About This Chapter
Solid State Structure & Properties- Chapter Summary
In these lessons you will learn about topics such as crystal lattice and crystalline solids, their properties and how they are formed. Our instructors will provide information on the unit cell and magnetic properties of solids, in addition to a lesson on the creation of solids. The objectives you will be mastering include the following:
- Identify two types of solids
- Explore the structure and arrangement of crystal lattice
- Discuss the different types of crystal structures
- Understand how solids are formed from atoms and molecules
- Describe the electrical and magnetic properties of solids
The lessons in this chapter are designed to be viewed on home computers and also mobile devices. This allows you to study at home or away from home with a reliable Internet connection. When you feel ready, there are also self-assessment quizzes included with each lesson that allow you to test yourself on what you have studied.
1. How Crystalline Solids & Amorphous Solids Differ
You may be familiar with what a solid is, but have you ever considered what gives a solid its shape? This lesson will provide you with an overview of the two main types of solids--crystalline and amorphous.
2. Crystal Lattice: Definition & Structure
Did you know crystal solids have a certain arrangement? Learn about this arrangement, called a crystal lattice, and explore their structures. Test yourself at the end of this lesson by taking a short quiz.
3. 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.
4. How Atoms & Molecules Form Solids: Patterns & Crystals
After watching this video, you will be able to explain how atoms and molecules form solids, whether in the form of random mixtures or crystal patterns. A short quiz will follow.
