AP Chemistry: Chemical and Nuclear Reactions is a free online course that provides an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of various chemical reactions. Study how to calculate the rate of disappearance of reactants. It is important to understand the prediction of how a rate of a reaction can depend on the concentration of reactants. Before calculating the order of a chemical reaction, it is important to recognize the different factors that affect the reaction rate. This course will take you through examples of problems in the rate of reaction, their measurement, as well as the required procedures when the rate is given. This course introduces you to the effect of surface area on reaction rate, as well as the effect of concentration or pressure on reaction rate. Have you considered the impact of temperature on reaction rate and the influence of catalysts on reaction rate? This course will teach you the different ways of determining the rate law or the order of the reaction, as well as how to use the concentration approach in the rate law.
If you want to know how to calculate the appearance of products and the effect of surface area on reaction rate, then you should take this course. You will be able to explain the concepts of chemical equilibrium, equilibrium in the physical process together with equilibrium in a constant expression. Also, this course will help you understand the representation of the equilibrium constant for reversible reactions and equilibrium shifts for gases. Do you know there are some factors that affect equilibrium and the oxidation number of an element in a compound? The course also analyzes Le Chatelier’s principle, as well as the effect of concentration on equilibrium and equilibrium constant. This course outlines the effect of changing the reactant and product concentration on the direction of the reaction. By completing this course, you will be able to explain how reduction-oxidation reactions and the set rules of the oxidation number can be assigned.
Furthermore, you will learn about the procedure for balancing redox reactions using the half-reaction or ion-electron. This course will take you through how to predict the spontaneity of redox reactions and the redox and electrode process of values. You will also be able to describe electrolysis, the electrolytic cell and the electrolysis of sodium chloride. Do you know there are special differences between electrolytic cells and voltaic cells? This course will help you get a better understanding of the schematic of galvanic cells, how to write balanced nuclear equations and the products of nuclear reactions. Explore the properties of the different types of radioactive particles, the concept of half-life, the types of radioactivity and nuclear emissions. This course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in chemical kinetics, redox equations and nuclear reactions.
