Osmosis, Diffusion and Saturation

1. Osmosis, Diffusion and Saturation

Particles in a solution can move through different states of matter through the processes of osmosis and diffusion. Learn about the concepts of osmosis, diffusion, and saturation, and how they affect the solubility of particles and the movement of molecules.

The Rate of Dissolution: Factors and Definition

2. The Rate of Dissolution: Factors and Definition

Dissolution occurs when the solute in a solvent forms a solution. Learn about the factors and rate of dissolution, explore how like dissolves like, and define key terms such as the greater surface area, miscible, and immiscible.

Calculating Molarity and Molality Concentration

3. Calculating Molarity and Molality Concentration

Molarity is defined as moles of solute per liter of solution and is often used to calculate solutions in stoichiometry. Molality is moles of solute per kilogram of solvent, which is used in calculating boiling point and freezing point. Learn about when to use molarity and molality and how to uncover unknown variables through their equations.

Precipitation Reactions: Predicting Precipitates and Net Ionic Equations

4. Precipitation Reactions: Predicting Precipitates and Net Ionic Equations

A precipitation reaction is a process during which two reactants form a precipitate. Discover what precipitates are, and learn about the solubility rules, net ionic equations, and examples of net ionic equations and their role in predicting precipitates.

Colligative Properties and Raoult's Law

5. Colligative Properties and Raoult's Law

Learn why vapor pressure and osmotic pressure are colligative properties. With examples, discover how to apply Raoult's Law and learn the formula to find osmotic pressure.

Solutions, Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

6. Solutions, Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

Solutions are homogenous mixtures composed of a solvent and a solute. Learn about how they are created, and explore electrolytes, nonelectrolytes, molarity, molality, mass percent, ionic substances, and covalent substances.

Properties of Water

7. Properties of Water

Hydrogen bonds make up a lot of the properties that make water able to be drunk and frozen as well as aid its elements. Learn more about the properties of water as well as its functions.
