Molar Volume: Using Avogadro's Law to Calculate the Quantity or Volume of a Gas

1. Molar Volume: Using Avogadro's Law to Calculate the Quantity or Volume of a Gas

Have you ever wondered why a balloon expands when you blow it up? How something as light as air is able to exert a force large enough to inflate a balloon? In this lesson, you will learn about the relationship between the volume of a container filled with a gas and the number of gas particles that container holds. This relationship is known as Avogadro's Law.

Mass-to-Mass Stoichiometric Calculations

2. Mass-to-Mass Stoichiometric Calculations

Learn how to set up and make mole to mass, mass to mole and mass to mass stoichiometric calculations. Learn how the ratios of moles helps you compare and make calculations. Learn how to relate mole ratios to molar mass.

Solutions, Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

3. Solutions, Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes

Learn what a solution is and how it is formed. Learn how to express the concentration of a solution in terms of molarity, molality and mass percent. Discover the differences between an electrolyte and a nonelectrolyte.

Calculating Molarity and Molality Concentration

4. Calculating Molarity and Molality Concentration

Learn the abbreviations and meaning of molarity and molality. Then apply what you have learned by going over some sample calculations with given concentrations.

Calculating Dilution of Solutions

5. Calculating Dilution of Solutions

Learn what a solution is and how to properly dilute a new solution from a stock solution. Learn the dilution equation that combines molarity, the volume of stock solution and desired solution to determine how much stock solution is needed for the new solution.

Dissociation Constant and Autoionization of Water

6. Dissociation Constant and Autoionization of Water

Learn the meaning of auto-ionization of water, sometimes called self-ionization, where water acts as a proton donor and acceptor to form both hydronium and hydroxide ions. Learn what the auto-ionization constant is and how to use it to determine the concentration of either hydroxide or hydronium ions in a solution when given the other value.

Acid-Base Indicator: Definition & Concept

7. Acid-Base Indicator: Definition & Concept

Blue, orange, yellow, and red are just some of the colors you may see when testing a solution using an acid-base indicator. Continue reading to learn about acid-base indicators and how the process works.

The pH Scale: Calculating the pH of a Solution

8. The pH Scale: Calculating the pH of a Solution

Learn the history of the pH scale, how to describe it and why it is used by scientists. Discover how to calculate the pH of an acid or base solutions given either the hydroxide ion concentration or the hydronium ion concentration. Learn how to start with the pH and calculate the hydroxide and hydronium ion concentrations.

Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

9. Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

Discover what titration is and how to calculate the concentration of an acid or base that has been titrated to equivalence. Learn the meaning of titrant, standard solution and equivalence point. Study titration curves and learn how to determine pH during any point of a titration between a strong acid and strong base.

Titrations with Weak Acids or Weak Bases

10. Titrations with Weak Acids or Weak Bases

Learn about titrations with weak acids or weak bases in this lesson. Study their titration curves and learn about some of their important characteristics. Learn how to calculate pH during titrations involving weak acids and strong bases.
