In this animated and interactive object, learners examine a depiction of how force is multiplied by a larger cylinder when pressure from a pump is applied to a smaller cylinder. A short quiz completes the activity.
In this well-illustrated activity, learners examine the three types of intermolecular forces: dipole-dipole forces, London or Van der Waals forces, and the hydrogen bond. Two interactive questions are included.
This screencast shows how blood droplets are held together by a strong cohesive molecular force that produces surface tension in each drop and on the external force. Surface tension pulls the surface molecules of a liquid toward its interior, decreasing the surface area and causing the liquid to resist penetration.
