It’s been so long, Honda, I had to look it up.
Yeah, I think Stoichiometry is the CLOSEST POINT between molecular chemistry and theoretical physics and mathematics.
It depends on ideal forms. The system it’s working is a theoretical perfect closed system where no mass is wasted….
…and you really just have to trust that it’s true because there’s no ideal closed environments… there’s no ideal gas… and what you get is a “close enough to be functional” answer, while using all this extreme precision.
I remember it now. Being part of Classical Science (Stoichiometry, pre 20th Century… pre 19th Century…), it was hard for me to accept it completely because I had already been exposed (mostly through hobby reading) to quantum mechanics and relativity and complexity theories.
I kept arguing with the chemistry teacher. “But but but…” and all he could say is, “I know, I know but you just have to deal with it because we haven’t connected the two yet very well and we might never be able to”.
…in a vacuum
…with no visible electricity
…and no gravity…
…and everybody is PERFECTLY spaced apart in a Brownian motion (ideal gas)
..and no DJ
But at least with molecular chemistry, they have arms and legs… sometimes…
