Fe is iron
@Tom: Yes. Yes it is.
Hardy har har. Pretty clever
sp2 hybridization on the Fe-O bonds is erroneous!!!!!!!
I… love iron ferrite. It’s like Mars. I… love Mars.
WTH TOM… of course Fe is iron, that’s because iron was previously known as ferrum (latin)… also, you might know that a ferris wheel is named after a device used in iron works, by oh yes, a ferris is an iron worker… FE dumbass.
tom, you fool. ferrous is another name for iron and is what you call it in a compound. i.e. ferrous oxide
@Tom: U r stupid
Fe was originally “ferrous”
Look it up.
hahahaha Tom is a little behind the game.
Good picture though!
Ferrous is the latin adjective for Iron, jackass.
THe pic is awesome
Tom, i think you’ve missed the point. Fe (aka Iron) is not properly called “Iron” in a compound. It is referred to as either Ferric or Ferrous depending on it’s charge.
The pun here being an exchange between “Ferrous” and “Ferris”
Tom, you’re a moron. Ferrous is the original name for Iron. Do some research.
Haha. I feel like a nerd. :(
ROFL, that is so awesome. I’m so showing this to my Chem teacher tomorrow.
Fe is iron, but Ferrous is used when talking about a certain iron ion, so it’s true.
Tom, Fe is iron, but the Latin root is ferrum. Try not to be smart on the internet. Odds are, there is someone out there that knows you are wrong.
tom lrn to ferrous
gb2 chemestry faggot
Sorry it took me so long to clear out the comment moderation queue.
I rofled my waffle while lofling my snofl
Why do the irons only have 1 lone pair, shouldn’t they have two?!
And those two at the bottom! They have three single bonds and a double bond! That’s TEN electrons!! TOOO MAAAAANY OH NOOOOOO!!!!!
Oh yah, and Tom, screw you. In fact, for that comment, I hope you burn. I hope you burn for a long, painful, horrifying period of time. I hope you learn to RUE THE DAY you made that comment. I hope you know you broke your mom’s heart, Tom, you SOULESS BASTARD!
Seriously guys, chill…
All the comments at Tom are probably my fault for not clearing the mod queue earlier. For that, I apologize, Tom.
Hey where did you get this from???
@pastorlenny: Same place where all funny comes from. Internets.
TOM, YOU’RE A DIRTY, DIRTY WHORE
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY.
BUT A PEOPLE ARE PISSED AT YOU.
BY THE WAY, IRON IS HARD, DUMBASS.
WOW WHAT A RETARD.
Tom you tool, jeez!
Almost as funny as the OP all this Tom-bashing!
whats so funny about a iron wheel,lame
Tom, you made baby Hitler cry
You heartless tyrant!!
I just accidently the periodic table
Hah. Made me laugh, it did.
with that O inside, it just looks to me like fool’s gold.
you guys just got trolled
i love tom… toms great
lets all be honest aswell, fe IS iron ;)
Epic troll Tom, Epic troll
Tom’s a pretty classy guy. He’s obviously someone to which you couldn’t hold a candle, jack. Give him a bre
Ha. Not bad.
I’m not quite sure… is the content of this page important because of the ferrous wheel, or Tom’s successful troll?
Thumbs-up, either way!
Actually… Ash Frog, it is Ferrous or Ferric depending on the oxidation state of the iron. You can have a compound in which Iron has an oxidation state of +2 or +3. When the Oxidation state of Iron is +2 it is Ferrous such as in FeCl2 or Ferrous Chloride. When Iron’s oxidation state is +3 it is Ferric, such as FeCl3 or Ferric Chloride. The ultimate point I’m trying to get at here is that Tom is a dumbass and completely missed the joke, and that I am way nerdier than all you bitches.
I thought the joke was going to be: “Iron Man.”
Shut up and leave Tom alone jeez. Humans make mistakes. Stop flaming him for one petty mistake. It makes you happy that you’re smarter than someone doesn’t it?
That’s photoshopped, that compound doesn’t exist.
What the hell tom !
How old are you ? like 21 or something ?
Who doesnt know this stuff ?? wtf tom ?
I’m pretty sure Tom just stated a fact the Fe was iron he was not asking a question you guys are insame.
To Anon: Please learn to spell before sending people back to CHEMISTRY. You may want to consider a English or grammar course.
MAH FERROUS WHEEL GOES SOI SOI SOI
Anyway, why is everyone pissed at Tom? He just said “Fe is iron” and he’s right.
Just to give tom a short reprieve, this is directed towards anon. The ferris wheel was named after George Ferris Jr. The iron worker thing is a coincidence. George Ferris was the engineer who designed it for the Chicago world’s fair.
Oxygen can’t have that many bonds.
Actually oxygen can have that many bonds. It could be ionised sufficiently, or could form dative covalent bonds with the iron. Learn to chemistry.
Shouldn’t “Learn to chemistry” be “Learn to DO chemistry?”
Learn to grammar. :P
Hehe. At first, I thought is said: “Ferrel Weasel”. I thought the spokes at the bottom were whiskers.
But you don’t draw a covalent bonding structure for a metallic compound.
i dont think it’s right but i dont mean it’s wrong!
Whether or not it’s chemically correct, i think the idea is still funny… and I’m a chem major.
“But you don’t draw a covalent bonding structure for a metallic compound.”
Which is why we have oxygen in there, making it not a metallic compound. Also, Iron is a transition metal if I’m not mistaken, meaning it doesn’t work like lithium or Magnesium or w/e.
@ Devereux: that adds a whole new layer, haha.
Also–this was great!
Then RTFM and lern2meme
the oxygen has 12 electrons on it… which even a chem retard knows is too much, learn to chemistry before you tell others to do so
I take care of small animals and as a hobby get involved with your topic and similar ones. I gotta say this is quite the eye opner for me. Thanks!
Not sure that this is true) but thanks
>>Shouldn’t “Learn to chemistry” be “Learn to DO chemistry?”
Actually, it is “learn to chemistry”. It’s internet slang.
you guys really do suck…
Er… when I posted my response to Tom way back, I couldn’t see any other responses, so I just assumed I would be the first. Sadly, I was mistaken, sorry Tom!
hmm, i wouldnt ride an iron ferris wheel that has a bond with oxygen i’d be rusty and dangerous O.o
Right on! Good post.
It’s ridiculous. I know this isn’t the point of the drawing, but, there are way too many electrons on that oxygen. The octet rule says that there have to be 8 electrons, and here there are like…12. Just turn the double bonds into single bonds. And that’s true for the 2 Fe atoms the oxygen is connected to too. It might not make the picture look as good, but it’d be correct.
oh wow… i just learned this… who thought of this lolz
I want to kill myself now. Really, that is quite terrible.
I’m pretty sure…Tom knows what it is…and is just stating a fact.
I haven’t seen so much fish in the net before !
oxygen with 4 bonds and 2 lone pairs? really?
lrn2internet all of you
