>be senior ME in undergrad working on capstone design project with other senior ME students
>half are chinks that can't speak english, the other two are CAD peons
>none of the 4 have had more than one transient internship
>think they equalized the teams by grades and because of my perfect GPA was punished with the inheritance of shitGPA literal calculators (who can't even get that right most of the time)
>as such, they are ME students at a top 30 school about to graduate and don't know how a lead screw works or is pronounced, despite us all taking the same course on mechanisms

When did engineering become as braindead of a field as some of the humanities? I wouldn't hire any of these kids, even for minimum wage. Do they just "take the summer off" and not try to apply their knowledge at all?

Good morning /sci/, who feels like flexing their inorganic chemistry muscles a little?

I am a non-chemist trying to make uranyl nitrate ($UO_{2}(NO_{3})_{2}$) by dissolving uraninite ($UO_{2}$) in nitric acid. The dissolution was successful, now I need to isolate my desired compound. In case you're wondering, I want it because it's fluorescent.

Here's what I have done so far:

- Dissolved the ore in 65% nitric acid
- Removed insoluble minerals
- Precipitated alkaline earths using sulfate (This concentrated a lot of the radioactivity in the precipitate)
- Precipitated the uranium using ammonia (forming insoluble ammonium diuranate)
- Filtered and washed the precipitate
- Redissolved the uranium using nitric acid
- Let the solution dry in air for months, losing interest in it for a while

The solution crystallized partially, which is where I got pic related. Both the solution and the crystals are emitting a considerable amount of beta-radiation, indicating the presence of $^{210}Pb$.

I have access to mineral acids, hardware store grade solvents and very little glassware. Does anyone want to suggest a next step? Thank you very much!

Input go in.
Input get calculated into output
Output go out.
When will /sci/ become redpilled, and realize that the brain is essentially just a black-box with no free will whatsoever?
