Every competition I do not finish and my partner has to do polymers, chroma, mass spec, and physical evidence themselves. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Also test tube cleaning in between powders takes a long time? And sometimes I even run out ot powders. Is this normal? Thanks
Try well plates... this will limit true cleanup in between, and help you keep track of the powders easily. Also, depending on the type of person you are, either work only with one powder at a time, or do one test at a time. I prefer working with about 3 powders at a time, just to keep me from getting too confused. I only use test tubes for benedicts.
