Web-Based Molecular Level Inquiry Laboratory Activity

From the author(s): "Molecular Laboratory Experiments (MoLE) in Chemistry are a collection of computer-based models of molecular laboratory experiments that can be integrated and linked with parallel hands-on laboratory experiments used in introductory chemistry. We are developing six computer-based molecular laboratory experiments and their parallel hands-on laboratory experiments around the content areas of: ideal gases (kinetic molecular theory laboratory activity/simulation), chemical equilibrium (Summer 2001), kinetics (collision theory and mechanisms), phase equilibria, solution process and atomic structure. These topics were chosen because they especially lend themselves to modeling using interactive computer graphics and to integrating the three levels of chemical understanding (particulate, sensory, and symbolic)."
