Puzzle 37 Solution

Take note of the first letters of the italicised words and you will get the first goddess, Artemis.

Next, note that the statements are either Physics or Chemistry statements. classify them according to physics and chem. (Bolded statements are physics statements)

Electric potential of a point is the work done by external force in moving a unit positive charge from infinity to that point.
Reduction of a primary amide using LiAlH4 in dry ether gives a primary amine.

Condensation polymerisation is the combination of monomers with the elimination of small molecules.

For an object undergoing uniform circular motion, speed of the body is constant but velocity is not.
Diffraction is the bending of waves through an aperture or around an obstacle
When charging a capacitor, the energy does not increase instantaneously.
Eddy currents are induced currents circulating in solid conductors when there is a change in flux linkage.

Metals emit electrons when electromagnetic waves of sufficiently high frequency are incident on their surfaces.

Chlorine is a stronger oxidising agent than iodine.
Inertia is the property of a body that resists change in its state of rest or motion.

Simple harmonic motion is the motion of a body whose acceleration is directly proportional to its distance from a fixed point, and is always directed towards that point.
Le Chatelier's Principle states that when a system in equilbrium is disturbed, the equilibrium will shift to annul the effect of the change.

Now, the hint is that chemistry is associated with long and draggy (ie a dash) and physics is associated with short and to the point (ie a dot). By replacing physics statements with a dot and chemistry statements with a dash, we get

.- / - / .... / . / -. / .-

Decoding in morse code, we get the next goddess, Athena.
