Forgive me if I'm wrong, but ammonia? Odorless? I would, in the least, say that ammonia has a strong odor. Of course, P&P may have different baselines than Crime Busters, but I'm just in shock to see that on here.

I still smell ammonia on my Chem Lab goggles (I think it's in my head...) ever since we worked with it three months ago. There is no way in the universe that ammonia is odorless.

Oh, oops. Mixed ammonia up with Nitrogen (hah, im a meteorology-herpetology guy). My partner does crime so ill just rely on him :)

Maybe
It has the highest electronegativity?

Some random organism questions:
1. Which one of the organisms can also be called “Chinese Mandrake”?
2. Are the tadpoles of the cane toad toxic?
3. What kind of toxin ones the brown recluse spider have?

Anyone have a P&P test to share? All of our invitationals returned our answer sheets, but not the test itself.

Thanks

I have a question '~'
To 2.00 L of 0.445 M HCl, you add 3.88 L of a second HCl solution of an unknown concentration. The resulting solution is 0.974 M. Assuming the volumes are additive, calculate the molarity of the second HCl solution.

M in total solution:

(2.00 + 3.88)L x 0.974 M/L = 5.73 M

M in 1st solution:

2.00L x 0.445 M/L = 0.890 M

Difference gives M in 2nd solution:

5.73 M- 0.890 M = 4.84 M

M of 2nd solution

4.84mole/3.88L = 1.25M

Since no one is responding, I'll take over. Your answer is correct, so your turn

Okay.

1. How many eyes does Loxosceles reclusa have?
1a. How are the eyes arranged and what is this arrangement called?
2. What type of bond involves the complete transfer of valence electrons?
3. How much does one mole of 100% pure isopropyl alcohol weigh, in grams?
4. What are the three routes of exposure to toxins?
5. In paper chromatography, there are two phases. Name and describe them.
6. Which environmental toxin is an EPA criteria pollutant?
6a. What are the other five EPA criteria pollutants?
7. What does LD50 stand for?
8. What are the early stage processes in an oil spill at sea?
9. If 2,000 people were exposed to urushiol, about how many would have no reaction whatsoever?
10. Two household chemicals cause olfactory fatigue or adaptation: name them.
