Final blog post

I learned so much this year.

 I started off the year knowing nothing about chemistry, feeling very overwhelmed because I had never taken physics either, so I decided to drop one of those classes. I dropped phyics and stuck with chemistry.(got back into physics later in the year).

I think I accomplished a lot this year. Got some pretty good marks after working hard and really trying to learn chemistry.

The chemistry teacher, Mrs.Cule, is probably the reason I stuck to chemistry. From day one, learning about electrons and protons she tried to help me understand it and eventually I did.  

I learned all kinds of things this year, like a whole bunch of things about gases - the ideal gas law and the general gas law, etc. I also learned about equilibrium, which was hard to understand at first but now I'm okay with it.

Little advice : It's easier to picture gas molecules and using common sense as to what would happen if you changed the size of the container or increased the concentration, you can think of the molecules as little kids in a room running around. More kids and less space = more collisions. It's easier than trying to remember word for word. (Learned this from Mrs.Cule also)
