Hey
I wanted to try this even out this year, but I'm not sure what we actually do. I like chem and labs, so i thought why not? I sorta got some tips from former teammates and they said it was about titration last year. Does anyone know what we are doing exactly this year?

We're doing kinetics and aqueous solutions

What specifically about kinetics? Do we have to memorize which ions do and don't precipitate? Unfortunately, I don't get rules 'till October.

We have to know why certain conditions affect reaction rates, rate laws experimentally at state level, and determine rate constants, as well as certain ions in precipitates, freezing point depression, molarity, molality, and the such.

compared to last year, the topics seem somewhat lame

Omg you guys are so much smarter than me. This saddens me greatly.
I've been in science olympiad for four years but this is my first year doing chem lab. I'll probably suck immensly but I'll be sure to have a good time.
I'm incredible at write it do it, I've been in science olympiad for four years, science olympiad is a lot of fun thoughhh haha.

Hi Andrewbji,
I wanted to try this even out this year, but I'm not sure what we actually do. Chemistry is your favorite subject. In Chemistry lab many types of materials are necessary. As per my opinion your team leader rightly said about last year matter. You have to follow that suggestion. I hope it should be positive for you.

I think chem lab should be more practical; in that sense, simple rate law and aqueous solution problems are boring...

Last year's titrations were a bit hectic, yet fun. Leaving the practical side of chem lab (experimentally solving for rate laws) for more competitive tournaments like states is demotivating..
