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.
In later part of the 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.
Taking up this course enables you to appreciate chemical bonding and the 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 which will also help some of the students among you to take up exams. At the end of the course, there is also a mind map which will help you to remember and recall all the important concepts you have learnt in the course and make the complex ideas easier to understand.
Who this course is for:
- IGCSE (A and AS levels), High school, NIOS and IB Chemistry students, undergraduate students pursuing chemistry and anybody who is generally interested in chemistry.
