In this video, I (Dr. Mike Christiansen from Utah State University) will begin my Semester 1 Undergraduate General Chemistry course. In this lecture I’ll teach you about what is why it’s important. I’ll also define numerous vocabulary words, such as matter, element, atom, molecule, compound, pure substance vs. mixture, gas, liquid, solid, homogenous vs. heterogeneous, solution, physical change vs. chemical change, precision vs. accuracy. Furthermore, I will teach you how to classify a substance as being pure, mixture, homogeneous or heterogeneous. I’ll teach you SI units prefixes, how to inter-convert between Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin scales.
