brobertson13

Electrochemistry

(0)
A detailed presentation which takes students through the principles of electrochemistry. Includes: - electrochemical cells - the electrochemical series - explanations of oxidation and reduction - electrode potentials - emf and associated calculations - fuel cells Ideal for A Level, Advanced Higher or equivalent.
Oxidation states of vanadium
brobertson13

Oxidation states of vanadium

(0)
A presentation which teaches students how to calculate the oxidation number of a transition metal ion in a compound, going on to use vanadium as an example. The presentation shows how different oxidation states lead to different colours of compounds, and uses photographs to illustrate this. Ideal for A Level, Advanced Higher or equivalent.
Organic Reactions Summary

Proteins

(0)
A presentation which covers the chemistry and biochemistry of proteins. Includes: - uses - how they're synthesised and broken down - their functional group - their structure - different types - their role in the human body - enzymes
The partition coefficient
brobertson13

The partition coefficient

(0)
A presentation which takes students through the idea of a partition coefficient when considering chemical equilibrium in different phases. It takes students step-by-step through the process of calculating the coefficient before going on to outline the basics of chromatography.

brobertson13

Acids and Base Chemistry

(2)
A presentation which covers the more complex chemistry of acids and bases, including: - Bronsted-Lowery definitions - Conjugate acids and bases - The Ionic Product of Water - Dissociation constants (pKa) - Calculating pH of strong and weak acids and bases - Buffers - Indications - Titration curves Ideal for A Level, Advanced Higher or equivalent.
Chemical Bonding and Structure - "Beat The Teacher"
brobertson13

Chemical Bonding and Structure - "Beat The Teacher"

(0)
Covers: covalent bonding, metallic bond, and intra- and inter-molecular forces. Statements are displayed to students which include factually accurate information, mixed with common misconceptions. Students have to identify the sections which are incorrect (and state why they are inaccurate). If, as a class or group, they identify all of them correctly, they "beat the teacher". The student-teacher completion is very motivating! Answers are included. Ideal for Scottish National 5 / Higher, English GCSE / A-Level, and equivalents.
Alternatives fuels to petrol
brobertson13
