In this clip I am showing chain reactions, in a class demo, using multimedia from the latest edition of the Physical Chemistry texbook by Laidler, Meiser and Sanctuary. The steps discussed in this clip are
Chemical Kinetics from chapters 9 and 10 contain this multimedia clip that I use in class to show the steps of the chain reaction. This is found on page 10-9 of the text and is also found in the Multimedia table of contents on the side bar.
Includes multimedia that opens on relevant pages and allows the student to visualize many of the concepts by varying parameters and plotting different graphs. Things students often have difficulty with, such as isothermal, isobaric, isochoric and adiabatic process, are clearly visualized.
Physical Chemistry textbook
by Laidler, Meiser, Sanctuary
This popular Physical Chemistry text book is now available in electronic format. We have preserved much of the material of the former hard copy editions, making changes to improve understanding of the concepts in addition to including some of the recent discoveries in physical chemistry. Many chapters have new sections and the coverage of several chapters has been greatly expanded.
