Thermodynamics of chemical reactions has three basic laws which govern the behavior of chemical reactions. Classical thermodynamics Deals with chemical systems under equilibrium conditions. Two other areas which are related to thermodynamics. These are statistical thermodynamics and non-equilibrium thermodyamics.An example of a system that...

We will discuss the types of chemical reactionsfrom two perspectives. Firstly, we will discuss the types of chemical reactions from a thermodynamic point of view followed by a mechanistic approach.We will mostly discuss organic reactions, because it is my speciality.We talk in thermodyamics...

A chemical reaction involves bond breaking and bond formation. In order to understand a chemical reaction, one needs to understand the meaning of a chemical bond. As an example we take the hydrogen molecule. This molecule is stable enough to exist and has one sigma...

In the modern chemistry laboratory, chemicals are identified based on their structure of atoms. Namely, if they are organic or inorganic. One basic method to identify the formula of a compound is the elemental analysis method. In this method the molecular formula of the compound...
Is Time Real or Relative under the Sun

This week over 100 scientists from around the world came to Huntsville, Alabama to talk about magnetic reconnection. What is reconnection and why do they care about it?Reconnection refers to a particular way that magnetic fields from different sources come together. You know how...
Facts about Mars
By: Steven Mars
The planet Mars was named after the Roman God Mars. Mars is the fourth planet from the sun. Mercury, Venus, and Earth are closer to the Sun than Mars. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are farther from the sun in that order. Two moons...

In 1905, Albert Einstein set forth his theory of relativity, in which he demonstrated that the speed of an object must be measured against some other object, either moving or standing still. There is no reason to merely suppose that an object is moving at...
