    I can't really help you out with molarity...it's been a while maybe 7 years...but anyway on this last test...where you having troubles understanding the concept? Did you study differently? What where your mistakes like? When you look at your mistakes were they silly ones that you can readily see? Or do you not understand why your answers were wrong? If you are having trouble with the concept, you may ask your professor to go over the problems you got wrong with you.

    Chin up though Rhona, everyone is entitled to one slip up every now and then. Don't let yourself get all worked up over one test when all the others were good.

    I took Chemistry last semester and had a tutor the whole time. This semester I tutor Chemistry and I would be glad to help you. The sutdents I tutor have just went over Molarity so it is still fresh on my mind. Just email me the particulars. GGingerSR@aol.com

    I learned molarity about a month ago. We're doing mass to mass (stoichiometry) right now. What a pain!!!

    Moles= 6.02x10^23 and atomic weight in grams...I think

    Sorry rhona, all I can offer is my sympathy. Chemistry nearly got the best of me in nursing school. The only 'C' I made throughout the whole time I was in school. And was quite proud to have managed that. Good luck to you!!!

    74 is a C right? that's ok for one test, some chapters are more difficult than others, also your Lab grade is a factor of your total chem grade so if you're doing well in the Lab it will help your overall grade.

    Check with NurseExplorer on the things that are giving you trouble, tutors can be very helpful.
