@orthocresol Given it was answered by a comment and not generally useful, I would agree - delete.
@orthocresol Agreed effectively a dead question - delete.

Q: Can I maintain a constant relative humidity using saturated salt solution, at greater than atmospheric pressure?

JamesAt atmospheric pressure and between temperatures of ~0 to 100 °C, well known relationships between established humidity and given saturated salt solution are available. I.e. ASTM E104 describes this. I am looking at doing some experiments in high pressure, and potentially high temperature condit...

Q: Conversion of moles water vapor to moles hydrogen for my online homework

CassieOnline homework problem: How many moles of water vapor react to yield 151.52 moles of hydrogen? I did, $$x \text{ mol } \ce{H2O} = 151.52 \text{ mol }\ce{H2} \frac{1 \text{ mol } \ce{H2O}}{3 \text{ mol } \ce{H2}} = 50.51 \text{ mol } \ce{H2O}$$ The online homework system says it's wrong.

That’s indeed an oddity.
Well, content quality shouldn’t be judged based on votes alone. I don’t think the question as it stands deserves -14. Nor do I think the answer deserves +8. I think both Q and A are good enough to keep, perhaps not the best example of quality content, but it is a decent, useful Q&A.
Votes guide us towards identifying good content and bad content, but even when we find highly downvoted/upvoted questions/answers we still want to think about whether they are broadly useful.
