What is the net ionic equation of calcium oxide being dissolved in water?

5. ## Re: Science Trivia

Ah, I suck at chemistry, but I will give it a try:

CaO (s) + H2O (l) → Ca+2 (aq) + 2OH- (aq)

6. ## Re: Science Trivia

Excellent job. That is indeed the correct answer. Your question and +rep.

7. ## Re: Science Trivia

Ok, I can't think of anything better right now

Mathematically, the pressure of a mixture of gases that do not react with each other can be defined as the summation
or where represent the partial pressure of each component.

Who discovered that law?

What do you mean?

9. ## Re: Science Trivia

I was writing a question to keep the thread going, but you beat me to it.

Dalton?

In signal processing, Fourier Transfrom converts time domain signals to another domain. What is that domain.

13. ## Re: Science Trivia

Not sure, but probably the domain of frequency, because this is the reason Fourier transform is used in mechanics

You are right. Your turn. Repped ya.

Thanks. Ok:

What is a newtonean fluid?

16. ## Re: Science Trivia

A Newtonean fluid is a fluid (like water), where the viscosity does not depend on the forces acting on the substance. It only depends on temperature and pressure.
So in other words you'll never get the substance to stop behaving fluidic, just by using external force.
