1. Understanding the Relationships between Elements, Molecules & Compounds
Everything on Earth is made of atoms, and sometimes they combine to form new groups of atoms. The sky is the limit when it comes to these combinations, which account for the vast number of things we find in our natural world.
2. Creating Mixtures by Combining Elements & Compounds
Do you really know what's in your tap water? It's not just water - it's a mixture of many different things. In fact, most things are mixtures of different elements and compounds that are physically joined together.
3. Creating Solutions by Combining Elements & Compounds
When elements and compounds physically combine, we get mixtures. But sometimes we can't tell just by looking at something that it's a mixture because the components are so well mixed. When this happens, we have solutions.
4. Chemical Bonds I: Covalent
Mom always said that sharing is caring. This lesson will explore how electrons affect the chemical reactivity of atoms and specifically the merits of sharing electrons.
5. Chemical Bonds II: Ionic
Did you know that the scientific name for table salt is sodium chloride? Find out how sodium and chlorine atoms come together to form your favorite seasoning.
6. Chemical Bonds III: Polar Covalent
Are you confused about how you can tell what kind of bond two atoms will form? This lesson will help you understand the difference between polar and nonpolar covalent bonds as well as how to predict how two atoms will interact.
7. Chemical Bonds IV: Hydrogen
This lesson defines and discusses important concepts behind hydrogen bonding. You'll learn when and why these bonds occur and which atoms are often involved.
8. Basic Solutions in Chemistry: Properties & Examples
Basic solutions are very important components of many different chemical reactions. This lesson provides an introduction to bases, basic solutions, and their properties. Several examples of basic solutions in action are also provided.
9. Capillary Action of Water: Definition & Examples
Capillary action is an important ability of water to move through other materials. Water is not the only liquid that can do this, but its properties make it better at capillary action than most other substances.
10. Conversion Factor in Chemistry: Definition, Formula & Practice Problems
After finishing this lesson, you will be able to define and describe conversion factors and explain how to use conversion factors to convert units in chemistry problems.
11. Density: Definition, Formula & Practice Problems
In this lesson, you'll learn about density, the way in which density can be calculated from mass and volume, and that density of substances are constant. You'll get to calculate densities of various materials in different situations.
12. Glycosidic Bond: Definition & Formation
In this lesson, we'll learn what glyosidic bonds are and how they form. We'll see that glycosidic bonds come in different types (O-linked and N-linked), and examples of each will be given. Lastly, we'll learn where glycosidic bonds are commonly found in living organisms.
13. What Is an Ion?
Learn what an ion is and how it forms. We will look at some common ions and get to know the terms for the two types of ions. Take the quiz at the end to see how well you understand the lesson.
14. What is Melting Point? - Definition, Range & Determination
What makes things melt? Why do some substances melt all at once, while others seem to take forever? And how do you measure the exact temperature at which something melts? We'll answer these questions as we explore an important physical property of a compound: its melting point.
