Season 1, Episode 9 (Equilibrium And Advanced Thermodynamics: Balance And Chemical Reactions)

4.0 0 x
Some chemical reactions happen spontaneously while others are non-spontaneous and need to absorb energy to occur. Using Thermodynamics, and the calculation of Gibbs free energy scientists predict which reactions will occur.

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.
