We are doing this in science at the moment as well as formulae writing! I was so happy when I could get using my scientific knowledge! =)

Good teaser, though I had to look up the periodic table.

Wish I would have been patient enough to look up the FORMULA the combination would have caused...I got to thinking about that so much that I didn't even THINK about looking it up on the periodic table. I love it when a teaser makes me go in a different direction then the author may have originally intended. tee hee.

I knew that it was the periodic table letters, but I thought that Co was carbon monoxide. Wonder what you would get out of that mix...

Actually, CO is carbon monoxide, but Co is cobalt. (It makes a huge difference if the second letter is capital or lowercase)

CO vs. Co does make a BIG DIFFERENCE. Also, the caps weren't necessary, and didn't do any good (rather harm). Overall good teaser. This does NOT require Scientific knowledge at all. The PT is available to anyone. Understood by anyone who can read!

Anyone who's passed 8th grade should be able to do this without looking at a periodic table or writing anything down... =P

Fun teaser tho ^_-

It gave it away too much when you said "What does it spell?"

You should have just plainly stated what happens when you mix these chemicals? Or something along those lines...

I like it though, good work.

If you look through some of my other teasers you will see that I dont set out to have the hardest teasers on site. I set out to have a mix of easy, medium and hard. By asking what these spell it gives a bit of help to those who either do not have a great understanding of science, or who are a little younger. By being able to solve a science teaser it gives the confidence to go on and try others, which will then broaded further knowledge and understanding, even if it is by reading the answer rather than by solving the teaser.
