Radial solutions
~ Markcollacott47


Tricky topic; but handled gradually ... nicely
~ Jayreimer

In a nutshell, the 2nd law says "spontaneous reactions increase entropy." Based on first video, remember what spontaneous means and now we are adding that "entropy" (meaning disorder) increases. The presenter provides several good examples. Content is abstract (which is why I bought this video: I did not get it!) but the lecture makes it sufficiently comprehensible that I am ready to move forward.

Thanks Thinkwell & MindBites!

Great sum up of Carbs
~ aberry

I found this very helpful however he talks a tad fast so you really have to pay attention or plan to watch twice. I wish he would have slowed his speech just a little and made the video another minute or two longer, otherwise it's great.

Great start.. confusing end
~ benpatrick12

Started out great and then got terribly confusing and fast at the end.

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...

Naming chemical compounds
~ ttice

Just ok

Great! Thank you! The best!
~ afernandes

I've checked other lessons on the same subject in the Internet.

But that is the best (despite the HORRIBLE musics and sounds using as a helpers in the intermissions. Usefull, but not fun at all).
