Chemistry in Context Simulations - 9th Edition

Atomic Weight Calculator

Watch how the calculation of atomic weight changes with varying isotope abundances.

Ocean Acidification

Explore the connection between rising atmospheric CO2 levels, dropping ocean pH and changes in speciation of carbonate.

CFCs in the Atmosphere

Discover the effects that photons across the electromagnetic spectrum have on CFC molecules.

IR Windows

Examine the IR spectrum of molecules of "greenhouse gases" and ponder how these molecules affect Earth's climate.

Build a Planet

Play with the radiation scales to find a balance necessary for life on a planet.

Electromagnetic Spectrum

Interact with the Electromagnetic Spectrum to examine the relationships between wavelength, frequency and energy.

Collisional Heating

Interact with the IR spectrum for a given molecule of a greenhouse gas. Discover what happens at the absorptive peaks.

Stabilization Wedges

Try to stabilize carbon emissions over the next 50 years by adjusting different sliders for the ways we can impact the amount of carbon produced.

Historic Climate Change

Examine historical changes in temperature and in the concentrations of selected greenhouse gases. Use the slope tool to determine rate of change.

Nanoparticles in Sunscreen

Examine the effects of both the size and concentration of zinc oxide nanoparticles on the efficiency of sunscreen. View the penetration of ultraviolet light on the skin, and visualize the photon-nanoparticle interaction at the nanoscopic scale.

IR-Mass Spectrometry

Explore some of the exciting applications of Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry.

Nanoparticle Size and UV Interaction

Visualize how ultraviolet light interacts with nanoparticles of varying sizes.

UV in the Atmosphere

Find out where ultraviolet light comes from, and explore how the atmosphere protects us from ultraviolet light and other harmful solar radiation.

Ozone Interactions with Light

From vibrational modes to breaking molecular bonds, discover the effects that photons from across the electromagnetic spectrum have on ozone molecules.
