When we were in school, there were certain subjects we had to take whether we wanted to or not (most often not). And when it comes to the sciences, we had to sit down in many biology, physics and chemistry classes. To many, chemistry may have seemed like a boring science, the only excitement being the occasional volcano baking soda reaction, getting to light the Bunsen burner and when a solution accidentally overflowed. Beyond that, the chemical reactions were a pain to remember for most, and trying to remember whether a hydrocarbon and oxygen mixture was combustible or corrosive just called on a migraine.
So, we won't make you relive those days of horror. Instead, we're going to test whether you remember how some of the words were spelled. Was it exothermic or exsothermic? Was the word supposed to be assitate or acetate? We've riddled this quiz with questions testing your knowledge on some of the most common words in the chemistry lexicon and it's up to you to choose the correct spelling for every word. Will you redeem yourself by acing this quiz, or is chemistry just not for you? Let's find out!
