Major Components of the Atmosphere

2. Major Components of the Atmosphere

Our atmosphere is a complex mixture of many different gases. In this video lesson you will identify the major components of Earth's atmosphere as well as how much there is of each.

The Ozone Layer: Importance and the Harmful Effects of Thinning

3. The Ozone Layer: Importance and the Harmful Effects of Thinning

In this lesson, you will learn the importance of the ozone layer and how it is depleted. You will also study the research and policy that has been instrumental in its recovery.

Coordinate Covalent Bond: Definition & Examples

4. Coordinate Covalent Bond: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, learn about coordinate covalent bonds and the compounds that contain them. The lesson will also offer an understanding of how to interpret formulas of coordination compounds and deduce the number of coordinate covalent bonds present.

What is Oxygen? - Formula & Levels

5. What is Oxygen? - Formula & Levels

Breathe! You've just processed another dose of oxygen. Learn about some different forms of oxygen critical to life on Earth, particularly dioxygen and ozone.

Haloalkane Isomers: Definition, Names & Structure

6. Haloalkane Isomers: Definition, Names & Structure

The focal point of this lesson will be on a class of organic compounds called haloalkanes. Upon completion we will understand how they are defined, their general structure, and how to correctly name them.
