Resonance stabilization is the energy of a real molecule compared with its anticipated energy for the best resonance structure that may be drawn for the said molecule. The anticipated energy is based on the types and amo... More »

The concept of resonance is a useful method for illustrating the chemical makeup of a compound when that compound is not representative of a single Lewis structure but is, rather, a hybrid of multiple Lewis structures. T... More » Science Chemistry

Some examples of resonance are a pendulum, a playground swing, a tuning fork and a human voice at a pitch sufficient to shatter glass. Resonance is a vibration system or external force driving another system to oscillate... More »

In chemistry, resonance is a method of comparing and contrasting two or more different Lewis dot structures that can possibly represent a molecule. It illustrates the delocalization of electrons within molecules. Delocal... More »

Everything that moves has kinetic energy. The wind causing things such as leaves and branches to move and moving water are two examples of kinetic energy for kids. More »

Inelastic collisions are collisions between objects that do not conserve kinetic energy but do conserve momentum. They often occur between various molecules during chemical reactions. More »

Making a can that "magically" rolls back toward the person who sent it away and designing a roller coaster track for marbles are two science projects displaying kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is the type of energy that i... More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics
