Shapes of Molecules

Animated Tutorials For Bonding/Structure - CSU Fullerton and the MolSci Project (Latest Shockwave Plugin required)

Ask Dr Su if you have questions about using them.

 

To use and go along with our lab outline (or Chapters in Zumdahl):

Start with Lewis Structures, VSEPR, Visualizing Bonding.

Then finally look at Valence Bonds and MOs.

There are even Quizzes!

See the assignment list and the DAILY SCHEDULE for animations and visualization excercises.


Watch Equilibrium
Particulate Equilibrium updated link 4/23/13

Good simulation to see the mechanism of an equilibrium. Use the replay feature.

Developed by MoLE Project - Dr. John Gelder at Oklahoma State University and Dr. Michael Abraham at University of Oaklahoma.

Worksheet developed by the FLASH project - we will use this next semester in 101B.

Equilibrium Activity

K and Extent of Reactions; Download this file for Excel

( 300 K file size )

Not assigned at this time.

This is an Excel file that uses Macros. It is clean of any macro viruses. Right click to download the file to the desktop.

Follow the instructions given on the worksheet (ask me for it). You may work in pairs.

Use Excel 97 or Excel 2000. I am not sure if it works with Excel for XP.
