Description: Atomic structure lies at the crossroads of both chemistry and physics, and this program examines a field of study crucial to both: the scientific shell game known as quantum mechanics. Schrodinger's mathematical distribution and the Pauli Exclusion Principle; electron orbitals and the three types of quantum numbers; and shells, subshells, and nodes are all discussed. A thorough demonstration of writing electron configurations is included as well. (27 minutes)

Description: "An atom with eight electrons in its valence shell is a happy atom." Section one of this program makes sense of Lewis structures and resonance structures while addressing the Octet Rule and its exceptions. In section two, "Professor Einsteinium" and elements of Atomic Mass University-AMU-study electronegativity and ionic and covalent bonding, while section three focuses on bond energy and reaction enthalpy.

Description: Why is the acronym VSEPR pronounced "vesper"? The answer to that question is the only thing not revealed in part one of this program, which takes a look at the VSEPR theory, non-bonding electron pairs, polarity, and dipoles. In part two, a "cow-chicken" and other experts elucidate the theories of hybrid orbital and molecular orbital overlap and illustrate how to determine bond order. (18 minutes)

Description: In part one of this program, chemistry authorities, including "Helium Man" and two janitors, lay down the law-Boyle's Law, Graham's Law, and Dalton's Law. They also present the Kinetic Molecular Theory and the Ideal Gas Equation and elaborate on partial pressures and the difference between diffusion and effusion. Part two investigates kinetic energy; ion-dipole, dipole-dipole, and London dispersion forces; hydrogen bonds; phase diagrams; and vapor pressure. (33 minutes)

Description: If chemical terms like miscibility, concentration, and osmosis are a mystery, this program provides the solution. They and other key concepts-including solubility, saturation, dilution, and electrolytes; mass percentage composition, mole fractions, molarity, and molality; and freezing-point depression and boiling-point elevation-are all carefully spelled out and applied.

Description: Even Deedee Dodobird knows that a strong general knowledge of scientific and mathematical concepts makes it much easier to understand physics, the study of how things work. Section one of this program demonstrates fundamental abilities such as how to manipulate numbers using scientific notation and how to convert and algebraically cancel SI units. In section two, scalars and vectors are presented, including the head-to-tail and component methods of vector addition, dot products and cross products, and even a healthy dose of trigonometry.

Description: This program rounds out the subject of two-dimensional kinematics with a comprehensive examination of circular and rotational motion. Topics include centripetal force, centripetal acceleration, period, velocity, tangential acceleration, and total acceleration; axis of rotation, rotating through an angle, radians, angular velocity, and linear speed; and just a touch of geometry.

Description: In section one of this program, colliding basketball players demonstrate the Principle of Conservation of Momentum, while section two debuts all three of Newton's Laws of Motion, as illustrated by moving a large bookcase, hanging from a rope, and pushing against a wall. Newtonian concepts of inertia, force, mass, weight, equilibrium, tension, and momentum, plus free-body diagramming, are also covered. "Live the laws, love the laws, be one with the laws."
