Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Thermodynamics; Second law of thermodynamics; Chemical equilibrium
Introduction: The First Law of Thermodynamics places important restraints on the path that can be taken by a system but it does not define the path. For example, the First Law does not rule out the possibility of warming oneself by sitting on a...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Voltammetry; Electrochemistry; Solution (Chemistry)
Experiment with the goal of gaining an understanding of anodic stripping voltammetry and an understanding of the factors involved in performing quantitative analytical determinations, through the determinations of amounts of copper.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Homework; Molecular structure; Molecules-Models; Conformational analysis; Isomerism
This is the Molecular Zoo entry for ethylene ozonide and therefore describes the detailed three-dimensional, gas-phase structure of ethylene ozonide produced by instrumental and computational methods. It also offers a critical comparison of these...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Wilderness areas; Landscapes
Handout on art and the wilderness, with examples of pieces of artwork, an essay by Rebecca Solnit, and material on the Hudson River School. The handout is from the 2006 version of the ID, Critical Inquiry course.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Chemical bonds; Transition metals; Molecular orbitals
Introduction. The purpose of this handout is to provide a simple model for the bonding in transition-metal complexes as a framework for understanding and interpreting the most important properties of these complexes. We shall deal mostly with the...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Homework; Problem solving
Introduction: Use the approach outlined in the handout "How To Solve Equilibrium Problems" to solve the following problems related to the hydrogenation reaction. Use partial pressure as the concentration unit for the gaseous species.
Handout providing a list of sources of data in the library. Specifically, it provides a list of the most useful
compilations of numerical data need for planning experiments and for the analysis of experimental results.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance;
Experiment designed to introduce the fundamental principles and practice of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a form of NMR spectroscopy, by obtaining and examining a two-dimensional image of the stem or bud from a plant.
