I was really looking forward to having to explain some huge chemical reaction. Like the production of acid rain/NOx/Sulphur junk in the atmosphere! There were none at all! Even explaining the cycle of the Cl- and ClO would have been fun, but all for not. :eek:

I know! What a bloody waste of my study time yesterday. I studied so hard for all those stupid formulas. It turns out that they don't need many at all!

I could've focused my time on other questions.

Who used UO2 pellets in their explanation for making commercial radioisotopes?

I agree, I learnt the equations and stuff for those types of things and none of them were asked, not even the solvay process in industrial chem... oh well....
