Ch 9: AP Chemistry: Solutions: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Solutions chapter of this AP Chemistry Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about solutions. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the properties and calculations of solutions required in a typical AP chemistry course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other AP chemistry work.
  • Identify the solutions 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 about solutions and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding rate of dissolution, solubility curves, molarity and molality, Raoult's Law, colligative properties or any other solutions topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their solutions unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in AP chemistry
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about solutions simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live AP chemistry tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about solutions on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

The Rate of Dissolution: Factors and Definition

1. The Rate of Dissolution: Factors and Definition

Learn what dissolution is and the factors that affect the rate of dissolution, such as temperature, surface area, polarity and pressure. Learn what miscible and immiscible mean in regards to liquids.

Solutions, Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

2. Solutions, Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

Learn what a solution is and how it is formed. Learn how to express the concentration of a solution in terms of molarity, molality and mass percent. Discover the differences between an electrolyte and a nonelectrolyte.

Solubility and Solubility Curves

3. Solubility and Solubility Curves

Learn what solubility is as well as the definitions of 'saturated,' 'unsaturated' and 'supersaturated.' Learn how to determine the solubility of a substance in water by using a solubility curve. Discover the effects of pressure and temperature on the solubility of liquids, solids and gases.

Solubility of Common Salts: Predicting Reaction Outcomes

4. Solubility of Common Salts: Predicting Reaction Outcomes

Ever wondered why some salts dissolve in water and others don't? In this lesson you will learn about some simple salt solubility rules. Using these rules, you will be able to predict the products of many chemical reactions.

Calculating Molarity and Molality Concentration

5. Calculating Molarity and Molality Concentration

Learn the abbreviations and meaning of molarity and molality. Then apply what you have learned by going over some sample calculations with given concentrations.

Calculating Dilution of Solutions

6. Calculating Dilution of Solutions

Learn what a solution is and how to properly dilute a new solution from a stock solution. Learn the dilution equation that combines molarity, the volume of stock solution and desired solution to determine how much stock solution is needed for the new solution.

Colligative Properties and Raoult's Law

7. Colligative Properties and Raoult's Law

Learn how vapor pressure and osmotic pressure are colligative properties. Learn Raoult's Law and how to use it to determine the vapor pressure of a solution. Learn the equation for determining osmotic pressure and how to use it to determine the molar mass of a substance.

Using Colligative Properties to Determine Molar Mass

8. Using Colligative Properties to Determine Molar Mass

In this lesson, we will explore the effect of colligative properties on a solution. We will learn how to calculate freezing point depression and see how it can be used to calculate the molar mass of an unknown substance.

Weak Electrolyte: Definition & Examples

9. Weak Electrolyte: Definition & Examples

Electrolytes are very useful, from combating dehydration to aiding in battery function. Learn about a certain type of electrolyte called the weak electrolyte. Don't forget to test your knowledge by taking a quiz at the end of this lesson.

The Solubility of Gases in a Liquid

10. The Solubility of Gases in a Liquid

In this video lesson, you will learn what solubility is and the factors that affect gas solubility. We will use real-life examples to illustrate the importance of understanding solubility. A quick quiz will then test our new knowledge.
