If this is your first time on this site, or if you have switched computers, you will probably want to run the "Browser Tuneup" below. This site includes QuickTime, Flash, Shockwave, Java, and Chime elements, so those are the programs to check for. If you have a Macintosh, only Netscape 4.x browsers are supported. The Interactive Student Tutorial will not function with Netscape 4.79. For Windows, this site is not compatible with Netscape 4.7. Chime is not compatible with Netscape 6.2.X.
Chemulation - "Polarity / Solubility
This experiment examines the miscibility of different solvents and the solubility of various solutes in each of them. You will attempt to mix various pairs of liquids by stoppering and shaking the test tube after adding the liquids to them. Next you sill attempt to dissolve sodium chloride and iodine crystals in each of the solvents and solvent pairs. Finally you can view another annotated molecular models of solvents and solutes in order to understand the reasons why some solvents will mix while others won't and why a give solute dissolves in one solvent but not in another.
Compress- "Concepts in General Chemistry
Reactions in Aqueous Solution is a unique education CAI program. This program cover the entirety of reaction prediction, formula writing, and equation balancing in any introductory course in general chemistry.
The Mole Concept provides drill and practice in making conversions among grams, moles, and number of atoms (molecules) using the factor-label method under conditions of immediate feedback.
Chemical Stoichiometry provides virtually every possible combination of conversion from mass, moles, or number of molecules (atoms) of reactant or product to mass, moles, or number of molecules of a second species in the balanced equation is represented in the 75 available problems.
Oxidation-Reductions cover the entirety of reaction predicting, formula wiring and equation balancing in any introductory course.
Ionic Equilibrium provide students with drill and practice in determining hydrogen or hydroxide ion concentrations in solutions of weak acids, weak bases, buffers and in solution in which hydrolysis occurs.
Chemical Reactions covers the entirety of reaction prediction, formula writing, and equation balancing in any introductory course in general chemistry
This program teach students how to construct valid Lewis Diagram. This program adheres strictly to Lewis Rules and does not allow for either expanded or incomplete octets. Each non-hydrogen atom is expected to have an octet.
Trinity Software- "Inorganic Qualitative Analysis"
Inorganic Qualitative Analysis - A simulation utilizing Video images simulates the laboratory study of the qualitative analysis of seven inorganic cations and four anions.
