Virtlab is based on the simulations and guided exercises found in N. Simonson & Company's pioneering text:
Dynamic Models in Chemistry by Daniel E. Atkinson (University of California, Los
Angeles, CA), Douglas C. Brower, and Ronald W. McClard (Reed College, Portland,
OR). Laboratories are also under development for Dynamic Models in Physics (Volume I: Mechanics) by Frank Potter (University of California,
Irvine, CA), and Charles W. Peck (California Institute of Technology, Pasadena,
CA), and Dynamic Models in Biochemistry by Daniel E. Atkinson (University of California, Los Angeles,
CA), Steven G. Clarke (University of California, Los Angeles, CA), and Douglas C.
Rees (California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA)
Virtlab's browser requirements are quite high. You must have a recent version of
default situation in most browsers. The site has been tested on recent versions
of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari but should work on most browsers. We have been unsuccessful in getting Virtlab to work
successfully with the Opera Internet Browser. We will continue to seek resolution to remaining browser incompatibilities.

We are deeply in his debt!
A new exercise Simple and Fractional Distillation now exists.
Other recent simulations include explorations of stoichiometry (moles, mole fractions, limiting reagents),
the Ideal Gas Law and the Equation of State,
Charles Law, Boyles Law, Raoults Law, and acidic dissociation (including isoelectric points).
Stoichiometry is an important subject and Charle's law, Boyle's Law, together with Raoult's Law and
acid base titrations are important matters. Daltons Law of Partial Pressures, sometimes called Dalton's Law
of partial pressures play crucial roles can help in understanding fractional distillation. dalton's law of partial
pressures (daltons law of partial pressures) should be understood by all students. Along with fractional distillation.
Will you be ready for acid base titration or acid base titrations. We hope so.
And don't forget or stoichiometry exercises.
