ANIMATION in Observations, Physical Properties, Intermolecular Forces, Physical Change, Covalent Bonding, Ionic Bonding, Lab Safety, Identifying an Unknown, Molecular Motion, Chemistry Basics, Molecular Shapes, Animations. Last updated December 12, 2023.

This animation explores the relationship between physical properties and particle-level interactions. Particle diagrams of common household substances are used to illustrate that forces of attraction influence melting points. Similarly, particle diagrams of the same substances dissolved in water are used to compare their conductivity in solution. This animation was featured in the November 2023 issue of Chemistry Solutions. **This video has no audio**
