Hardness of Solid Substances - Grinding  
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.

Orbital Exponent Optimization in Elementary VB Calculations of the Chemical Bond in the Ground State of Simple Molecular Systems  Valerio Magnasco
Orbital exponent optimization in the elementary ab-initio VB calculation of the ground states of H2+, H2, He2+, and He2 gives a fair description of the exchange-overlap component of the interatomic interaction that is important in the bond region.

A New "Bottom-Up" Framework for Teaching Chemical Bonding  Tami Levy Nahum, Rachel Mamlok-Naaman, Avi Hofstein, and Leeor Kronik
This article presents a general framework for bonding that can be presented at different levels of sophistication depending on the student's level and needs. The pedagogical strategy for teaching this model is a "bottom-up" one, starting with basic principles and ending with specific properties.

The Rotating Morse–Pekeris Oscillator Revisited  José Zúñiga, Adolfo Bastida, and Alberto Requena
Examines the MorsePekeris oscillator model for the calculation of the vibrationrotation energy levels of diatomic molecules, demonstrating that it is possible to develop the model through an alternative method that allows correction of the MorsePekeris model through first-order perturbation theory.

Make a Balloon Ec-Static  
In this activity, students create static electricity by rubbing a balloon on their hair or clothing. When you rub a balloon on hair, shirt, or sweater, the balloon will attract things toward it. The rubbing scrubs electrons off and they collect on the surface of the balloon. ,
Atomic Properties / Structure
Static Strength Tester  
In this activity, students make a static strength tester by suspending a Styrofoam ball from a string. When the ball is brought near static-charged balloon, it is repelled. How much it is repelled is a function of the static charge strength.

Interactive Molecular Orbital Diagrams  William F. Coleman
Here is an application for constructing the molecular orbital electron configurations of heteronuclear diatomic molecules. Energy level diagrams are given for the two different cases encountered in heteronuclear diatomics of the first short period (Li2 - Ne2). This is a useful tool for having students explore questions of bond order, magnetic properties and numbers of unpaired electrons.

Heteronuclear Diatomic Molecular Orbital Formation  William F. Coleman
Here is a set of movies that demonstrates heteronuclear diatomic molecular orbital formation. The orbitals start at a distance where there is little or no interatomic interaction and move to the appropriate bond distance. Orbital phase is shown by the different colors.
