More than 9 hours of total viewing on 67 disks! 56 total activities. Kinetics: If a chemical reaction is too slow, it may not be practical. If it's too fast, however, it may be dangerous! Studying reaction rates helps us make things economically and safely. It also helps us understand, on a molecular level, how and why chemical reactions take place. 6 videos. Concepts: Rate of reactions, rate laws, activation energy, catalysis, chemical reactions, reaction pathways, activated complex and reaction intermediates, collision theory, inhibitors, clock and oscillating reactions. Video Description: Introduction to Reaction Rates Kinetics is the study of the rates of chemical reactions. Show students how the rate of a chemical reaction can be measured. 5 activities, 49 min. Rate Laws Show the mathematical relationship between the rate of a reaction and the concentrations of reactants as it is expressed in the overall rate law for the reaction. 3 activities, 32 min. Effect of Temperature on Reaction Rates Introduce the basic principles of collision theory. 2 activities, 35 min. Catalysis Dramatically show how catalysts increase the rate of a chemical reaction. 6 activities, 46 min. Activation Energy Discover the many ways the necessary activation energy can be supplied in reactions. 4 activities, 32 min. Reaction Pathways The reaction pathway is an abstract, step-by-step model that is used to predict and explain what happens on a molecular level. 4 activities, 37 min. Equilibrium: Chemical equilibrium is a dynamic concept, and a challenging one for students to understand. Explore the properties of reversible chemical reactions and the nature of equilibrium. 3 videos. Concepts: Reversible chemical reactions, forward and reverse reactions, chemical equilibrium, reaction rates, LeChatelier's principle, gas-phase reactions, solubility equilbria Video Description: Exploring Equilibrium What is equilibrium? Explore what happens to the amount of reactants and products at equilibrium. 5 activities, 44 min. LeChatelier's Principle Show how chemical equilibrium is a balancing act between the rates of the forward and reverse reactions. 4 activities, 52 min. Models and Simulations Use physical models to simulate what happens to the amounts of reactants and products in a reversible chemical reaction. 3 activities, 46 min. Acids and Bases: Vinegar, aspirin, Vitamin C, baking soda, and ammonia—many common substances are acids or bases. Investigate the properties, principles, and applications of acid-base chemistry. 6 videos. Concepts: Acids and bases, Bronsted-Lowry theory, pH scale, acid-base indicators, strong vs. weak acids, neutralization reactions, titration, hydrolysis of salts, conjugate acid-base pairs, buffers, acid rain. Video Description: Introduction to Acids and Bases Explore the properties of aqueous solutions and classify them as acidic, basic, or neutral. 3 activities, 32 min. Acid-Base Indicators Indicators are organic dyes that change color in different pH ranges. Show students how indicators are used to characterize acids and bases. 5 activities, 49 min. Neutralization Reactions and pH Show students that the neutralization of a strong acid and a strong base gives a neutral solution that is pH 7. The final pH of other neutralization reactions depends on the strengths of the acid and base. 5 activities, 41 min. Natural Indicators and Household Substances Explore the indicating capabilities of items such as flowers and fruits! Natural indicators are a logical choice for analyzing common acids and bases. 3 activities, 40 min. Weak Acids and Bases Not all acids are created equal! Compare the strength of strong vs. weak acids and bases by measuring the pH values for equal concentrations of solutions. 5 activities, 55 min. Buffers Buffers provide an essential acid-base balance in consumer products, foods, lakes and streams, and even living cells. What are buffers made of and how do they work? 3 activities, 39 min.
