Aimed at beginning chemistry classes, this virtual lab from Thomas Greenbowe of Iowa State University in Ames features some 70 exercises and animations. Simulations illustrate concepts such as Boyle's law, which describes the relation between a gas's volume and pressure, and let students run experiments in electrochemistry and other areas. Animations depict molecular interactions such as the formation of hydrogen bonds between water molecules or the reaction between silver ions and a lead electrode in a solution of silver nitrate.
