What are the effects of chemistry on the home?

What are the effects of the application of chemistry on the home/household?

Can anyone please give me some effects chemistry as a science has in our everyday lives? Thanks!

I use chemistry every day in my kitchen when I cook & bake, when we treat our pool, when I take a shower, when I clean etc.

There is no telling how long chemicals stay on surfaces, but they don’t stay there indefinitely, otherwise you would only need to use them once wouldn’t you. Also the risk of dangerous bacteria and germs far outweigh the dangers of cleaning with things like chemicals.

We utilized a home removal service recently and our new home stays clean because we use chemicals in moderation. Dilute your cleaning products down with water if you are concerned.

I have a chemistry project where I have to bring a food in that is a play on the word “mole”, any suggestions?

Mesocyclone asked:

In case you want to know a mole in chemistry is a measurment for a substance and each mole of a substance contains about 6.022×10^23 particles. Since tomorow is 10/23 it is national mole day.
Sorry I didn’t mention this before but, something other than guacamole would be great

Christians, what makes you more knowledgeable about biology than every scientist on the planet?

Andrea Guitar Heroine asked:

99.98% of the scientific community accepts the theory of evolution, and these are people who have spent their entire adult lives doing work and research and studying the work and research of others in their respective fields.

Then you, armed with a high-school education in biology or even less than that, and a thousand-year-old tome written by Bronze Age goat herders who thought the earth was flat, think you know better than they do? And then you call them elitist? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound?

How is double jumping against the laws of physics?

xshadowghostx asked:

I was playing Spider-man 3 and in the beginning that narrator dude was like “Ok, here we go again, breaking the laws of physics. Practice your double jumping”. Or something to that effect. I have a basic understanding that once an object is in motion it stays in motion until it comes in contact with something else consisting of matter. Can someone that is good at physics go more into depth and explain why double jumping is considered breaking the laws of physics?

What can I do with both a physics degree and a chemistry degree?

Steady As She Goes asked:

I am attempting to get a double degree in physics and chemistry and then going on to a PhD program in physics. What can I do with this? I’m I know that you can do more than teaching, research, and flipping burgers, so don’t give me any crap about how it’s a useless.

I am a biology/education major. We have to present proposals on a solution to a problem in our field of study for my technical writing class. What is an issue in biology, education, or both which I can address with my proposal? Something with nice statistics I can graph would be great
