Ch 12: Glencoe Chemistry - Matter And Change Chapter 12: States of Matter

About This Chapter

The States of Matter chapter of this Glencoe Chemistry - Matter and Change companion course helps students learn the essential chemistry lessons of the states and properties of matter. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the States of Matter textbook chapter.

How it works:

  • Identify the lessons in Glencoe Chemistry's States of Matter chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the solid, liquid and gas properties you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, re-watch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • Kinetic molecular theory
  • Dalton's law of partial pressures
  • Diffusion and effusion
  • Pressure units and conversions
  • Dipole-dipole and ion-dipole forces
  • Van der Waals forces
  • Crystal structure parts and the unit cell
  • Properties of fluids
  • Phase changes

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Gases

1. 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.

Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures: Calculating Partial & Total Pressures

2. Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures: Calculating Partial & Total Pressures

In this lesson, you will learn how gases behave when they are mixed together and how to use Dalton's law of partial pressures to calculate partial and total pressures of gases. You will also learn how to use this information to explain how to find the partial pressure of a gas collected over water.

Diffusion and Effusion: Graham's Law

3. Diffusion and Effusion: Graham's Law

Have you ever been in a room where someone has put on perfume or scented lotion and a few minutes later you are able to smell it? What causes you to be able to smell something from so far away? In this lesson, we are going to use the kinetic molecular theory of gases to explain some of their behaviors and determine how we can compare the speeds of different gases.

Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

4. Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

Have you ever wondered what pressure is and how it gets measured? In this lesson, we are going to define pressure and explain some of the units that are used to express measurements of pressure.

Hydrogen Bonding, Dipole-Dipole & Ion-Dipole Forces: Strong Intermolecular Forces

5. Hydrogen Bonding, Dipole-Dipole & Ion-Dipole Forces: Strong Intermolecular Forces

Learn about intermolecular vs. intramolecular forces. Learn the different intermolecular bonds (including hydrogen bonding and dipole-dipole and ion-dipole forces), their strengths, and their effects on properties, such as boiling and melting points, solubility, and evaporation.

London Dispersion Forces (Van Der Waals Forces): Weak Intermolecular Forces

6. London Dispersion Forces (Van Der Waals Forces): Weak Intermolecular Forces

Learn how London dispersion forces are created and what effect they have on properties such as boiling and melting points. Discover this weak intermolecular force and how it is one of the Van der Waals forces.

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

7. 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.

Crystal Structures and the Unit Cell

8. Crystal Structures and the Unit Cell

This crystallography lesson explores the structure and properties of crystals. You'll learn about the parts of a crystal structure, types of crystals and patterns created by unit cells.

Fluids in Physics: Definition and Characteristics

9. Fluids in Physics: Definition and Characteristics

Fluids really know how to move! As flowing materials, fluids have some unique properties that help us understand and describe them. In this lesson you'll explore what fluids are and how they are defined in the world of physics.

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

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

Substances on Earth can exist in one of four phases, but mostly, they exist in one of three: solid, liquid or gas. Learn the six changes of phase: freezing, melting, condensation, vaporization, sublimation and deposition.
