Quizzing is the pleasure of knowledge – or something like that… 😉 For all those who like to quiz with friends and family and measure their knowledge, we have again material today, this time a chemistry quiz! What was an atomic orbital again and why is the noble gas configuration so special? Test together how far your school knowledge of chemistry still reaches. Have fun!
As a child, I always wanted to be a chemist. At least in elementary school when my image was that you poured brightly colored and smoking liquid to each other and with a big PUFF some insanely great stuff came out of it, something useful, like glow-in-the-dark goo or a medicine against the annoying gravity….
Well, what can I say – later in high school I still found chemistry interesting, but also quite complex! Whoever had to learn to distinguish between different monosaccharides, did stoichiometric calculations and was taught the citrate cycle, knows what I’m talking about… In short: I did something else after all. 🙂
But do you ever wonder what’s left of all that school knowledge that you never use in everyday life? And how much do your friends still know? Which of you is the secret chemistry ace??? Find out together with our chemistry quiz!
And yes: For professional chemists this quiz is of course to easy to be a real challenge. But it’s adressed to lay persons.
The quiz including answers is also available as PDF for download. Enjoy!
