5 Most Common Chemistry Jokes Every Chemistry Student Should Know

By: admin

There is a saying:

If you didn’t get the joke, you probably didn’t understand the science behind it. If this is the case, it’s a chance for you to learn a little chemistry.

For some students, chemistry is a blessing, for others it’s a nightmare. Generally speaking, chemistry lessons are a type of subject that catches students’ interests. It can influence them either completely or not at all. And unlike what students expect, chemistry teachers can’t do awesome chemistry experience every time while teaching. It’s essential for teachers to teach the subject well- in fact by adding some humor and chemistry jokes. Sure, there are many experiments that prove that jokes and humor attracts students to the subject and make the lesson easy to learn.

In this blog, we are going to discuss some of the popular jokes with explanation. These jokes have the power to make students laugh and help them learn something along the way.


Chemistry Joke 1

Two people Mr. A and Mr. B go into a bar. Mr. A order for an H2O. Mr. B says I’ll have an H20 too. Guess, what happened. Mr. B died.

Explanation – If you’re a chemistry teacher or student, you may know that H20 is the molecular formula for water. But, H2O2is the molecular formula for hydrogen peroxide, which kills if you drink. So, Mr. B died.


Chemistry Joke 2

Have you ever heard whether oxygen went on a date with potassium? Yes, they went it’s OK.

Explanation– Actually, the atomic symbol for oxygen is ‘O’ and for potassium is ‘K.’ So, they went on a date together. It’s OK.


Chemistry Joke 3

What do you see – a glass with half full or half empty? If you’re an optimist, you can see it half full whereas if you are a pessimist you can see it half empty. But a chemistry professor sees the glass completely full, half with liquid and half with air.

Explanation – In the chemistry language, the glass is always full of something – be it liquid, a solid or gas unless the atoms are removed and the entire thing is a vacuum.


Chemistry Joke 4

A photon books a hotel. He checks into it. The receptionist asks him if he needs help with his luggage. The photon replies, “No, I’m traveling light.”

Explanation– This may be related to a physics joke. A photon comes with a packet of light. It has zero mass. Not just does it literally travel light (the illuminating kind), but also travel light (as in not heavy).


Chemistry Joke 5

Why can people not have a trust on atoms? The answer is simple. Because they make up everything!

Explanation – As a chemistry expert you might know that atoms are the smallest pieces of matter. They male make up all of elements and molecules and proteins. In fact, they make up everything else available on this planet. They make up all that we can see. But, in the joke, it is suggested that the atoms lie so one should never trust them.

These are some of the most common Chemistry Jokes that make the subject simple and easy to learn for students.
