Visualizing molecular structures is made easy using Chime software.
Using Chime SimulationsKAREN E. IRVING
to Visualize Molecules
UNIT OBJECTIVESStudents will be challenged to:
|• ||Use the Chime plug-in to produce different models of the same chemical structure and analyze the usefulness of each model type (ball and stick, wire frame, space filling, line).|
|• ||Explore Chime models of the elements and identify similarities and differences between nonmetallic molecular elements and crystalline metallic elements.|
|• ||Explore Chime models of compounds and identify similarities and differences between compounds made of nonmetallic molecular elements and compounds made of metallic and nonmetallic elements.|
|• ||View Chime structures and write appropriate chemical formulas for simple elements and molecular compounds.|
|• ||Produce image essays that illustrate macroscopic, submicroscopic, and formulaic representations for substances.|
