Why doesn't it accept gradient for slope? Otherwise, decent quiz. Out of interest, how many of the perfect numbers have you entered as possible answers?
Jun 14th, 2011 at 15:20 GMT
Thanks for the feedback. I added gradient, but that isn't commonly referenced in math. Also, that's funny you asked about the perfect numbers. It goes up to the seventh or eighth one, where the numbers are in the trillions!
Jun 15th, 2011 at 14:59 GMT
Does it matter whether the charge is 3+ or +3? I entered the former, and it didn't register. Also for the LHC I put Hadron Collider...love the biology though!
Jun 17th, 2011 at 17:45 GMT
Could you please specify whether you are asking for the closest star to the Earth or to the solar system? I kept trying Proxima Centauri.

It would be nice if someone with greater than high school knowledge of science did one of these
Jun 22nd, 2011 at 22:03 GMT
in England, long ago, a billion was a million million, although not used any more, known as an "English billion" it also has a value of 10^12, so this would be good as an alternative answer. absolute zero and PV=nRt i would call physics aswell, while they are used in chemistry they are really measures of volume, energy, time and pressure.
Jun 22nd, 2011 at 22:06 GMT
also c is speed of light in a vacuum, im not saying that should have to be types, but should maybe be the displayed answer

Can you accept CERN for large hadron collider?
Jul 27th, 2011 at 14:08 GMT
Good quiz, missed one or two obvious ones like Autotroph, but went well anyway!! :-)
Sep 5th, 2011 at 19:02 GMT
The energy storing compound one is confusing...could also be food, carbohydrates, fats, etc. There's probably a better way to ask about ATP. Also, for the question about the differences between plant and animal cells, it should be plastid, not plasmid. A plasmid is a circular piece of DNA like those in bacteria, while a plastid is an organelle like a chloroplast.
Sep 26th, 2011 at 20:53 GMT
ATP one is plain out wrong. ATP is a bus, not a storage facility. It is used immediately following its synthesis, if for storage then as fat, carbohydrate etc.

in the UK we use the ideal gas equation PV = NkT, so can you accept NkT as an answer.
Oct 2nd, 2011 at 17:09 GMT
I was a little bit thrown for a loop with the photosynthetic organisms question. Photosynthetic organisms are not the only type of autotrophs. This is kind of like saying "general term for football player" and expecting the answer of "athlete." Sure, football players are athletes, but football players aren't the only type of athletes.
Oct 2nd, 2011 at 21:27 GMT
@tsneller It depends on what you're trying to work out. pV=nRT is pressure times volume= number of moles times ideal gas constant times temperature, whereas pV=NkT is pressure times volume= number of molecules times Boltzmann constant times temperature. Certainly neither of them are British or American specific. However I agree that it should be an alternate answer.
Oct 3rd, 2011 at 21:43 GMT
There are autotrophs that are not photosynthetic.

Why didn't anyone get cube?
Oct 31st, 2011 at 23:22 GMT
@lood1234 CERN shouldn't be accepted because it's the name of the company and not the particle accelerator
Nov 6th, 2011 at 17:33 GMT
OnABoat999 I'm totally with you. I can understand not getting the mole of gas, or even the geometric series, but a cube!?
Nov 28th, 2011 at 00:12 GMT
Aluminum has no charge. All metals have zero charge. What you're refering to is the oxidation state number. But in the case of Aluminum it could also be +2 (for aluminum-iodide) or +1 (for aluminum-monoxide).

1 + 1/3 + 1/9 + 1/27 + ... = ? so 1 + 3/9 + 1/9 + 1/27 = ? so 1+ 9/27 + 3/27 + 1/27 = ? so 1 + 12/27 + 1/27 = ? so 1 + 13/27 = ? so 1 13/27 Problem 13/27=/=.5 13//27=0.4814814814814815

You need to accept 3.00 * 10^8 m/s.
Feb 4th, 2012 at 13:09 GMT
really surprised the math questions were so low. The square root of 1234321 shouldn't take long to get by trial and error--has to be about 1000 (1000^2 = 1000000) and has to end in 9 or 1.
Feb 13th, 2012 at 06:34 GMT
I tried dice instead of cube. Oops

Can the clue for pH be -log([H+])? (It's the concentration of the hydrogen ion that is having its log taken, not the ion itself.)

Yeah sure thanks!
