Types of Elements in the Periodic Table and Their Properties (Screencast)
By Debbie McClinton, Dr. Martin McClinton
In this screencast, we review the positions of metals, metalloids, and nonmetals in the Periodic Table and the general characteristics of each.
The Effect of Temperature on the Vapor Pressure of a Liquid
Learners examine how vapor pressure is calculated. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with increasing temperature. If the heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure at one temperature are known, the vapor pressure at a second temperature can be calculated.
Introduction to the Periodic Table
