October 22 2011 ACT Science Discush

<p>Investigate the science section</p>

<p>I’ll start: it was awful.</p>

<p>really? i thought it was fairly easy compared to other ones</p>

<p>this one seemed harder than all of the other science tests i’ve taken. i had to guess on the last 8 or so because i didnt finish</p>

<p>much easier than september</p>

<p>what forms did everyone have?</p>

<p>71a you guys?</p>

<p>i had 71a as well</p>

<p>Was the voltage at which the Diode was most conducive to electricity at 0.80V?</p>

<p>AGGH! Yes, I remember that one. I had to guess–that one required outside knowledge. Come on ACT!</p>

<p>i’ve never taken physics, and there were two physics passages that seemed to require a little outside knowledge</p>

<p>Although knowing what a genus is is probably considered “basic” biology, it threw me off that a passage required that knowledge.</p>

<p>same with the “invasive species” question. I knew the answer because i’m in AP Bio, but if i wasn’t in that class i wouldn’t have known it</p>

<p>Can anyone verify my question about the 0.80V? Lol</p>

<p>I agree with 0.80, and it didn’t require outside knowledge.</p>

<p>I’m sorry Calculi. I remember the question you’re referring to but I can’t remember the answer. I think that .8 on the Voltage axis related to a low point on the Y axis for the curve it asked about, but I could be completely wrong…</p>

<p>Also, the question that asked at what volume (I think volume, maybe another unit) would the solution be neutral was surprising. I knew the answer, but I almost didn’t make the connection between the graph and knowing that a neutral pH is 7. Again, some outside knowledge.</p>

<p>.80, it didn’t require outside knowledge.
This science section was far easier than September, I’m pulling for a 33 on this one.</p>

does -2 have a chance for 35 or 34?</p>

<p>what about -3?
i haven’t taken many science act tests—any help is appreciated. I’ve looked at the pdf’s but I think curves depend on the test. So, what do you guys think about this one?</p>

<p>Volume was between 19 and 21</p>

<p>and if you doubled molarity—was it less and less?</p>
