A chemistry table of everything
Wow, I never realised that the start of the year could be so busy! Anyway, while I look for new interesting things to post, here is something that I made a while ago – a table of "everything" for chemistry measures, detailing their relations to the mole.
Update: Find this useful? Maybe you’d like part two of our series: a diagram of organic reaction pathways.
The instructions are on the A4 document, but you basically just follow the symbols of one colour around the semi-triangular table, counting the thick lines as "equals" and the thin ones as "multiply". So, if we want to find out the relationship between mass (
m) and moles (
n), we just look at pink, and following it around get
m = M × n. Similarly, for the ideal gas law, we look at light blue, and get
V × P = n × R × T. Simple, eh?
Find it confusing? Have a suggestion? Then post a comment, and I’ll see what I can come up with (though it’s a while since I gave up chemistry)!
Note: this table is primarily intended as a revision tool for High School chemistry students, particularly those studying the Victoria, Australian VCE Chemistry 3/4 syllabus.
