Ch 7: AP Chemistry: Phase Changes for Liquids and Solids: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Phase Changes for Liquids and Solids chapter of this AP Chemistry Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about phase changes for liquids and solids. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the phase changes for liquids and solids theories and methods required in a typical AP chemistry course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other AP chemistry work.
  • Identify the phase changes for liquids and solids concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our AP chemistry tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn phase changes for liquids and solids and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding kinetic molecular theory, phase diagrams, evaporation, sublimation, heating curves, unit cells or any other phase changes for liquids and solids topic

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

1. The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

The Kinetic Molecular Theory (KMT) is a model based on a series of postulates that explain the behavior of matter. Explore KMT, including its postulates, and learn about the properties of solids and liquids, intermolecular forces and phase changes.

Phase Diagrams: Critical Point, Triple Point and Phase Equilibrium Boundaries

2. Phase Diagrams: Critical Point, Triple Point and Phase Equilibrium Boundaries

Discover what a phase diagram is and how it graphs a substance's states of matter using temperature and pressure. Learn how to define and locate phase equilibrium lines, triple points, critical points, and supercritical fluids on phase diagrams.

Phase Change: Evaporation, Condensation, Freezing, Melting, Sublimation & Deposition

3. Phase Change: Evaporation, Condensation, Freezing, Melting, Sublimation & Deposition

Matter exists in four states: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. There are six changes of phase that occur among these states. Learn more about the different kinds of phase change, their examples, and the energies involved in these changes.

Phase Changes and Heating Curves

4. Phase Changes and Heating Curves

Phase changes occur when a substance changes from one state, such as solid, liquid, gas, or plasma, to another, based on certain conditions. Learn about the six phase changes--freezing and melting, sublimation and deposition, vaporization and condensation--and understand the heating curve.

Crystal Structures and the Unit Cell

5. Crystal Structures and the Unit Cell

Depending on their chemical makeup, crystalline substances form varying crystal shapes and structures. Learn about the four types of crystals and explore examples.

Boiling Definition in Chemistry

6. Boiling Definition in Chemistry

In this lesson we will learn what boiling means in chemistry and how it changes depending on atmospheric conditions. We will also learn how the boiling point changes based on what element is being boiled.

Heat of Fusion & Heat of Vaporization: Definitions & Equations

7. Heat of Fusion & Heat of Vaporization: Definitions & Equations

Heat of fusion and heat of vaporization are measures of energy required to change the state of matter. Learn the definition of each measure and the equations required to calculate them.

Phase Diagram of Water vs Other Substances: Differences & Meaning

8. Phase Diagram of Water vs Other Substances: Differences & Meaning

Phase diagrams are tools used to demonstrate how individual substances appear across various pressures and temperatures. Study the phase diagram of water as an example, and compare it to other substances to understand the implications of pressure and temperature changes on substance phases.
