Students Entertain with a “P-Chem” Christmas Carol

Dr. Anne Kondo of the Department of Chemistry reports that her Physical Chemistry students entertained her with a chemistry-themed Christmas carol on the last day of class.

Written by chemistry major Ms. Laura Fox, the carol is sung to the tune of Jingle Bells.

A PCHEM Carol

(Dashing through the snow…)
Colligative properties
Are exactly what we need
For this time of year
When news of snow is all we hear
Solute is applied
Such as sodium chloride
Freezing point depression takes place
So no one slips on their face

Chorus: (Jingle bells, jingle bells…):
Physical Chemistry
Answers, “Hey, how come?”
You never cease to puzzle me and make my mind go numb
Physical chemistry
The end if nearing fast
I sure hope Dr. Kondo’s nice and lets me pass the class

(Dashing through the snow…)
An exothermix process
Can cuase lots of distress
When in an adiabatic boundary
Where heat cannot go free
Temperature goes up
Causing k to go up too
And the rate of the reaction increases
And the system may go boom

Chorus (Jingle bells, jingle bells…):
Physical Chemistry
Answers, “Hey, how come?”
You never cease to puzzle me and make my mind go numb
Physical chemistry
The end if nearing fast
I sure hope Dr. Kondo’s nice and lets me pass the class
