Biomolecules: The Carbohydrates (Video)
By Becky Polk-Pohlman
Viewers watch an introduction to monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides. The processes for dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis.
Biomolecules The Carbohydrates
By Barbara Liang
Learners read a brief introduction to monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides. The processes for dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis are shown.
The Three States of Matter
By Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the properties of liquids, solids, and gases.
The Effect of Temperature on the Vapor Pressure of a Liquid
By Debbie McClinton, Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
Learners examine how vapor pressure is calculated. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with increasing temperature. If the heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure at one temperature are known, the vapor pressure at a second temperature can be calculated.
Learners examine phase diagrams that show the phases of solid, liquid, and gas as well as the triple point and critical point.
Dilution of Hydrochloric Acid
By Jill Larson
In this interactive object, learners examine how to properly dilute hydrochloric acid.
Introduction to the Periodic Table
By Mona Wenrich
Students read about the basic organization and structure of the periodic table of elements. By clicking on the symbol, they can read that element's atomic number and weight. In an exercise, students identify elements as belonging to a group, a period, or neither.
The Hydrogen Bond
In this interactive object, students examine a type of chemical bond known as the "hydrogen bond."
In this interactive object, the learner practices identifying charges on ions.
Ions are electrically charged particles obtained from an atom or from a chemically bonded group of atoms by adding or removing electrons. Eight examples illustrate the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in positive ions (cations) and in negative ions (anions).
Pressure and Boyle's Law
Students examine standard pressure in this interactive object.
Oxidation States of Ions
Learners examine the periodic table to identify metallic elements that have either fixed or variable oxidation states.
By Eileen Bouchard
Students read brief descriptions of atoms, molecules, elements, and compounds, and complete a matching exercise that pictures these particles and molecules as pieces of taffy.
Balancing Oxidation-Reduction Equations
In this animated activity, learners examine the terms "half-reaction," "oxidizing agent," and "reducing agent" and follow five interactive examples to balance equations for oxidation-reduction reactions. Three problems are provided as a self-check.
By Terry Bartelt
Learners view an animated presentation showing how the pH level of a cleaning solution is controlled in a closed-loop system in a manufacturing setting. A quiz completes the activity.
In this animated object, students examine the role equilibrium plays in everyday life. Formulas are presented in an interactive way.
pH and Its Basic Principles
By Joan Kornitz
In this animated object, learners view hydrogen and hydroxide ions in a solution. A brief quiz on the basic principles of the term pH completes the activity.
In this interactive object, the learner examines how pressure and volume relate to each other.
Gas Volume vs. Temperature (Charles's Law)
In this animated object, learners examine how gas volume varies directly with absolute temperature (K at constant pressure). An example of a sample of gas at two conditions of volume and temperature is used to illustrate the law.
Standard Molar Volume
By Dr. Miriam Douglass
Learners observe that the volume of one mole of any gas is 22.4 L at standard temperature and pressure. An illustration shows that only the mass of the molar volume differs with the identity of the gas.
Learners assign oxidation numbers to atoms in neutral compounds and in polyatomic ions. Six examples are worked through in detail, and three problems are provided.
In this animated and interactive object, learners follow two rules to write unit conversion fractions.
In this interactive and animated object, learners use solubility rules to predict when an insoluble ionic compound will precipitate in a double replacement reaction. Four step-by-step examples are given.
Naming Compounds Containing Polyatomic Ions
Learners examine a table of common polyatomic ions. Eight examples are provided for practice.
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the inverse proportionality of wavelength and frequency and their relationship to the speed of light.
