Our world is ruled by chemistry. It is the study of matter and energy at the scale of atoms and molecules. As the most all-embracing discipline there is, it should be at the top of everyone’s list of must-learn subjects.
Chemistry and Our Universe: How It All Works is your in-depth introduction to this vital field, taught through 60 engaging half-hour lectures that are suitable for any background or none at all. Covering a year’s worth of introductory general chemistry at the college level, plus intriguing topics that are rarely discussed in the classroom, this amazingly comprehensive course requires nothing more advanced than high-school math. Your guide is Professor Ron B. Davis, Jr., a research chemist and award-winning teacher at Georgetown University.
With passion and humor, Professor Davis guides you through the fascinating world of atoms, molecules, and their remarkable interactions, showing you how to think, analyze problems, and predict outcomes like a true expert in the field.

Not for the faint-hearted
Professor Davis' course is a real university level introduction into chemistry. A lot of math, including logarithm, exponential functions and calculus. The first 30 (!) lessons are pure physics: Quantummechanics, Orbital Theorie, Solid State Physics, Thermodynamicss. In the second part these basics will put into work in chemistry proper. So this course is surely not easy listening but if you are prepared for a bit of mental work your reward is enormous: You learn "How it all works". The material in the pdf is excellent and absolutely necessary for the understanding of several lessons. I guess you will either love this course or shake your head and cry: Spare me!
