Web Resources and Apps

Submitted by Will, Bucknell University
Course Level: 
Topics Covered: 

Part 9 of the Flipped Learning in General Chemistry Series. This video explores the concept of reaction rate and shows how the rates of change of reactant and product concentrations vary during the course of a reaction.

Learning Goals: 

After watching this video and completing the assigned problems, students should be able to define the rate of a chemical reaction, determine a rate (average or instantaneous) from a plot of concentration vs time data, and understand how the overall rate of a reaction is related to a balanced chemical equation.

Time Required: 
10-15 minutes
Evaluation Methods: 

A short problem set is assigned with the video

Evaluation Results: 

Most students are able to learn the content in this video independently
