Electric charge, electric force, and voltage

Charge and electric force (Coulomb’s law)

In these videos and articles the definition of electric charge will be given as well as a discussion of the law of conservation of charge. You’ll learn how Coulomb’s law relates the electric force to charge and separation distance. The difference between an electrically conducting vs. electrically insulating material will also be discussed.

Introduction to mechanical waves

In these videos and articles you’ll learn the definition of a wave and the difference between transverse and longitudinal waves. You’ll also learn the definition of the basic terms used to characterize waves; amplitude, period, frequency, and wavelength.

Temperature, kinetic theory, and the ideal gas law

In these videos and articles you’ll learn about the Celsius and Kelvin temperature scales. The definition of a mole of a substance will be given. You’ll also learn how the ideal gas law relates the pressure, volume, and temperature of a gas. Lastly, you’ll learn how the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution gives the probability of finding a gas molecule moving at a specific speed.

Khan Academy: Crash Course Chemistry

It’s time to jump into Chemistry with Hank Green. He’s been a life long lover of this subject and it’s not just because of the rules, laws, bonds, and coefficients. But, also because of the men and women who shaped this science that deepened our understanding of our world so magnificently.
