Do you wish to know how electromagnetic waves can be produced by accelerated charge? AP Chemistry: Scientific Measurement and Atomic Structure is a free online course that provides you with an in-depth understanding of the rules of identifying significant figures. It is important to understand the process of data collection by making, adding, subtracting and dividing the measurements. Before working with the scientific notations, it is essential to understand how the decimal point can be moved directly after the first significant figure. This course will take you through the metric system, dimensional analysis, as well as the steps that are important for having successful dimensional analysis. This course introduces you to the physical states of matter and how matter can transition between the different physical states. Have you considered examining why substances are separated and why the number of atoms in a compound is based on the chemical formula? This course will teach you the crucial procedures that can be applied.

If you want to explore the concept of heterogeneous mixtures or homogeneous mixtures, including the types of pure substances, then sign up for this course. Having completed this course, you will be able to explain the properties of metals, non-metals, metalloids and various types of energy associated with matter. Also, this course will help you have a better understanding of the concept of nucleus, electrons, neutrons and protons. Do you know it is possible to determine the number of particles an atom contains? The course also examines the Dalton model of the atom together with the Thomson model of the atom. This course illustrates the production of positive rays and the gold foil experiment. This course seeks to clarify any challenges you may face in understanding the concept of the Rutherford model of the atom and number of the neutron in the nucleus.

Furthermore, you will learn about isotopes, the atomic mass of an element together with atomic and mass numbers. You will also learn about the concept of molecular mass, the Bohr model of the atom, and the electromagnetic spectrum. Do you know there is a working principle for photoelectron spectroscopy? This course will help you get a better understanding of mass spectroscopy, schematic of mass spectroscopy, as well as its representation. This course will explain in detail the characteristics of Hertz's experiment. Study the applications of electromagnetic waves, wavelength and frequency. You will learn about the technique that can be used to determine the absorption of UV and visible light in solutions in transmission mode. This free online will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in scientific measurements and the atomic structure.
