Hardness of Solid Substances - Grinding   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (9))
A number of metals and nonmetals are ground with a mortar and pestle. The nonmetals shown here are all soft (due to weak intermolecular forces), but the metals vary in hardness.
Heat Treatment of a Metal Bobby Pin   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (6))
A bobby pin is subjected to various heat treatments.
Ferrofluid   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (3))
A magnet placed just below a dish containing ferrofluid generates an array of spikes in the fluid.
Memory Metal   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (2))
When a piece of metal wire spelling the letters ICE is pulled apart, it deforms. When the wire is placed in hot water, it "remembers" its original shape, once again forming the letters ICE. (The memory metal used in this demonstration was provided by the Institute for Chemical Eduction.) A simulation of the processes at the atomic level is shown.
Simulation of Dislocations in Metals   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (2))
An array of soap bubbles is used to simulate a close-packed arrangement of atoms in a metal crystal.
Metals 2 (GCMP)   
(Interactive Simulation, Software (1))
Reactions of Metals 2: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will observe the reactions of different metals (Zn, Ni, Mn, Fe) with iodine. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
Metals 1 (GCMP)   
(Interactive Simulation, Software (1))
Reactions of Metals 1: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will observe the reactions of different metals (Zn, Ni, Mn, Fe) with iodine. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
Fireworks (GCMP)   
(Interactive Simulation, Software (1))
Fireworks: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will study the colors produced by metal salts in flames. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
Burning Magnesium (GCMP)   
(Interactive Simulation, Software (1))
Burning Magnesium: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will look at the reactions of two elements with oxygen in air. We will begin by observing the reaction of magnesium metal with oxygen when the metal is heated in air. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.
Intermolecular_Forces__Liquids_and_Solids : ElectricalConductivity (8 Variations)   
(Assessment Material (1))
Which of the following has the greatest electrical conductivity?
Electrochemistry : SacrificialAnode (10 Variations)   
(Assessment Material (1))
The following electrochemical data may be helpful in answering the question below.

One method for protecting metals against corrosion is to connect the metal directly to a "sacrificial anode". This is the method used to protect pipelines and ships hulls. Which of the following metals would you consider the best candidate for a sacrificial anode for a ship's hull? The hull is steel (which is mostly iron).

Reactions : MetalActivitySeries (10 Variations)   
(Assessment Material (1))
Predict whether the following reaction will occur in aqueous solution.

Zn(ClO3)2(aq) + Ni(s)
