    Sorta impossible if we want to maintain our anonymity (can you see me working at a white board with a paper bag over my head?), but there are a number of people here (e.g., Ashley, Esme, Ruby, me, and others) who hang out on the student fora and are happy to indulge their teaching jones by helping you.

    As ever, we don't do your homework for you, but if you say, "I learned this and that, but XYZ just doesn't make sense to me even though I looked up ABC, where am I going wrong?" there are people who will understand how you got to where you are and be able to help set you right. It's what we do for fun.

    Yeah I see what you are saying. I really do appreciate all that you and the others you mentioned do to assist us students. I will be referencing back to this thread when we are doing fluid and electrolytes in a few weeks, because it's one of those things where I think I get it, and then when I get to the "how do I apply this in real life" part, I realize once again that I don't REALLY get it.

    Draw the pictures. Make a salt solution in your kitchen, taste it, pour half of it out, dilute it with water, taste it, evaporate it, taste it. Put a piece of meat in water. Put a piece of meat in a concentrated salt solution. Really. Engage more parts of your brain.

    Could wear a fake mustache and glasses! I'm kidding-- of course. Lol. But, the paper bag would be super clever.

    A bit off the topic....when I read about the meat in salt solution, my brain superimposed the word "BACON" over the word 'brain.' Yum, bacon.
