How to Excel in Inorganic Chemistry. Inorganic Chemistry is the branch of Chemistry dealing with the study of inorganic compounds, their properties and reactions with other compounds. Students usually find it difficult to excel in this subject because of its theoretical and factual nature. Given below are some tips that will help you to better prepare for this subject.
- Start building interest in this topic. It is the best way to learn this (and obviously nothing). Stop thinking that you have to read this only because we must clarify some exam or giving a presentation. Learning of this, no doubt, will help in Organic Chemistry and Physics too as many of the concepts taught here are used in these fields as well.
- Collect the curriculum and prepare a lesson plan. This is very important because this is really a very broad topic and if you are going to learn everything you probably miss on the matter. Follow a good and recommended book covering her curriculum thoroughly. You can use Internet for study as well. It will give you many resources to search the material and this way you will be able to gather more information, but after a book will keep concise and organized, a necessity if they are preparing for an exam and have limited time.
- Dale regular time and dedicated to this topic. Best time is morning time. First, try to learn the Periodic Table. True, it is really a tedious task, but you can omit f block elements in the initial stage. Some learn this remembering the names of the elements of the group in a wise way “song” or some learn by using symbols of chemicals. It depends on how you do it.
- Study the properties of the elements dividing the study material in groups according to the periodic table. Study of the properties of the individual elements by comparing with other elements in the different groups. This will not only increase your interest in this subject but also help to build a solid foundation for the theme: “The classification and frequency of the elements.”
- Learning chemical reactions really help. A good way to learn them is to understand the context in which these reactions are written. In many reactions books are written by the same element to illustrate its chemical properties. Once you have grasped the concept will be able to write most of the reactions to yourself. Always balance their reactions. Learning through writing is also a good practice.
- Metallurgy is another important issue on this issue and needs more attention, because it contains many processes, details of the elements and their applications. A domain on this subject can be achieved if well understood processes rather than just cramming them. Try to reproduce the reading things in writing. Coordination compounds is a comparatively easier and interesting chapter, but it requires good practical problem solving. You can refer to you tube or some other video sites showing good processes and their application. This will help you develop a strong control over these issues.
