Chemistry: Challenges And Solutions

Season 1

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

3.0 0 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 10 - Acids And Bases: The Voyage Of The Proton

3.0 2 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.

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

4.0 3 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 2 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 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 3 (Atoms And Light: Exploring Atomic And Electronic Structure)

4.0 6 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 2 (The Behaviour Of Atoms: Phases Of Matter And The Properties Of Gases)

3.0 5 x
Fundamentally, chemistry is the science of interacting particles. This unit covers the properties of solids, liquids, and gases in terms of the behaviour of invisible particles of matter that interact at the atomic scale.

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 5 (Making Molecules: Lewis Structures And Molecular Geometrics)

4.0 13 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 1 (Matter And The Rise Of Atomic Theory: The Art Of The Meticulous)

4.0 5 x
This unit explores how chemistry evolved from adapting materials for practical purposes to a science that systematically offers solutions to the world's challenges.
