Taking introductory chemistry, or need a quick chemistry reference? Then you need the Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant. This comprehensive app for chemistry will help you quickly solve your homework problems, ace your tests, and quiz your understanding of basic chemistry concepts so you're prepared for your courses. Forget canned examples! The Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant solves your specific chemistry problems on the fly.
This app covers the following topics applicable to Introductory Chemistry, General Chemistry, and AP Chemistry:
- Determine properties of elements, chemicals, and ions
- Compute properties of gases using various gas laws
- Perform stoichiometric conversions for solutions
- Balance equations
- Compute the enthalpy, equilibrium constant, and theoretical yield of a reaction
- Perform over 45 different computations
The Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.
The Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 2G, 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.
What's New in Version 1.1.1
Bug fixes. Retina iPad, iPhone 5 support.
Not very useful
Waste of $5. The interface isn't very intuitive. Considering this is just a modified interface for accessing wolfram alpha(or so it seems), it would be nice if it at least made things more accessible than within the regular wolfram alpha application.
I couldn't tell that it did anything that couldn't be done with the regular wolfram alpha app. It's just a skin for it with limited features available.
It wouldn't be too bad, but wolfram's chemistry capabilities aren't great. It has lots of information, but it doesn't do too great when you venture beyond surface level.
Just what I needed
As others say, it is a calculation and info app. Will not teach you chemistry. If you need the former, like me, then this is the best 5 dollars you'll spend!
This is a CALCULATION application
I bought this expecting a tool to help me learn ap chemistry. The app is a great calculator to get homework done but offers little help as far as review and study are concerned. The app is useful for calculations, but now for learning.
