High School Chemistry: Matter and Intermolecular Forces

This free online course examines the properties of different states of matter, as well as their intermolecular forces.

Publisher: ADU
Everything around us is made of matter. The books we read, the water we drink, and the air we breathe are all examples of substances made of matter. They obey the basic scientific definition of matter being anything that has weight and takes up space. Have you ever wondered what the smaller constituents of matter are? Or how they combine to make up the different states of matter? Take this course today to learn about the forces in matter!

Description

Everything around us is made of matter. The books we read, the water we drink, and the very air we breathe are all examples of substances made of matter. They all obey the basic scientific definition of matter being anything that has weight and takes up space or has volume. Have you ever wondered what the smaller constituents of matter are? Or how they combine to make up the different states of matter? Take this course today to learn about the forces in matter!


Long Summary

Our universe, the Milky Way, is made up of matter. It is found within our bodies and around our close environment too. It occupies space within our observable sight and at molecular levels we cannot simply see with our bare eyes. Curious minds have long been investigating concepts relevant to matter since the fifth century. Giving rise to very interesting theories about matter. Including those made by ancient Greek philosophers like Empedokles from Akragas.  He suggested that the roots of matter were “eternal and invariable” consisting of water, air, fire and earth. The concept of Plato’s bodies was later developed to improve representations for Epedokles’ “roots of matter”. This would in turn support many thoughts regarding the constituents of matter forming theories that eventually give rise to modern-day atomic theory. Learn about the scientific experimentation and proofs that have made modern-day atomic theory outlive other theories regarding matter. This course will also teach you about later experimentations on matter useful to your scientific mind.

 

High School Chemistry: Matter and Intermolecular Forces explores the chemistry behind the existence of matter in their different states. Matter, across its different states - solid, liquid, gas maintains its characteristics of occupying space (or having volume) and having weight. Each state of matter has its own unique properties that distinguish it from the others. Properties of each state of matter are analyzed in this course together with their relationships and expected effects from varying forces or energies. You will learn about common variables affecting gas pressure. Including volumes of the containers used, temperature of gases surrounding us, and the number of measurable gas molecules in containers. In addition, the different states of matter have varying factors of the strength of attraction between molecules. For instance, liquids have different types and strengths of attractions to one another following common intermolecular forces involving dipole and induced dipole forces.

 

Science students interested in increasing their chances of passing their chemistry high school exams should enroll in this free online course. Your proficiency in calculations involving ideal gas laws, Dalton’s law, Charles’s law, Boyle’s law, Avogadro’s law, and Gay-Lussac’s laws will be improved. You will also learn about arithmetic computations related to various chemical solutions and their molar concentrations. Instructors looking to enhance their understanding of molecular forces, subatomic particles, and basic aspects of chemical bonding are welcome to complete this course. Would you want to understand what happens when matter changes from one form to another? Start this course today to understand the chemical concepts of matter relevant to their different states alongside the intermolecular forces at play.
