Chemical Properties of Water

This week’s science learning video is about the emergent chemical properties of water. I’ll be getting into these properties in more detail in a future video, but today I’m going to cover the main chemical factor that enables many of Continue reading Chemical Properties of Water

Chemical Reactions: A basic tutorial

On Saturday I was making cinnamon rolls for my family. And it occurred to me how many chemical reactions take place in everyday processes. When I make a batch of cinnamon rolls, a lot of chemical reactions are taking place. Continue reading Chemical Reactions: A basic tutorial

Science Tutor Video on Chemical Bonds

This week’s science tutor video is a foundation for understanding the chemistry of inorganic matter, along with its implications for biology. I cover three types of chemical bonds, but I also get into the Van der Waals interaction because it Continue reading Science Tutor Video on Chemical Bonds

Science tutor video: acids and bases

I’m finally branching out, and adding a little bit of chemistry to my science tutor video series. This short (6-minute) science tutor video covers the established definitions of acids and bases. I’ve also put in a quick tutorial on the Continue reading Science tutor video: acids and bases

Orbitals and Energy Levels Made Simple

A member of the Science Learning Forum had a great idea for explaining orbitals and energy levels. Here’s the video.   I kept this video simple, because I intended it to be a precursor to the upcoming tutorial on photosynthesis. Continue reading Orbitals and Energy Levels Made Simple
