Nature of Molecules and Intermolecular Interactions

Nature of Molecules and Intermolecular Interactions

by Adam Le Gresley, PhD, Georgina Cornwall, PhD

This course covers the material of content category 5B of the official MCAT exam content outline.

In the natural world, atoms of different elements bind to each other, via bonds of different types, to create larger and more-complex structures: compounds and/or molecules. The plausibility of atoms bonding depends on their chemical properties, and the compounds they make up will acquire such properties, or new ones, depending on the changes that occur during the bonding process. These properties go on to determine how the new compound or molecule will interact with others and the environment.

In this course, the student will be given a walkthrough of the characteristics of molecules and their interactions. For optimal comprehension, the student is expected to have a college-level understanding of chemistry and physics.

el numero cuantico spin es importante para cumplir la regla de exclusiรณn, la regla de Hund (emparejamiento)
By Claudia A. on 02. March 2021 for Introduction โ€“ Quantum Numbers

Por que explicรณ detalladamente y con ejemplos la importancia del principio de exclusiรณn de Pauli y que para que se cumpla en el orbital S, debemos considerar al numero cuantico spin

nice lecture
By Wesley D. on 31. August 2020 for Hybridization โ€“ Chemical Bonding

its easy to understand but somethings are a little confusing because of the speed

By Daniel C. on 17. July 2019 for Double and Triple Bond โ€“ Chemical Bonding

Why I don't understand his explanation. Its not detailed enough to follow.

By Daniel C. on 16. July 2019 for Hybridization โ€“ Chemical Bonding

I don't get it. I feel like he's reading off a script and its too much show and less understanding.
