In this ten-lesson chemistry unit, we'll learn about reactions in aqueous solutions. We'll start out with a lesson on properties of solutions and a quick demonstration. Then, we'll look at solution concentrations and various factors that determine solubility.

We'll then move on to look at different types of reactions: precipitation reaction, acid-base reactions, and oxidation-reduction reactions. Last, we'll look at acid-base titrations before lessons on solving titration problems and using gravimetric analysis. Gravimetric analysis is a technique in analytical chemistry that is used to find the quantity of an analyte based on the mass of a solid.

This series of lessons was selected from a broader, comprehensive course, Chemistry. This course and others are available from Thinkwell, Inc. The full course can be found at The full course covers atoms, molecules and ions, stoichiometry, reactions in aqueous solutions, gases, thermochemistry, Modern Atomic Theory, electron configurations, periodicity, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, bonding theory, oxidation-reduction reactions, condensed phases, solution properties, kinetics, acids and bases, organic reactions, thermodynamics, nuclear chemistry, metals, nonmetals, biochemistry, organic chemistry, and more. The course features three renowned chemistry professors: Dean Harman, a professor of Chemistry at the University of Virginia and Gordon Yee, an associate professor of Chemistry at Virginia Tech and Tarek Sammakia, a professor of chemistry at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

great series
~ nadine6

These series have been extremely helpful to me since I am a veteran returning from Iraq to go back to school, having been out of school for a while I have forgotten most of this stuff. I wish the VA covered instructional materials like this, it's difficult to go back to school when you've forgotten most of your high school education.More schools should incorporate learning programs such as these into their curriculum.

is there something wrong with sample weight?
~ dortiz

Its very clear and helpful but where did the .2832 come from? Initially there was a different mass for the initial compound...

wonderful experience
