Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is obviously not a test question. There are far more important terms and concepts in chemistry to be tested on than the historical perspective of it. I THINK it's because he coined the term "atom" and proposed the idea of an atom being a subunit so small that cannot be divided but makes up all of life. It was the first idea of what makes life and what's all around us.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@abb0t , I have taken online courses, and you would be surprised. Many multiple choice questions are written in this format. I have assumed the null hypothesis because there is a bias towards it, making it far more accurate than anything else.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm sorry if I have made incorrect assumptions @blondie16 . The sad truth is that at least 40% of questions here are for tests. It is hard to tell in fact  I have been desensitized to legitmate questions I guess. I used to spend a large portion of my time answering questions, until I realized the implications it had. I"m glad you found what you were looking for. :)
