The Molecules & Minds simulations were designed to show you how chemistry concepts are everywhere around you.  The simulations will help you get a better understanding of those concepts than you could get through textbooks and pictures alone.

The idea behind Kinetic Molecular Theory is that matter is composed of particles in constant motion.  The simulations will show you what that constant motion looks like, and allow you to manipulate one variable (such as temperature) and see how it impacts another variable (such as pressure).

Check out some of the resources on this website to get the most out of the simulations or to learn more about them.
