  1. In terms of entropy, if a chemical reaction is endergonic, will the reactants always have more total molecules than the products? And if exergonic, will it be the opposite, and the reactants will have more total molecules than the products? Ex: 2C4H10 + 13O2 ---> 8CO2 + 10H2O Reactants: 15 total molecules Products: 18 total molecules Reaction is exergonic, because the product has more total molecules than the reactants. Ex 2: CuSO4 + 2NaOH ---> Cu(OH)2 + Na2SO4 Reactants: 3 total molecules Products: 2 total molecules Reaction is endergonic, because
  2. Thanks for the breakdown! I have 8 months of Chemistry coming up, I am really looking forward to it.
  3. I once read long ago that the average human cell contains enough stored energy, that if it were released all at once, it would create a massive explosion. Could we estimate the amount of energy (thermal, sound, mechanical energy) released if every bond in a human cell were broken all at once?
  4. Man I was rather crude back when I started this thread. I apologize for all the logical fallacies I committed THE PLOT THICKENS: http://news.discovery.com/human/evolution/ancient-humans-had-sex-with-mystery-relatives-131203.htm#mkcpgn-fbnws1 http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/05/science/at-400000-years-oldest-human-dna-yet-found-raises-new-mysteries.html?emc=eta1
  5. Whats up? Are you are drunk with your moderator power now? Can't say hi? I knew you since you were still in diapers son.

  6. Thank you so much my friend, TAR2. I appreciated your well thought out response. "Hum. Consciousness till the end of the universe. Don't you think by then we would have figured a way to even avoid that?" I was going to mention perhaps we will find a way to quantum leap through dimensions, if you want to go real far, even perhaps becoming deities of our own Universes. " But I am not so sure we are setup to look forward to great great great great great.....great grand kids. Plus, there is already a population problem we have been having for the last 50 years or so, and in places like
  7. Anything that would motivate you to want to be alive.
  8. Call me an idealist and a dreamer, but I view death as the greatest enemy to sentience. I have a slightly different view and hope... I think mankind can and will find a way to reverse aging, and then eventually figure out how to control the chemistry of life. Perhaps later, we will be able to use technology to transfer our consciousness into an artificial device, which would then perhaps, just maybe, grant us immortality until the Universe ends. My point being, rather than try and change culturally how we view death, we should unite and make it a prime objective of our species to overcome.
  9. Can you explain how any sentient creature would care about living, without some form of a reward system?
  10. Now if only they could make it look less like the car for a man with a very small penis, that would be sweet.
  11. Hehehe how do you figure?
  12. Well not sure if anyone is still following this, but I have passed several more classes with an A. I am still holding a 4.0 GPA and scored a perfect 100 in my Chemistry class (104 on my final since I scored all 4 bonus questions right). I really enjoyed Chemistry, I never knew it would be so much fun. Seriously considering changing my end goal from Biotechnology to Chemistry.
  13. So the new universe will "snip off" like a small bubble from the parent universe. The question then is, how is time handled in the outer-universal expanse? It seems to me that nothingness is an impossibility when it comes to energy, and thus somehow some force must react on anything and everything that is travelling between the parent/daughter universe (similar to the Casimir Effect), including any and all forces emitting from either of them reacting with any and all forces from the other. Just like bubbles inflating in a bubble bath, they will always be "touching" if you will, and expanding
  14. Speech has been annihilated. Final grade of 98. I retain my 4.0, and what's more the teacher was very impressed with my speaking skills. He asked me the first week if I ever did public speaking before. I guess all those years as a fundamentalist Jehovah's Witness really helped (I am an agnostic atheist now, if you were wondering). I originally thought the class would be boring. The teacher though, was great, and along with the learning we did a lot of really fun activities. In a way I am glad it is over though, since I am not a fan of speaking in front of strangers. My next class
