##### A different question
« on: October 30, 2012, 07:05:26 AM »
Hey

Not sure where to post this but I`ll try here.

Its a brain teazer with some chemical things in it...but as im not chemist Im having trouble seeing the logic in it.

The answer is coordinates - here is an example N58 46.123 E005 37.123

And heres the teazer  N58 46.(U)(C3H5(NO3))(Br)   E005 37.(Pu)(PbSO4)(NH4NO3)

Calculating just molar masses gives coordinates of a building.

You have to decide - you either know nothing or you know something. You can't know and not know at the same time.

Let us also not forget  Donald Rumsfeld:

There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns; that is to say there are things that, we now know we don't know.
But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know we don't know.

Sorry mate, actually I'm new here, so I do not actually know where to post my question. Please forgive me.

I was jesting, don't take me seriously. But, yes, you might have better success in the right forum.
