Knowledge of energetics can help understand the process of a reaction and the conditions under which it operates. It also develops knowledge of the link between individual bond energies and the net energy gain or loss as well as the realisation that energy is not just heat. This programme is designed to develop students understanding of energetics as well as developing thinking and research skills.
The RSC would like to thank Tim Jolliff for the use of his materials in these resources. Tim’s book ‘Chemistry for the Gifted and Talented’ is also available on Learn Chemistry.
