Uhh , regarding the news that , despite the absence of severe
injury ,”no good intention” was attributed to the acid thrower:
was it typical to assume some form of chivalry was at play in
the acid-chucker’s mind?Perhaps he was expected to leave the tumbler at the scene , labelled as to it’s contents and molarity?
1) Molarity! What a beautiful word:

molar concentration, M
concentration – the strength of a solution; number of molecules of a substance in a given volume
2)”was it typical to assume some form of chivalry was at play in
the acid-chucker’s mind?”
