Chemistry on Brilliant

Hey guys. I am really amazed at several of the wiki pages that have been written up, and am thankful for your contributions. We are getting close to be pushing out the first version of Chemistry on the site, and would like some help with a few more wiki pages.

The subtopics of fundamentals and Reaction Mechanics subtopics are mostly good, but the Chemical bonding and Organic Chemistry will need more work. The pages that need material are listed out in Needs writers. I would like to half that list of 20, before we release chemistry.

Let me know if I can help in any way.


For those of you who are interested in building out Chemistry on Brilliant, and would be willing to spend time writing up great wiki pages over the next month, we would appreciate if you help us by filling out the wikis listed here.

To make it easier for you to communicate with others as you're collaborating on these wikis, you can sign in to Brilliant chat and head over to the #chemistry channel. There, you will find other Chemistry enthusiasts and can bounce ideas with them!

Once these initial wikis are filled, we can look into adding more skills and placing these problems accordingly. With the community's help, we can get Chemistry on Brilliant!

Woohoo!

I have added to Aldehydes and Ketones. It is a very large topic in itself. So I will probably take days to complete that. Vishwak Srinivasan · 1 year, 10 months ago

@Anandhu Raj Certainly! That would be great!

You can also list the problems that you created for each wiki / skill in column H. Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

@Calvin Lin Sir, for organic chemistry, how could I insert bond line representations of molecules? (I can't download it from other sites and upload it to brilliant as many of them has copyright issues) Also sir, I will contribute questions of chemical equilibrium as it's wiki is almost complete.

@Calvin Lin sir if I share a problem how would it get rated?? Aditya Kumar · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Aditya Kumar This is a multi-step process. Right now, the focus is on writing up wikis. After that, we will look into adding problems across different skills, and figuring out what levels mean. This process allows us to ensure that when Chemistry is launched, the experience isn't "a bunch of empty pages" for people, which would just kill their engagement.

When we launch Chemistry, it will behave like any other topic. Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

@Calvin Lin Thank you sir. Chemistry has always been my weak link. Now I can improve. Aditya Kumar · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Aditya Kumar Haha, Nice. But I'm sure that I won't improve in chemistry, just because I don't want to improve in it. Swapnil Das · 1 year, 6 months ago

@Aditya Kumar Mine too :( Anandhu Raj · 1 year, 10 months ago

I could help , but I don't think I can make chemistry in english . Also , can you tell me how can I follow these chemistry problems after they are done ? Thoma Zoto · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Thoma Zoto That's alright, we still need people to read through the Wikis and provide feedback. It would be helpful for the creators to know that "this part needs further explanation" or "I don't quite understand what you mean here. Why does that work?".

When the chemistry topic is launched (hopefully in 2 months), you will be able to "Add Topics" for Chemistry. Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

I will love to contribute something on organic nomenclature, but I don't have a PC. I am waiting for these options to come to the app Swarupendra Nath Chakraborty · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Swarupendra Nath Chakraborty Awww, we're working on adding publication features to the apps, but that will take a while.

One way that you can contribute, is to help us review these wiki pages and provide feedback on areas to improve (Columns F, G, in the spreadsheet) Send me an email if you're interested in helping out :) Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

I will surely fill up many wiki's sir, but I will have exams this month, so I'll try contributing next month. Sravanth Chebrolu · 1 year, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Sravanth Chebrolu No worries, I understand. The Chemistry Wiki project will take a 1-2 months to organize, so help in August would also be appreciated. I will add you to the list, so that you can be updated :) Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

@Calvin Lin Thanks sir! Help will surely come in the next month. Sravanth Chebrolu · 1 year, 10 months ago
