Paramagnetism: Compounds  
Vials of a number of compounds (NaCl, MnSO4, FeSO4, CoCl2, NiSO4, ZnSO4, K4Fe(CN)6, [Co(NH3)6]Cl3, [Ni(NH3)6]Cl2, and H2O) are hung from a thread. When a magnet is brought near, some of the vials are attracted.

Paramagnetism: Oxidation States of Manganese  
Manganese(III) oxide, with 4 unpaired electrons per Mn atom, is more strongly attracted to a magnet than is manganese(IV) oxide, with only 3 unpaired electrons per Mn atom. Potassium permanganate, a compound of Mn(VII), has no unpaired electrons and is not attracted to a magnet.

Atomic Spectra and the Bohr Theory  Ed Vitz, John W. Moore
A section of ChemPrime, the Chemical Educations Digital Library's free General Chemistry textbook.
Atomic Spectroscopy
The Balmer Series  
This animation briefly introduces the basics of the emission spectra of one-electron atoms and ions. The first four lines of the Balmer series can be highlighted and the wavelengths read. There is a link to an Excel spreadsheet, Bohr1.xls, that explores these spectra in more detail.

Atomic Spectra  William F. Coleman
In this Flash animation the user can view the atomic emission spectra (400-700nm) of eight different elements. A dragable marker allows the user to approximate the wavelength of the various spectral lines. The effect of resolution can be examined in the sodium spectrum in the region 550-600nm.
