Pełny opis:

History of Chemistry (12 hours):

Position of Chemistry of the Natural Sciences. Early days of Alchemy and Chemistry. Alchemy as the first quasi-scientific knowledge on the material world. Great alchemists and their patrons. The early discoveries of first elements and chemical compounds. Chemistry in the Bible. Chemical element, atom, compound. Atomic structure and chemical properties of the elements. The most important laws of chemistry - the story of their discovery. The basic chemical reactions. Energy in chemistry. Nobel Prize winners - the great chemists.

Chemistry around us (14 hours):

Models of atomic structure - a modern view of the electronic structure of the elements. The periodic table of elements - linking the electron structure of atoms. The atomic nucleus. Nuclear weapons. Nuclear energy - benefits, prospects and threats. The basic states of matter: gases, liquids, solids. What is the chemical industry ?. What and how to produce the chemical industry fabricates ?. Some chemical aspects of the functioning of living organisms. The most important chemical resources and chemical products – linking to the great politics. Recycling of materials. Sustainable development - the role of Chemistry. Green Chemistry. Renewable energy sources. How Chemistry helps to solve the problems of energy and food shortage (side effects). The dark side of Chemistry - chemical warfare, chemical terrorism, chemical disasters, explosives, drugs. Man’s organism as a chemical analyzer. The mechanism smelling And tasting. What to do in a chemical emergency.

Chemistry in demonstrations (4 hours):

What is the smoke, fire, and explosion. Surface tension of water. Colors in Chemistry.
