Ripper is right, you don't want to inflict more damage by adding a strong acid/base to a spill. Yes, it would neutralize it, but in the process more damage will be done than good. So, by adding a weak acid to a strong base, you form a salt and water, harmless; while with strong acid using a weak basic salt, we form a salt and a weak acid, which in this case is carbonic acid, this decomposes to CO2 and water.

Just. Relax. There is nothing wrong with your personality. So you have character flaws! That's what makes you interesting. Just go with it. Figure it out as you go. Your own Identity and strenght of mind will eventually start to show on its own course. Seriously. The more you worry about it, the more unhappy you'll be.

Absolutely Love: "I feel lost without something to keep me stable" ♥ So Beautiful: "I only love things when I get self-pleasure from these things. When I loved a past girlfriend, it was because I told myself over and over to let her be free without feeling jealousy. I only catch glimpses of the true depth of things, such as relationships or philosophies or works of art, in this same manner, and often feel pain because I suspect depth in most things, though I do not often perceive it." ♥ Wow: "I merely absorb information without adding anything of my own to it. I take this information and run with it without thought. I am practically incapable of solving any of my problems on my own." ♥ Love It: "I am afraid that with my weak mind life will trap me and I will never achieve any sort of growth or be happy or have the strength to allow my self to guide my actions." ♥ The Road Not Taken Poet: Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

One thing is to read and get tapes or DVD's of people that can show you other things to do, and ways to think. Go to a self help section of a book store. You well may get an idea you never had, and come to respect your own way. Check out the Bible in the book of John, or Matthew.§

If you used a strong one it would give a violent reaction. So you use more of the weak one for a less violent reaction.

Zeph Originally Answered: Biochemistry-amino acid help?
The following statements are true: 3) The R group of lysine is not chiral; therefore, the only stereocenter arises from the main amidoacid chain. 4) Ser has an alcohol group and tyrosine has a phenol group. Both groups can hydrogen bond and their dipole moment is not cancelled out; therefore they are polar. 5) It's possible; take a look at: http://www.uic.edu/classes/phar/phar332/Clinical_Cases/aa%20metab%20cases/PKU%20Cases/main_route.htm 6) Leucine has a nonpolar side-chain; therefore it can't hydrogen bond The following are not true because: 1) glycine is not chiral 2) proline is neutral at pH 7.4: +H2NCHRCO2- this is a neutral zwitterion ion. 7) This one is trick question because methionine is thiol ether (R-S-R) but not a thiol (R-SH) where R stands for an alkyl; therefore it is false.

Which of the following about amino acids are true? 1. proline has an overall charge at physiological pH (7.4) 2. Asn and Gin are polar amino acids 3. Phe can undergo oxidization to from Tyr 4. The form of glycine used by the human body is D-glycine 5. isoleucine has more than one stereo center (chiral center) 6. the Ala side chain does not form hydrogen bonds with other amino acids 7. methlonine is a thiol
