Ch 13: Prentice Hall Chemistry Chapter 13: States of Matter

About This Chapter

The States of Matter chapter of this Prentice Hall Chemistry Companion Course helps students learn the essential lessons associated with the states 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:

  • Find the lesson within this chapter that corresponds to what you're studying in the States of Matter chapter of your textbook.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the chemistry and scientific concepts you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quiz after watching each video lesson to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material, or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Chapter Topics

You'll learn all of the chemistry topics covered in the textbook chapter, including:

  • The kinetic molecular theory
  • Pressure
  • The Boltzmann distribution
  • Phase changes
  • Evaporation
  • Phase diagrams

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.

Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

2. 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.

The Boltzmann Distribution: Temperature and Kinetic Energy of Gases

3. The Boltzmann Distribution: Temperature and Kinetic Energy of Gases

Gas particles are always moving around at random speeds and in random directions. This makes it difficult to determine what any one particle is doing at a given time. Luckily, the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution provides some help with this.

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

4. 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.

What is Evaporation? - Definition & Examples

5. What is Evaporation? - Definition & Examples

Evaporation is the process of a substance in a liquid state changing to a gaseous state due to an increase in temperature and/or pressure. Evaporation is a fundamental part of the water cycle and is constantly occurring throughout nature.

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

6. 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.

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

7. 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.
