Chemistry Reflection

This is my second year doing online classes and I must say it's a lot of responsibility. Having to go to online class when there's a PD day at school, doing all of the little assignments teachers assign and being dedicated because with online class, there's no teacher hovering over you to get your work done, it's all you and your choices.
I'd say my online experience is one that I will never forget and one that I'm proud of. So to all of the students who are thinking about doing these classes or have already signed up, I have a few pieces of advice:
- Do not hesitate, sign up.
- Be organized.
- Ask questions if you don't understand.
- Socialize with your classmates, when appropriate.
- Do 95 % of the work the teacher assigns you, it comes in handy.
- Work hard.

Each teacher at E-learn has the capability of making you feel comfortable and to make you understand. And if you don't, well that's what extra help is for!
I can assure you that joining the E-learn family will be something you won't regret.

Hope you have as much fun as I did :)

Recap of Chemistry!

Okay, so we've done all of this work on reversible reactions and equilibrium: Le Chatelier's Principle, Factors effecting euqilibrium, The Equilbrium constant...and so on.

But let's go back to the basics.

What is a reversible reaction?

A reversible reaction is one that can function in the forward direction (producing products) and also in the reverse direction (producing reactants). The products are capable of breaking down into the reactants which got them into that state.

How do you establish a reversible reaction?

Well, in order for this to work, the reaction HAS to take place in a closed system.
