Ch 6: Liquids and Solids: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Liquids and Solids chapter of this College-Level General Chemistry Help and Review course is the simplest way to master solids and liquids. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of liquids and solids.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering college-level general chemistry material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn college-level general chemistry. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding phase diagrams or working with heating curves
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about liquids and solids
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the Liquids and Solids chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know; review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Liquids and Solids chapter exam to be prepared.
  • Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any solids and liquids question. They're here to help!
  • Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.

Students will review:

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.

Phase Diagrams: Critical Point, Triple Point and Phase Equilibrium Boundaries

2. Phase Diagrams: Critical Point, Triple Point and Phase Equilibrium Boundaries

Learn what a phase diagram is and how to interpret phase diagrams. Discover how to use a phase diagram to locate the phase equilibrium boundaries. Also, learn what a triple point and critical point are and how to locate them on a phase diagram.

Phase Changes and Heating Curves

3. Phase Changes and Heating Curves

Learn the phases - gas, liquid, solid and plasma. Learn what a phase diagram is and what terms describe the movement between phases: melting, sublimating, freezing, vaporization, condensation, and deposition. Discover why heating curves have plateaus, what a phase transition is, and what happens during this transition.

Crystal Structures and the Unit Cell

4. 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.

What are Heating and Cooling Curves?

5. What are Heating and Cooling Curves?

In this lesson, we will define heating and cooling curves. We will discuss how to understand and interpret such curves from both the heating and cooling perspectives by studying a generic example.

What is Aerogel? - Structure, Composition & Facts

6. What is Aerogel? - Structure, Composition & Facts

There are lots of neat materials out there from rubber to cement to glass. But aerogel might top them all. This lesson will explore the structure and composition of this fascinating substance.

Aerogel: Uses & Mechanical Properties

7. Aerogel: Uses & Mechanical Properties
