equations that are out of this planet.

  3. Chemistry is not taught as an exact science. There is no such thing as an exact answer. There is always a degree of error to any answer. That is why significant figures are used to minimize this problem. You upset because you say you can leave things out, well let me tell you that your answer wouldn’t be any different if you kept those parts in.

  4. chemistry sucks why the fuck does nursing students need to take this shit it’s useless whent you are on duty
