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.
