The basics of chemistry - Best Video contest


I'm a little rusty on chemistry. I found a video that looks like it is good to watch.

If anyone has a better one, recommend it.



Also, where should I go from this after watching this set of videos?

It might be a good primer for a lot of people.

I highly recommend this youtube channel.

Look at his playlists, he has a huge number of chemistry topics.
Do I get first prize?

Well you would from me because of the broad range and detail of its topics.

One which caught my eye was a video describing Kalman filters. I spent a significant portion of my engineering life working on Kalman filters and in particular fixing ones that had not been designed or implemented correctly. Probably because they are difficult to understand and in effect are mostly treated like a magic method. I only watched the first video and the fortieth video of the apparently 55 videos in the series on the subject but it looked to me like the presenter did not understand the under laying principals of Kalman filter but he does know how to implement one.

Thank goodness for Fleming and the fungi.

@Yttrium2, I would second the series you linked to in your first post, crash course is how I taught myself chemistry (as well as economics and philosophy.) Do this course, then simply research more advanced topics that interest you (Lewis acids, organic mechanisms, practical synthesis, electron movements, etc.) This is how I learned chemistry.
Best of luck!

MIT OpenCourseWare is my favorite youtube channel. It's got good information on immunology and other more advanced classes. Marc Scurrah also has a good immunology playlist..

My absolute favorite course I've ever listened to is by a man named Robert Sapolsky. Robert Sapolsky, Stanford, has an EXCELLENT lecture series. I HIGHLY recommend listening to the whole thing.. It could change your life.

in my opinion the most condensed easy to understand chemistry youtube channels for beginners are

Leah4Sci
Prof Dave Explains

then
Khan Academy

(use playback speed 1,5 or 2x)


crashcourse series does not teach properly its more for entertainment.

I second Khan academy...it covers a wide variety of subjects, not just chemistry.
Unfortunately, I don't know how to play back the video's at a higher speed, which would be handy.
