Some of Dr. Gelder's Most Useful Animations
The following animations were used during the discussion of atomic structure
Bohr model: an animation showing the the Bohr
model and the postulates Bohr used to develop the model. Here are some
notes that I use when discussing the Bohr model.
Ionization energy: defining
ionization energy and shows first ionization energies for the 2nd, 3rd
and 4th period elements, and several ionization energies for Na, Mg, Al, Si
Atomic radii: shows the atomic
radii for the main group elements.
Periodicity: here are lecture
notes that I use to discuss periodicity. These notes develop the ideals
of effective nuclear charge and shielding.
The following animations were used during the discussion of bonding.
Ionic bonding: lecture notes discussing ionic
bonding, Born-Haber cycle and lattice energy trends (strengths of ionic
bonds). There are some graphics/animations in these notes that I did not use
in our discussion but you may find useful.
VSEPR: lecture notes introducing VSEPR.
These notes include some animations. The Chime based animations require a
plug-in that you will have to have. The plug-in is free and the link is included
in the notes.
Intermolecular attractive Forces: lecture notes and animations on London
dispersion forces, dipole-dipole forces and hydrogen-bonding. The London
dispersion forces animations is particularly nice.
