  • Thermodynamics I
    • This module explores thermodynamic definitions, the zeroth law of thermodynamics and temperature, the first law of thermodynamics and enthalpy, reversible expansion, and heat capacity.
  • Thermodynamics II
    • This module explores the second law of thermodynamics and entropy, the second law of thermodynamics and spontaneity, the second law of thermodynamics and equilibrium, the third law of thermodynamics and absolute entropy, and Hess' Law.

    • This lab allows you to further explore thermodynamics.
  • Chemical Kinetics I
    • This module explores the rate of reaction, stoichiometry and order, zero order reactions, first order reactions, second order reactions, determination of reaction order, and effect of temperature on reaction rate.
  • Chemical Kinetics II
    • This module explores complex reactions, steady-state approximation, and catalysis.
  • Virtual Lab 2: Kinetics
    • This lab allows you to further explore kinetics.
  • Quantum Chemistry I
    • This module explores Planck's quantum of energy, particle nature of light, wave nature of matter, Heissenberg's uncertainty principle, the Schrödinger equation, free particle & the particle in a box, Born's interpretation of the wavefunction, and normalisation of the wavefunction.
  • Virtual Lab 3: Particle in a Box
    • This experiment involves the visible absorption spectra of dyes.
