Acids and Bases
SKU: 35316
Use this video to familiarize students with the properties of acids and bases. Beginning with an overview of how these two kinds of chemicals react to or neutralize each other, the program explores Arrhenius's ideas on ion release and Lowry and Bronsted's theory of proton exchange. Details on the pH scale, indicators, conjugate bases, and Lowry-Bronsted reactions are featured along with numerous examples of acid and base applications-cleaning agents, electric batteries, stomach antacids, and indicators in analytical chemistry experiments. Viewers will find the video's lively demonstrations and their use of everyday objects and materials particularly helpful. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online. (31 minutes)

Atoms, Molecules, and Compounds
SKU: 39604
All matter in the observable universe-from a single blade of grass to a planet in a faraway galaxy-is made up of atoms, molecules, and compounds. This program introduces these minuscule building blocks in five sections: The Nucleus (protons and neutrons, energy shells, binding energy, fission and fusion); The Electrons (quantum numbers, spdf orbitals); The Elements (periodic table, valence electrons, ions and ionization energy, electronegativity, covalent and ionic bonds); The Energy of Atoms (exothermic and endothermic reactions, spontaneous reactions, Gibbs free energy, activation energy, catalysts); and Common Compounds (properties of sodium chloride and water, polarity). A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online. A Films for the Humanities & Sciences Production. A part of the series Essential Chemistry. (25 minutes)

Changing States of Matter
SKU: 35306
This program demonstrates the changeability of solids, liquids, and gases with real-world, easy-to-understand examples. Set at a campsite, the video utilizes simple tools at hand-a camp stove, pots and pans, boiling water, and ice-to explain the concepts of state change, latent heat, expansion, contraction, and sublimation. Viewers will become familiar with the particle theory of matter, how heat or cold changes the characteristics of a wide variety of materials, and how a great deal of technology relies on these transformations. Helpful animation sequences and concise chapter summaries reinforce essential physics and chemistry concepts. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online. (28 minutes)

Chemistry and Life
SKU: 35343
Students new to chemistry might think it's all about beakers and test tubes. Use this program to show them what chemistry is really about-the foundation of life, and the innovations that make life better. Outlining Earth's early development and the creation of the first organic substances, the video focuses on what humanity has been able to accomplish, and what challenges the future holds, in the field of chemistry. Resins, fibers, and plastics that have revolutionized human activity are showcased-in the world of sports, with its radically engineered lightweight equipment, and in the stunning example of NASA's solar-powered Helios aircraft.

Explosion on the Lady Delia (Oxygen)
SKU: 2898
The Lady Delia was an oil rig supply level which was being refitted by highly professional workers who understood their work and their tools but were blithely unaware of the meaning of the chemical environment in which they worked. The first clue that things were different was that the cigarettes the men were smoking burned very quickly; that seemed odd but not dangerous. Then someone threw a burning butt to the ground, and within minutes a flash fire broke out. The subsequent investigation determined that an error caused the admission of oxygen into the area, and showed at what point sufficient oxygen was present so that a cigarette could cause an explosion. As it follows the investigation, the program explains the nature of oxygen and of combustion-and of the perils of being ignorant of the basics of chemistry. (26 minutes)
