Chemistry with Melissa Maribel says:

Typo at 5:42 it should say 6.12 x 10^5 mg

Lil' T.J. says:

This still doesn't make sense to me

Jonathan Hernandez says:

im gonna fail my test. This didnt help much

Josh pizarro says:

Hello, I am still kinda confused on the unit conversions. Can you go over a problem like this "A pure compound has a density of 6.63 mg/mL. What is it's density in kg/L?
" It would be extremely helpful if you did this step by step on Sunday if you can. Thank you!

Rosalia says:

Hi Melissa, Im struggling on how you got 1.5l to 1.5mlx10^6 how do you covert that I'm looking at the metric system and I'm so lost

Jamie04 says:

Have a chem test tomorrow and I was so confused thank you so much!!

sterling blakely says:

How do you know the power ?

Megan Preston says:

This added more confusion that clearly any up. An explanation would be better than vague sentences or just saying that it is that way just “because”

Vanessa Valencia says:

I love you! Thank you !

KoruptOverseer says:

Chem is ez af I’m watching this for physics I didn’t need to know this for my class and my teacher was so trash I never learned this

destany says:

came here bc my teacher put it on google classroom.

Monica Lynne says:

I’m really good at math but unit conversion really confused me big time. Came across this video and I’ve never been so happy in my whole life. Thank you so much. You explained it so well and gave such an easy way to remember the meter system. New subbie here! 😁

cameron doyle says:

Thank you so much, I learned more in this 6:44 than 4 weeks in school 💯

Florence Quintana says:

Thank you for teaching us the tricks!

Diza Elbanbuena says:

Thank you so much you're such a good teacher, 😍 because of you I fall inlove to chemistry again. 😘

^how I remember the metric system

olga corona says:

Hi Melissa! I was referred to your videos and wow I am definitely learning now!! My question is, how do I know to go from nm to m to cm? or so on and so forth. I get how to solve the problem. But, how do I know when it's going to be more than one unit? Is there a chart that gives you the order to go from?

Jennie Motquin says:

This video made me more confused then ever! The beginning was helpful but doing the setup that way? Never would be accepted in my College Chemistry class. UGH

Felton Pross says:

hey Melissa, how did you get 10 to the 8th power nanometers for the third practice problem?

Siphokazi Figlan says:

This removed so much confusion that I had. It’s people like you that make the world a better place. I’m going to pass well because of you. Thank you
