Answer

The School for Champions is an online educational resource. I am sorry, but we are not hiring chemistry teachers.

You seem to have good qualifications for employment in chemistry. I am sure there are companies or schools in your area seeking people in biochemistry. It is always best to start looking for work near home and then work your way to other locations.

Do some research on companies doing chemical and biochemical work to see what opportunities there are. Also, you might check your college to see if they have any listings for teachers in other schools.

I hope these ideas help. Best wishes in finding a new job and in advancing in your career.

Chemistry basics are weak

Topic: Chemistry Basics

Question

February 3, 2014

I m studying in bsc 2nd and after graduation i want to appear for civil services with chemistry as optional but my basic is weak so give me techniques which help me

Khawaja - India

Answer

Our lessons on Chemistry will give you the basics, and that should help you in your school studies. It is also worthwhile to look at Physics to get an understanding of atoms and electrons.

With chemistry, it is good to know the major elements and their symbols. You also should learn the chemical formulas for common molecules, such as water, carbon dioxide, table salt, and sodium hydroxide, to name a few. Keeping a notebook with a list of things to memorize can be very helpful.

Best wishes in your studies and future career.

A polar molecule is one where the atoms are aligned such that one end of the molecule has more positive (+) charges and the other side has more negative (-) charges.

This results in special properties when mixing materials together. Mixing two polar materials together will result in a polar solution.
