An odd formula I've never seen before
« on: May 20, 2012, 08:54:49 PM »
I saw a sign in someone's house that said

Na3CO2 + FePb = Happiness

I know what each element is but not what that formula is, any help?

Thanks!

Hmmm ... here in the US, we tend to say happiness is a warm gun.  So, that might explain the lead and the iron.  The improper carbonate compound ... that one I can't figure out.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

Well, let's say that it's actually Na2CO3, what would sodium carbonate do with iron and lead? sodium carbonate removes oil and grease, maybe it's about cleaning pots and pans or something.

So happiness is a clean gun?  I suppose.  But a clean gun is one that cleaned of its residual lead particles, and just how greasy do guns get?  Meh, as good an answer as we're likely to find.
