  1. Chlorine in tap or swimming pool water, I should rather say. Is this determinable by titrations? E.g. silver nitrate titrations? If not, then how is it determinable? Also, would shampoo or soap have any effects on the aforementioned chlorine? Such as cause it to form a compound or something or other. Thank you.
  2. Maybe try rephrasing it to something including intent and consequence? That would make it seem less biased, I think. Yes, that's the problem. I'm dropping the second one due to what you said, I can't see any way of fixing it. I guess that for the first one I would just replace 'favor' with 'support'. I'm not entirely sure..
  3. Is this question all right, or is it too vague or subjective? To what extent did the French nobility favor the Revolution? Or I was thinking: Was the French nobility betrayed by a revolution which it had helped to create? But it sounds like there's something wrong with it, I just can't figure out what. I think the first one's better, but I would like to know what everyone else thinks ^^
  4. Much thanks to all of you ^^
  5. Do they care about the subject of your E.E. in correlation with the profession you aspire to have? I want to be a doctor, but I would like to do my E.E. on a history topic. If I apply to universities, in the U.K. or the U.S., would they take this into account and use it against me (by asserting that I don't have a passion for medicine or some such B.S.?)
  6. If you do a crappy essay, get facts wrong, leave facts out etc. and the examiner is familiar with the topic, they're more likely to spot your errors. On the other hand even if they're not familiar, they might spot your errors. Really, if you research it properly and write a high quality EE (without errors, invented facts etc.!), it's no big deal what the examiner knows. It's only if you get something a bit wrong and by some chance they don't realise that you might possibly do a bit better. However EE titles are sent to 'specialists' in your EE area, to my knowledge. So even if you did one on a
  7. I've decided to base my EE topic on French history, during the Age of Absolutism, and so I decided to center my topic either around Louis XIV and his use of absolute power ..... or...... the fall of the monarchy during the Revolution. But the French Revolution is a very popular subject in history, so the EE marker may know a lot more about this topic. What do you think? I'm interested in both, so that's out of the question. Although I may have a lot more knowledge about the Revolution/fall of monarchy topic. I can't decide. Is it true that if the marker has little knowledge of a topic, you wil
  8. Cause I sure do, ALL THE TIME. I wonder if it's hereditary, because my mom and her dad are exactly the same as me, we end up sitting and staring into space for huge amounts of time, just thinking... about everything. How much do you guys think? How do you stop?!?
  9. Racism has been around for millennia, but what with the globalization that has been going on for a while now everything is changing. There is the view that the kind of racism you see on the streets has been increasing over the years as cultures come closer together in a physical sense but clash due to racial and cultural differences. An example would be the clash between the French and the Arabs in the novel The Stranger by Albert Camus, which was written in the 40s. But when immigrants conceive and raise children on foreign land such as the United States, those children may adopt the culture
  10. Hi there, I am a citizen of both the U.K. and Canada, though not America. Does this make it more difficult for me to be accepted into universities for premed there? Does race/skin color etcetera play a role in uni acceptance, or in citizenship or green card obtention? What about financial aid?
  11. Please explain what is/was difficult about the topic(s). Thank you.
  12. Hi there, I would like to know if it is considered unethical by the extended essay markers to do an experiment that would inflict harm upon or kill bacteria?
  13. Hi there. WHen I was younger I used to read a lot about the French Revolution and the aristocracy of eighteenth-century France, so I'm already quite familiar with/interested in these subjects. Having second thoughts about doing this for my EE now, though. I've thought about the relationship between the nobility and monarchy, the effects of the Enlightenment on the nobles' way of thinking, the debauchery of court life (the last one seeming, for some reason I can't quite figure out, dodgy.) "How did the rise of absolutism in France affect the relationship between the nobility and the monarchy?".
