Visualizing molecular structures is made easy using Chime software.
to Visualize Molecules
|•||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.|
