Chemistry: Challenges And Solutions

March 2018

Season 1, Episode 8 (When Chemicals Meet Water: The Properties Of Solutions)

3.0 1 x
Solutions are all around us, from the air we breathe to the steel frames of many buildings. Solution chemistry is behind the extraction of materials for a variety of applications, for example, making a great cup of coffee.

Season 1, Episode 7 (The Energy In Chemical Reactions: Thermodynamics And Enthalpy)

4.0 2 x
Thermodynamics- the study of how and why energy moves- governs what can happen in a chemical reaction. By applying thermodynamics, chemists can measure and control the heat and energy of chemical reactions to solve problems.

Season 1, Episode 6 (Quantifying Chemical Reactions: Stoichimetry And Moles)

3.0 2 x
Elements combine in definite ratios. The results of a chemical reaction can be predicted using balanced chemical formulas. In this unit, we explore atomic mass, the limiting reactant & the yield of a reaction.

Season 1, Episode 5 (Making Molecules: Lewis Structures And Molecular Geometrics)

4.0 3 x
Molecules form when individual atoms create bonds by sharing electrons. Understanding how atoms combine to make molecules allows scientists to predict many of the physical and chemical properties of substances.

Season 1, Episode 4 (Organising Atoms And Electrons: The Periodic Table)

3.0 1 x
As scientists discovered more and more chemical elements, they began developing systems to organise the elements by their chemical properties, leading to the modern periodic table.

Season 1, Episode 3 (Atoms And Light: Exploring Atomic And Electronic Structure)

4.0 3 x
In this unit, we will follow the gradual change from considering the atom as a single indivisible particle to a later understanding of the atom composed of its constituent subatomic parts.

Season 1, Episode 13 (Modern Materials And The Solid State: Crystals, Polymers, And Alloys)

3.0 13 x
In this closing chapter, we see chemistry as not only an excellent entry point to predicting how a new material behaves, but also a continuous process of innovation and discovery.

Season 1, Episode 12 (Kinetics And Nuclear Chemistry: The Need For Speed)

4.0 14 x
Controlling rates of reactions has implications for a variety of applications including drug design and preventing corrosion. The latter half of this unit introduces nuclear reactions.

Season 1, Episode 11 (The Metallic World: Electrochemistry And Coordination Compounds)

3.0 11 x
Metals often play a key role in redox reactions, which are essential to all aspects of chemistry, particularly in many biochemical processes.

Season 1, Episode 10 (Acids And Bases: The Voyage Of The Proton)

3.0 10 x
Whether it is manipulating the pH of the soil to control the color of hydrangea flowers or meticulously controlling ingredients to bake the perfect pastry, acid-base chemistry is all around us.
