The focus of this unit is chemical bonds, both intermolecular and intramolecular. Students also look at the bond spectrum and learn about electrostatic and electronegative forces.
This segment introduces the concept of chemical bonding and explores chemical changes using the ingredients found in taco sauce as a model.
In this segment, the students learn about chemical bonds, Lewis dot diagrams, and ionic bonds.
Intramolecular bonds are discussed in this segment, and the students create their own bonds using a software simulator.
The students discuss polar and nonpolar bonds in this segment, followed by an explanation of single, double, and triple bonds.
Intermolecular forces are the focus of this segment, and the students learn why hydrogen bonding makes ice float.
The students learn about melting point using sugar and salt. Special guest Dr. Ludovice discusses molecular modeling.
Chemistry Matters is a digital series from Georgia Public Broadcasting. The series covers chemistry concepts with 12 units of study divided into segments.
We're given a VIP tour of some extremely impressive facilities within Gulfstream Aerospace, where we interview a wide range of employees. We begin with a focus on engineering but quickly learn there are a variety of employment opportunities available at Gulfstream. And if you’ve ever wondered how planes fly, this video will help, as our experts explain Bernoulli's Principle. Of course, once you know how they fly, you’ll want to know how fast they go. That’s why we also include explanations of the terms mach and supersonic.
Students discover how solvents dissolve ionic and covalent solutes and learn how to measure solution concentration by mass percent, molarity, and molality. This unit also covers colligative properties.
