Cool Photos at the Station

We had various stations in my chemistry classroom at Antioch HS to review for finals next week. One of my students (thank you Maille) took some interesting photos of a reaction between cupric (copper II) sulfate and NaOH (sodium hydroxide). In some ways it looks like it belongs under a microscope in a biology classroom! […]

Properties of Compounds Video

Schlessinger Media has made an excellent introductory video explaining why a mere hundred or more elements produce the millions of different compounds and mixtures that make up our world. In Properties of Compounds, you will see that chemical bonds are the key to understanding how elements combine. The differences between ionic and covalent bonds are clearly presented. […]

Standard Deviants Mole Video

The Cerebellum Corporation released a quirky video series in 1997 called the Standard Deviants. Below you will find the video on the mole from their series. I hope you find it useful in our study of the mole.

Mole Problems I

  The video below goes through the three basic mole problems, namely, grams-to-mole, MIAs-to-moles, and liters-to-mole. Since these are conversion factors it works in the reverse also (e.g. mole-to-grams, moles-to-MIAs, mole-to-Liters). The last problem is a two step conversion. Contact me if you would like more examples. If enough people would like additional worked problems I will […]

ChemFact: Why Kelvin Has No Degree Sign

  ChemFact: Why Kelvin has no degree sign. The Kelvin temperature scale is sometimes called the absolute temperature scale, especially in older books. It was developed by William Thomson, also known as Lord Kelvin, in 1848. A Kelvin degree is the same size as a Centigrade degree. This temperature scale however uses absolute zero, rather than […]
