chemistry in plain language?
« on: August 31, 2004, 01:09:07 AM »
Is there a site on the net that explains chemistry in simple terms?  I found several great sites but they assume a certain level of knowledge.  Can anyone help?

Chemistry has many subjects in it, is there a particular one you are interested in?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
