Free Chemistry Help With Online Solutions

Updated on January 7, 2014

Chemistry is a subject that is challenging for many students. Students often ask the question “ how can I improve at Chemistry.” The three reasons students struggle with chemistry are 1) Not getting help when needed 2) Not learning from incorrect answers given in homework and on tests. 3) Not willing to work hard.

Chemistry is required for many majors. Often times students in these majors have little or no interest in science. This creates an “ all I need to do is pass” attitude which results in a huge class drop out rate. The easiest way to be successful at any endeavor is to start with a good attitude. When the attitude is right it is much more likely that a student will seek help when struggling. The obvious source of help is to see the instructor. Other free sources of available help can be found online. Some community colleges are now offering free tutoring help for students. Check with your professor to see if help is available.

Finding chemistry answers without first understanding the question will not help students be successful in chemistry class. Many students decide they do not need to purchase the required textbook for the course and their attempts to pass the class prove to be unsuccessful. Purchasing the textbook is only the first step. The next step is to read and study it. Even after doing this, many student find that they still need help.

There are three sources of free online help that are effective in helping students find and understand the answers to challenging problems in chemistry. These sites allow students to ask a question and receive a detailed answer that will also help understand the question better.

The first site is called Wiki Answers. This site provides reliable answers, but they are usually brief. Many times questions do not get answered. The next site is called All Experts. This is a high quality site that provides answers from individuals who must prove that they have a background in the field they are tutoring in order to become a tutor on the site. The answers are very detailed. The one drawback to using this site is that receiving answers may take awhile.

The third site is called Yahoo Answers. At this site students will receive a number of answers to questions asked usually within minutes after posting the question. Top contributors have a badge to distinguish them which also shows the percentage of right answers they have obtained. Another effective feature this site offers is a search option. Students that do not receive answers for questions posted can often use this feature to find the answer they are looking for. There is also an advanced search for students who would like to study questions and answers in a certain category.

These online sources can be an excellent way for students to improve their understanding in chemistry. Using these resources when doing homework, and reviewing tests taken will greatly improve overall performance and make the class much more enjoyable.

      Assume a 100g sample:

      So you have 59.0 g C, 7.1g H, 26.2g O and 7.7g N

      convert all of these to moles

      Next take the lowest mole value, d'ivoire it into each of the other values to get the ratios. those are your empirical formula numbers. If they are not whole numbers multiply them by the lowest number that will make them all whole.

      Next add up empirical formula to get molar mass and divide into molar mass of molecular formula. Use the resulting number to multiply the values in the empirical formula to get the molecular formula.

      When we trace the development of atomic theory, we can see how the early form of an idea is modified rather than thrown out by later discoveries. Do you recognize parallels to this modification of basic ideas in other kinds of human experience? Explain please coz i have no idea what's that ahah! thank you so much!

      Maddy, here is the reaction that takes place when

      sodium bicarbonate mixed with water. Na does not affect the pH.

      HCO?3 + H2O ? H2CO3 + OH

      As you can see bicarbonate is the conjugate base of the weak acid H2CO3. Therefore the Hydroxide ion makes it slightly basic. It's pH is 8.2

      This isn't really a comment, but I'm hoping Steve, or another kind soul, could help me. I'm wondering if sodium bicarbonate mixed with water can ever be an acidic solution? I have acid erosion damage to my teeth and use a bicarb mouth rinse (half tspn or so in glass of water). My dentist told me to stop doing this, claiming “Sodium bicarbonate is an amphoteric substance with both acidic and basic (alkaline) properties. The correct concentration in a solution is important in order to reduce any likelihood of acidity". Is it possible that mixing bicarb with water can ever be acidic? If so, how would it occur as I have to be careful not to cause further acid damage by using an acidic rinse! Thanks so much for any help.

      Eileen, you have H for Hydrogen in the equation, don't you mean H+ ? Hydrogen is a diatomic molecule in nature. A single hydrogen atom occurs in an ionic solution and is written as H+.

      Try to solve this problem again using the half reaction method.

      1) Balance non-hydrogen, non oxygen atoms

      2) Balance Oxygen with H2O

      3) Balance Hydrogens with H+

      4) Balance charges

      in titration of H2b as polyprotic acid at the first eq.point the PH is

      H2b H+ + HB

      HB H+ + B-

      PH = 1/2 (pka1 + pka2 )

      justify ?

      I feel that my results have been very accurate, and i am very pleased that my predictions have all been proved correct. This shows all the relative understandings of theories such as the collision theory. So as said before, the higher the concentration the faster the rate of reaction. This is shown when using 4moles (the highest concentration i chose to use) which had the fastest reaction rate.

      I want to calculate a gas pressure using Raoult's law. I have no trouble with the calculation, however, I am measuring this pressure in a 6 volume box. My Raoult's calculations are not matching my vapor readings. I think it is because I have not included the volume of the box. Does anyone know how I can incorperate the volume into Raoult's law? How do I go about including the volume in this calculation?

      Steve you 3 points are very on top of things, but are there not kids who just don't get chemistry no matter how hard they work at it? I would think that those children need some one-on-one tutoring. Perhaps peer tutoring from those students who do well in this subject.

      Every month we put up 100s of chemistry ideas for science fair projects and other categories of science so that kids can learn from others their age.
