Video 1.1: Covalent Bonding

What is covalent bonding and how does it relate to solid state physics? In this video we take a look at the wave function of a simple covalent bond using quantum mechanics, discuss hybridization of atomic orbitals, then relate the structure of a compound with covalent bonds to its hybridized orbitals.

Video 1.2: Dipole Interactions

What are dipole interactions? We begin by discussing metallic bonding and relating it to the electron in a box model. From there, we tackle dipole and induced dipole interactions, including the London dispersion force and Van der Waals bonding.
