For an experiment, a chemistry teacher takes out a $20 bill

For an experiment, a chemistry teacher takes out a $20 bill and put it’s in a bottle of ethanol. He then ask his students if it will dissolve.

*A student raise his hand to answer.*

Student: No it won’t dissolve sir.

Teacher: Really good! Now can you explain to the rest of the class why?

Student: You’re so cheap, there’s no way you would’ve sacrificed that $20.

My HS Chemistry teacher told us

My HS Chemistry teacher told us how to remember the periodic symbols for Silver and Gold-

If someone tried to steal your silver, you’d say A G, I lost my silver. But if someone tried to steal your gold, you’d say A U! Give me back my gold!

A chemistry triple whammy!

A chemistry triple whammy!

What did one gold atom say to the other?

Au

That last chemistry joke must have been bad, because there was no reaction!

Would you like another chemistry joke? 

I would too, but when I start to tell one all the people Argon!

I was in a chemistry class

I was in a chemistry class

We were dissolving a solid pill in water. While everyone else’s dissolved completely, mine had a few chunks left in the water. I asked the instructor what’s the problem, but she just told me “whatever it is, you dont have a solution”.

A chemistry professor posted a bonus question to an exam

A chemistry professor posted a bonus question to an exam:

Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let’s look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

  1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
  2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, “it will be a cold day in Hell before I go out with you”, and take into account the fact that I went out with her last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over.

The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore extinct . . . leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being, which explains why last night Teresa kept shouting “Oh, my God!”

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY “A”.

Bad chemistry puns

I’ve been looking for chemistry puns for a long time. But it seems the good ones Argon

 

I thought “hey, just try to enjoy the bad ones” but I couldn’t. The only thing I could do is Berium.

 

You might be thinking “I bet they aren’t that bad” but after you see the same ones as much as I saw them, they all just become such a Bore.

 

But let’s just hope these ones make you go HeHe.
