The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

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

This lesson explores the kinetic molecular theory and how it pertains to the properties of solids and liquids. You'll learn the properties of solids and liquids, discover the types of intermolecular attractions that occur between them and gain an understanding how phase changes happen.

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Gases

2. The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Gases

What makes a gas ideal? What types of characteristics do ideal gases have? In this lesson, we will discuss the many characteristics of gases and how knowing the microscopic properties of gas particles will help you understand the macroscopic properties of a gas.

Rate Constant and Rate Laws

3. Rate Constant and Rate Laws

Learn what the rate law is and how the rate constant relates to it. Learn what reaction order is and how to determine reaction order when given experimental data containing concentration and reaction rate.

Activation Energy and Catalysts

4. Activation Energy and Catalysts

Learn how to define activation energy and how it relates to a reaction's energy. Learn what an activated complex is and where it fits into an activation energy diagram. Discover how a catalyst works to change the activation energy of a reaction and what this means to metabolism in the body.

Reaction Mechanisms and The Rate Determining Step

5. Reaction Mechanisms and The Rate Determining Step

This lesson explores what a reaction mechanism is and how it relates to the speed of a reaction. You'll discover how to pinpoint the rate-determining step and learn how to write a rate law based on the rate-determining step.

E2 Elimination & Mechanism Reaction: Definition & Examples

6. E2 Elimination & Mechanism Reaction: Definition & Examples

This lesson focuses on one of the more important reactions in organic chemistry: E2. We'll look at some examples, zoom in for a closer look at the mechanism, then explore some of the stereochemical features of the reaction.
