    Hell, considering the difficulty of some of the questions...25 correct is pretty damn good.

    37 of 50...

    Missed:
    1. Carbon = Organic Chemistry
    2. Gamma = 3rd angle in a triangle
    3. 8 = atomic number of oxygen
    4. Blastocyst = single cell after reproduction
    5. 1 newton per 200 grams = 5 meters per second squared
    6. F = Celsius
    7. Mars gravity = Mercury Gravity
    8. Titan moon with liquid
    9. Mass x Velocity = momentum
    10. e = 2.718
    11. mu = coefficient of friction
    12. scalene = bent triangle
    13. Nimbus = precipitating cloud



    Not bad for being out of school for 30 years. But to be honest, some were answered by process of elimination and not direct recall.
