Enthalpy, Entropy & Free Energy      (static pdf file) 


Some very good Kinetics Tutorial Sites:

KMT - Maxwell Distribution by David N. Blauch  (USED DURING OUR NOTES)

(Physlet Physics Site with Java security instructions)

Does not run on Edge or Chrome and requires Java 8 with latest update & special settings.


Some very good Thermodynamics Tutorial Sites:

Basic Thermodynamics by Gary L. Bertrand, University of Missouri-Rolla

The Entropy Page (a little bit off-the-wall, but very informative and quite interesting)

The Laws of Thermodynamics (A one-page explanation)

The Laws of Thermodynamics (A very thorough discussion - very detailed)

Gibbs Free Energy Java Applet (Java is required by your browser to run this)

Enthalpy and Gibbs Free Energy Calculator (Very Cool!  This does A LOT!)

Gibbs Free Energy (Very good site for either Chem I or AP Chem)

Who Was Josiah Willard Gibbs?


Estimating Enthalpy Changes Tutorial

Gibb's Free Energy Tutorial

Collision Theory of Reactions Tutorial


Some very good Equilibrium Tutorial Sites:


Le Chatelier's Principle: Discussion, Self-Test and Tutorial

Equilibrium Tutorial

LeChatelier Principle Tutorial

Effect of Conditions Tutorial

I had a brand new beaker once,
it's gone beyond recall,
for all the glass and pieces, 
are embedded in the wall.
