Antibonding Orbital

A molecular orbital higher in energy than any of the atomic orbitals from which it is derived, lends instability to a molecule or ion when populated with electrons, denoted with a star (*) superscript or symbol.

Henry's Law

The pressure of the gas above a solution is proportional to the concentration of the gas in the solution.

Free Radical

A highly reactive chemical species carrying no charge and having a single unpaired electron in an orbital.

Viscosity

Resistance offered by the molecules of a liquid to flow is termed as viscosity.

Hydrolysis

The reaction of a substance with water or its ions.

Percent by Mass

Le Chatelier's Principle

States that a system at equilibrium, or striving to attain equilibrium, responds in such a way as to counteract any stress placed upon it.
If a stress (change of conditions) is applied to a system at equilibrium, the system shifts in the direction that reduces stress.

Nonelectrolyte

A substance whose aqueous solutions do not conduct electricity.

Alums
