This site compliments the Chem 106 Prep site used by students at St. Mary's College of Maryland. There are three main text resources used in the course. These include, , .
This vCalc collection is an index into the different vCalc enabled chapters in the. by Dr. Kelly Neiles, with a unique feature of vCalc enabled formulas. Wherever the user sees a solvable formula, vCalc had activated a link behind the formula that pops-up a calculator with that formula preloaded. This give the reader the ability to use the formula in an accurate calculator at moment they encounter it. Furthermore, at the top of every page is a formulary box containing a quick reference of all of the formulas that appear in the chapter.
The Table of Contents below shows the name of the Chapter and Sub-chapters of this Chemistry text. However, vCalc hopes to have many more chemistry textbooks in the future. Therefore, the individual collection pages will have the following naming convention: Chm1 XX abcde. Where Chm1 stands for this specific chemistry text (Chem 106 Prep Site SP 16), XX stands for the chapter (e.g. 11 for Chapter 11), and abcde is the easy name for the chapter or sub-chapter (e.g. Solubility). Therefore the name of the first vCalc collection in this index will be Chm1 11 Solubility. Furthermore every equation and constant in this text will have a Chm1 tag for the overall text and the formulas in specific chapters will have tags linking them to the chapter (e.g. Chm1 11). However, this tagging will not go to the sub-chapter.
