#ChemTour: Physical chemistry

Get a little closer to chemistry each month with the 2022 #ChemTour. This month, we celebrate getting physical with… Physical Chemistry!

Love it or hate it, you have to admit that most people either love or hate physical chemistry. But p-chem is where we get down to the core of the particles and forces that make atoms behave the way they do. From there, you can get into why atoms form, how reactions run, and everything else that makes matter, well, matter.

Make friends with physical chemistry this month!
