Hi! I've been loosing marks for writing down the wrong state symbol in all my tests and its really bothering me. The problem I have is I know what the state symbols stand for and everything but I'm always strugging to know what the actual state symbols are. I've been just guessing everything. I was wondering if there's any way to know what the state symbol is without them mentioning it in the test. For example, I know that ionic compounds are often solids and precipitates of reactions are solids. Are there any other similar rules?
Thank you so much!
