A few months back we introduced our blog readers to Wolfram|Alpha’s chemistry data, and we thought it would be fitting to have a Chemistry 101 review blog post for Homework Day. Wolfram|Alpha contains a wealth of chemistry data, and provides you with rapid and accurate computations at the simple push of a button. Wolfram|Alpha is an incredible learning tool for new chemistry students looking for ways to learn and test their knowledge of chemistry basics. Many of the topic areas found in an introductory or basic chemistry course syllabus can be explored in Wolfram|Alpha.
Need to compute how many moles are in 5 grams of iron? Query “how many moles are in 5 grams of iron?“, and Wolfram|Alpha quickly computes your input and returns a result, along with unit conversions.
Or you want to check how many molecules of water are present in 5 moles of water:
Need some quick facts about carbon? Make a single query, and Wolfram|Alpha returns its periodic table location, basic elemental properties, and much more.
With Wolfram|Alpha you can explore a multitude of areas in basic chemistry, such as referencing chemical elements, ions, and compounds, and computing chemical quantity conversions, stoichiometry, solutions, and much more.
Do you have questions on how to use Wolfram|Alpha in your chemistry courses? Or maybe you’re already using Wolfram|Alpha as a chemistry resource? Join us over at the Homework Day website, and send your homework questions to our team of experts.
