Basic Principles of Chemistry 1

This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with basic concepts associated with the composition of matter and the general characteristics of compounds, mixtures, and solutions. After completing this unit, trainees should be able to identify the particles that make up an atom and describe two ways in which atoms form chemical bonds. They should also be able to explain what compounds and mixtures are, and how they differ from one another. In addition, trainees should be able to describe what a solution is, calculate the weights of materials in a percent-by-weight solution, and explain what a pH measurement represents.
