Lesson 3.6
Empirical and Molecular Formulas

This lecture begins by outlining the differences between empirical and molecular formulas. Example problems involve finding empirical and molecular formulas from the percent composition of elements in a compound and from a combustion analyses. As with all lecture formatted learning activates in our package, this lesson comes with a slide show presentation, a slide-by-slide discussion outline for teachers, students' notes, a worksheet providing students with the opportunity to further explore the concepts and problem types covered, and a complete solution key for the worksheet.

Lesson 4.8
Valence Bond Theory and Hybrid Orbital Theory

This lecture opens with a brief overview of valence bond theory and its deficiencies in regard to molecular shape. It then goes on to describe how the shapes predicted by VSEPR theory result from the promotion of electrons and subsequent hybridization of orbitals. The lesson closes with an examination of the role that hybrid orbital play in double and triple bonds. We invite you to examine the slide show presentation, discussion outline for teachers, students' notes, worksheet, and worksheet solution key for this lesson.

Lesson 6.6
Colligative Properties of Solutions

This lecture examines the concepts and calculations associated with the four colligative properties of solutions. It also explores ideal and non-ideal solutions as well as the differences between volatile and non-volatile solutes. We invite you to examine the slide show presentation, discussion outline for teachers, students' notes, worksheet, and worksheet solution key for this lesson.

Lesson 15.1
Reaction Rates and Rate Laws

This lecture opens by examining the concept of rate and how rate changes as a system approaches equilibrium. It then discusses rates laws and reaction order with respect to individual reactants and the overall chemical reaction. The lesson closes with some example problems that unfold one step at a time. We invite you to examine the slide show presentation, discussion outline for teachers, students' notes, worksheet, and worksheet solution key for this lesson.

Lesson 17.1
Naming Alkanes

This lecture opens with a brief history of the classification of organic compounds. It then outlines the IUPAC system for naming alkanes and the structural isomers of alkanes, including cycloalkanes. We invite you to examine the slide show presentation, discussion outline for teachers, students' notes, worksheet, and worksheet solution key for this lesson.
