    So I was doing my Chemics homework and I had to search for the melting point of gold.
    So looked in the book and i saw that the melting point of gold was 1337 K, kinda funny eh?

    No not in chemics it means Kelvin or Kalvin or whatever you type it. it's a temparature name like celsius and fahrenheid

    Actually you're both wrong, the melting point of Gold is indeed 1337 Kelvins, but 1337K is the incorrect way of writing it. 1337°K is the way.

    It is °C and °F but with Kelvin it is just K.

    What the hell was wrong with my G12 Physics Teacher??? [​IMG] I just check the periodic table in my Engineering Text, and it is K without the degree sign.

    Die, I haven't been in a chemistry class in years. I bet you don't know what the value for molar volume of any gas at STP is!

    They occupy 22.4 liters at STP and 24.8L at SATP per mole. Dude, I'm a University level Engineer Student, don't act like you know everything. We all know you're smart, but you can get cocky.

    I also noticed that you are from Iran, are you an Azeri by any chance?

    Damn! How about......god my school sucked, most of the material was videos from the 80s.....let me think of something they would have taught in a 1987 chemistry class, and I'll get back to you.
