Q: What is the mass, in grams, of 561 atoms of Oxygen?

A: 1.49e-20 grams. You can figure this out by dividing the amount of atoms (561), by Avogadro’s Number (6.02e-23). Then multiply that number by the Oxygen’s amount of atoms per mole (16).


Q: How do I steal a puppy? -Jos

A: Step 1- Locate a puppy, whether that be from an organization or an individual person. 

Step 2- Figure out the optimal time and location for the heist.

Step 3- Dress in unnoticeable, inconspicuous clothes that won’t draw attention.

Step 4- Go in quick, grab the little dog and its leash, then get out quick before anyone notices.

Step 5- Enjoy the puppy for the rest of your life, but be wary of other people trying to take your prize.


Q: How do I get into college?

A: If you want to get into college, the first thing you need to do is the most important: apply! There are many ways in which you can prepare to get into college. Always try your hardest in school and put effort into everything you do. When you don’t understand something or need help, ask questions! Go to tutoring and get the best possible grades you can. Study for and take the SAT or ACT.  Participate in extracurricular activities or sports, and earn community service hours. Form connections with your teachers (they can give you letters of recommendation, an important part of the college application process). When you write your essays, be your authentic self. Never give up on looking forward to achieving your goals. Talk to your school counselor, teachers, and other mentors/adults, because they might know something you don’t. Look into scholarships, and see if you’re eligible. Have an idea of what you’re passionate about so that you can look at colleges, whether that be local, out of state, or community college, best suited for your career interest.
