You would need 2 wheels and a frame to make a bicycle. You wouldn't want just 1 wheel and a frame.

2wheels + 1frame ---> bicycle

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Always start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

The medicenes which you take when you are unwell are direct results of Pharmaceutical sciences which is based on stoichiometry.so whenever you are taking a medicene,remember it is a result of some stoichiometric problem.

LOL. Stoichiometry is important because it allows us to predict how much of reactant is consumed in a chemical reaction, or how much unwanted product is generated. This is especially important in medicine, because we would want the amount of toxic side products formed from the biochemical processes acting on the consumed medicine in our body to be minimal.
