It is often seen as linked to the quest to turn lead or another common starting material into gold,  though in ancient times the study encompassed many of the questions of modern chemistry being defined as the study of the composition of waters, movement, growth, embodying, disembodying, drawing the spirits from bodies and bonding the spirits within bodies by the early 4th century Greek-Egyptian alchemist Zosimos.
There are two versions of this current textbook, both containing the same information but organized differently: The alternative "Atoms-first" format saves this stuff for later, and begins with atomic theory and bonding.
Individual chapters for iPad, iPhone, Android devices and Kindle are also available: Each chapter can be downloaded as a separate pdf file; to see which one you need, move your mouse over the image and the title will appear. General Chemistry - a free textbook compiled from the work of various authors.
Please see here for details. Maryland This free book in PDF format is a revised and enlarged version of the first edition published in hard-cover format in by Prentice Hall.
College-level online lectures UC-Berkeley eChem1a: Online General chemistry - These professionally-made videos, most of which feature Prof. Mark Kubinec, are of outstanding quality - perhaps the best college-level general chemistry tutorials available. There are more than of them, organized into 38 lessons; many of the latter contain problem-solving tutorials, interactive quizzes, and lab demonstrations.
Most of the videos are fairly short min and can be accessed in any order. The emphasis is on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis.
More MIT Chemistry lectures and videos. Yale Freshman Organic Chemistry - Another excellent series, this one covers the two-semester first-year course which includes organic chemistry.
These are llive classroom lectures, given by Prof. His descriptions of the historical development of important concepts is unusually good, and adds to their understanding. Some of the projected slides are hard to read. The Dynamic Chemistry E-Textbook - a collaborative approach toward chemistry education where an Open Access textbook environment is constantly being written and re-written by students and faculty members resulting in a free Chemistry textbook to supplant conventional paper-based books.
Each of these contains topics ordinarily included in "general" chemistry, as well as more advanced ones that go beyond first-year college level. It is intended primarily for students in beginning chemistry courses.
Virtual Chembook - this nicely-done site by Charles Ophardt of Elmhurst College covers a wide swath of general, organic, and environmental chemistry.
The text material is interesting and well written without attempting to be encyclopedic.
General Chemistry Virtual Textbook - a free collection of comprehensive, in-depth treatments of various topics, intended to supplement or replace conventional textbook treatments.
It is aimed mainly at the first-year college level, but advanced high school students will find much of it useful. Steve Lower, Simon Fraser University The Chemogenesis Webbook - this extensive, excellent and comprehensive site by Mark Leach tells how chemistry emerges from the Periodic Table and bifurcates into the rich and extraordinary science that we know and experience.
Chemistry tutorial series on YouTube and other video collections - a summary of the major collections, including the Khan Academy, and those done by various teachers, mostly at the high school level.
WikiBooks on Chemistry - Many topics in general chemistry are covered here, and are worth looking at. But as in any "wiki-" type project to which anyone can contribute, the quality is variable, and the visual design is primitive.
Tanner's General Chemistry - a large collection of pages on matter including quantum theoryphysical chmistry, electrochemistry, and aqueous solutions. Chemistry Web Resources - this site maintained by Ron Rinehart of Monterey Peninsula College contains a wealth of material oriented toward chemical education, all well organized in a visually-attractive way.
Student Resources for General Chemistry - a comprehensive collection of tutorials from the Chemical Education Digital Library KnowledgeDoor - an excellent compendium of Chemistry- and Science-related data, in many ways more comprehensive than the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, and certainly more convenient to use.
Should be bookmarked by every serious Chemistry student! The ChemCollective student page has links to practice problems and tutorials on various topics. College physics for students of biology and chemistry - This hypertextbook by Ken Koehler is nicely organized and is the ideal place to go when your Chemistry textbook lets you down.
How to pass chemistry - sound advice that is widely ignored. Chemistry Packets by veteran teacher Mark Rosengarten. A collection of notes and worksheets in pdf format in two unit sets, one for honors, and the other for Regents Chemistry.
Each unit begins with a nicely-organized set of definitions and notes, and contines with worksheets that can serve as student homework. Although directed at the high school, these materials can serve as a good review for college chemistry students.SARAH ROCHFORD EXPERIMENT 3 Title: Properties of Gases Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to investigate some physical and chemical properties of gases and to use these properties to identify these gases when they are encountered.
Predict how changing a variable among PVT, and number influences other gas properties. Predict how changing temperature will affect the speed of molecules.
Rank the speed of molecules in thermal equilibrium based on the relative masses of molecules. Atoms Around Us What is an atom? Atoms are building blocks. If you want to create a language, you'll need an alphabet.
If you want to build molecules, you will need atoms from different iridis-photo-restoration.comts are the alphabet in the language of molecules.
