Physical Chemistry 1
Physical Chemistry 1 is a resource designed to help with the study and teaching of GCSE Chemistry.
One of the most important topics in GCSE Chemistry, physical chemistry is a branch of chemistry that is concerned with how chemicals interact with each other, and what transformations take place when they do. Knowledge of physical chemistry is vital to success in this subject.
This resource is the first of two NEC resources on physical chemistry, and covers the following topics:
- Energy in reactions
- Energy level diagrams
- Measuring energy changes
- Rates of reaction
This resource also contains activities and summary exercises that students can use to test their knowledge and see what areas they need to work on.
Developed by subject experts, these resources and teaching materials are specifically designed to meet awarding body specifications to help students prepare for exams. NEC works alongside teachers and examiners to ensure that information is accurate and up to date.
This resource is adapted from our GCSE Chemistry course - which means it is designed for self-study. Therefore, it is understandable, affordable and easy-to-use, whether you’re a teacher, a home educator, or a student yourself. It can be used as a short- or long-term solution to fill gaps in knowledge.
This product comes in the form of a downloadable PDF, which means it can be viewed offline.
