Rend Lake College
General Chemistry (Chem 101)
This is a very short module dealing with the thermochemistry of a super-saturated solution.
It utilizes a website from Purdue University and features a short mini-movie as well as diagrams
for a lab scenario that I have used in the past. The scenario charges the students with determining
how reuseable (microwaveable) hot packs work. The inclusion of the mini-clip gives this module an
This module would have application to any course that deals with solution chemistry, the thermodynamics
of solvation, and crystal formation.
