I don’t know what squamous cuboidals are but Sandra has been going through terminology that she has learnt for anatomy.
And every now and then she says things like “Squamous Cuboidal”.
I go “Exuse me?”
She says “Squamous cuboidal.”
I go “Oh. Just checking…”
I did try and help her understand ionisation; and that an acid is a proton donor.
A what? A proton donor….
What’s that. Thats something that is giving out protons to all and sundry.
Oh. And why is an acid a proton donor?
Because when ionised it produced the H+ ion.
Well, Hydrogen is made of one electron and one proton. So if it becomes a anion then it no longer has an electron. And therefore is just a proton?
Just a proton?
So something that when something happens to it, releases H+, is a proton donor, is an acid.
Could you explain that again?
