  • A Career In Chemistry

    How does your major (or minor) fit into your life’s plan? Chemistry, like all other sciences, provides us with a better understanding of how matter behaves. Chemistry provides ideas of explanation for laws of nature and realism, which are investigated using the specific theories, concepts, methods and experimental tools. I became a chemist to apply this to my life, and to provide tangible change to society. During my time in high school, AP chemistry was regarded as the toughest class. It was certainly the most challenging class I had to take at the time, but I was excited by the challenge. I chose to spend the next four years following high school at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign studying chemistry. My experiences inside and…

  • Organic Chemistry

    This semester, I’m in a course entitled Principles of Chemistry I. Currently, I need to learn and store trends of the periodic table. One particularly hard area is electron affinity and ionization energy trends. Electron affinity is how willing an element is to gain an electron, and ionization energy is how willing the element is to lose an electron. Remembering which direction each of those two trends go on the periodic table has been difficult for me. I’m trying to store this information in my…

  • Pharmaceuticals In Chemistry

    Pharmaceuticals are medicals drugs that are used or sold. When dealing with pharmaceuticals you have to deal with mixing substances together, knowing how much to put in every dosage, acids and bases, matter, chemical and physical properties, and etc. Pharmaceuticals are made of elements that are apart of the periodic table. That happens when combining two or more elements together causing a chemicals reaction. Also in chemistry is a law called the Law of Conservation of Matter which is used to…

  • Honors Chemistry Reflection

    the AP chemistry class for the following year and I had to pick a new science class for my junior year. When I asked why he told me that there were only eleven people signed up for the class and that they wanted fifteen to keep it open. To be fair it was understandable that most people would not want to sign up. Many found honors chemistry to be incredibly difficult and would be happy to be rid of it once they finished their final in June. I however, found it to be an incredibly interesting…
