  • Basic understanding of the structure of an atom


Atoms to molecules is a course designed for IGCSE A and AS levels and all the undergraduate students pursuing chemistry.

At the end of part one course, you will have a thorough understanding of the basic bonds that exist in nature – ionic, covalent, polar covalent, and metallic bonding. Conditions for the formation of the bonds and the physical properties of compounds formed from these bonds are explained in detail

This course has two parts, part 1 and Part 2

in Part 2 (a separate course), we discuss various molecules and compounds which are the products of bonding. They have diverse structures and properties. The structure and property of a molecule in turn influences its surroundings resulting in the formation of giant structures. The bond angles, the bond lengths, weak forces that exist in the environment, the shape and polarity of the molecule are important to understand the chemistry behind the formation and physical property exhibited by the giant structures. These are the topics covered in Part 2

Taking up this course enables you to appreciate bonding and its complexity that exists in nature to form molecules and giant structures it provides you the understanding of quantum chemistry it gives an idea of why the bonding is a continuum. this course also includes assignments and quizzes that help you to validate your understanding of the subject this will also help the students to take up exams.
