I am Sarjan Satra from Mumbai, India. I have made this site so as to facilitate young students preparing for chemistry olympiads in their studies.
Olympiads are very different kind of exams. They test your creative and original thinking as well as your concepts. After learning the subject well it is necessary to practice a few good level problems in order to gain strength in that subject. Hence I strongly feel that this site will be useful to all students who are studying chemistry at the college or undergraduate level. The national level papers are much easier and will be useful even to the higher school students.
Anyone who hates chemistry must definitely solve a few problems and try to understand the beauty of chemistry. I am sure this will help him understand the subject better rather than mugging up a few thousand things.
All chemistry lovers may send me their queries at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also U can send me any new good questions which will be compiled and published on this site. Due credit will be given to the problem authors.
The syllabus for icho can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.
Well then, have a nice day.
Well if u are really not interested in all this please read this before u leave this site.
Qs. What is the atomic number of stupidium? ...for those of you who don't know, it's the metallic element that makes the skull dense.
Serious answers only please.
Ans. Best answer given by Sheila S.
Note - No offense to anyone. Meant only for fun.
The atomic number for stupidium is 81.5. That puts it is the mysterious WTF category of the periodic elements, right between thallium and lead. Its Abbreviation is STU.
Coincidentally, 81.5 is exactly the same as George Bush's IQ.
Scientists are mystified by this unusual element as it defies standard molecular theory. It seems to be one half an electron over brain-dead thallium, and just a little lighter than lead. Curiously, this too emulates the intellectual characteristics of the American president and 28% of American voters..
Today, quantum physicists are facing the uncomfortable possibility that the universe actually changes the laws of physics as it evolves. The mysterious nature of Stupidium and its peculiar correlation to Bush's brain have them worried. They are not sure if stupidium was manufactured in a secret government lab as part of a false flag operation, or if it developed naturally in response to the American apathy toward thinking.
Another theory states that stupidium is an inevitable product of watching television . There is some empirical data to support this notion, particularly when the victims are addicted to sports, especially football. Scientists have now proven that people watching TV have less brain activity than when they are asleep. Those who watch football are transformed into mental zombies, who yell for no reason and roam the night trying to satisfy their carnal lust for chicken-wings and beer.
Unlike most zombies, football zombies hate brains, either as a food or a device for ratiocination.
No matter where it came from, it is dangerous. Stupidium is pernicious and seems to be gaining mass, especially in right-wing republicans and religious factions all over the world.
There are warning signs to alert you when you might be in the presence of Stu-radiation. The EPA has posted this partial list:
Multiple televisions inside a restaurant that serves alcohol.
Cheering loudly at images of steroid-ridden goons running into each other.
"In God We Trust" license plates.
"Bush / Cheney" bumper stickers.
Any newscaster that uses the expression "fair and balanced."
Hoards of undead chicken-wing eatin', beer-guzzling Nascar-watchin' zombies.
If you notice the presence of any of these warning signs;
DO NOT PANIC!
Instead, calmly notify your local Haz-Mat certified fire-department. They can be reached toll-free at 1-800-UR2-DUMB. Stay near the scene and describe the signs. If the trained operator tells you to, run for your life!
If u have some other innovative answer u may email me and I shall post it here if good enough.
