    So I just realised that I enrolled for Computer Engineering instead of Computer Science.. Is there still a way I can change after missing the main round offers. I don't want to study full-time because I'd much rather do part-time study + a little bit of work on the side. Thank you...

    When bonds are broken do they release energy.. Or is energy released when bonds are made... Or does this depend on the nature of the reaction, either endothermic or exothermic. I'm confused. >.<

    Bromine water prac

    What's the equations? Since bromine water can be written as Br2 or BrOH, which one do we use? and when it decolourises, e.g. with hexene, is it: C6H12(l) + Br2(aq) --> C6H12Br2(aq) What is the equation with BrOH, since I only learnt the Br2 one.

    Proving Max points necessary?

    I notice that in some of the sample answers of past exams, for questions like "Hence show the maximum area is ... cm^2", the sample answers include an area where the person actually tests that it is a max, by testing 1 up and 1 down. Is that test actually necessary? Because I have never gotten...

    Calculating Real GDP

    How do you do this question? From HSC 2006 Question 12 I ended up with the answer B using the following working out however the answer is A: Inflation Rate = 125-110/110 = 13.6% Real GDP = Nominal (820) / 1.136 = 721.6 My working out ignores the second part "compared to the base year" as...
