Learners read the definition of atomic weight and obtain the weights of elements by viewing the Periodic Table and charts that list atomic weights by name or symbol.

Vapor pressure is the pressure exerted by molecules in the gas phase in equilibrium with a liquid or a solid. Two examples are used to illustrate vapor pressure: the drying of clothes and the evaporation of ice.
Gas Volume vs. Temperature (Charles's Law)
By Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
In this animated object, learners examine how gas volume varies directly with absolute temperature (K at constant pressure). An example of a sample of gas at two conditions of volume and temperature is used to illustrate the law.
Calculation of Atomic Weight from Isotopic Composition
Learners examine the method for calculating the atomic weight of copper from the natural percent composition of each of its two isotopes.
Shapes of Simple Molecules - Part 1
In this animated and interactive object, learners observe how two, three, or four groups of electrons around the central atom cause the shape of the molecule to be linear, trigonal planar, bent, tetrahedral, or pyramidal. Seven examples and eight interactive questions are provided.
