Most widely held works by Wexler Film Productions
Electrochemical cells( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the construction and operation of an electrochemical cell. Time-lapse photography of the changes at the electrodes and animation of the cell processes show the nature of the electrode reactions, the motion of the electron and ion currents, and the relationship between concentrations and cell voltage. Extreme close-ups of a hydrogen electrode illustrate its operation and lead to a discussion of the table of E⁰ values
Chemical families( Visual )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A display of actual samples of over 70 elements demonstrates methods by which chemical similarities among the elements have provided a basis for dividing them into families. By experiment and observation, elements are classified as metals or nonmetals, and some are shown to be chemically reactive, while others are inert
Equilibrium( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deals with three questions: what is chemical equilibrium, how does the chemist recognize it, and how does one explain it. Stresses the dynamic nature of equilibrium and uses radioactive tracers to demonstrate the dynamic behavior of substances at equilibrium in a closed system. Uses an analogy in terms of fish population in two connected bowls, and animation using molecular models, to present the concepts
The hydrogen atom : as viewed by quantum mechanics( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses the hydrogen atom to present the current view of atomic structure given by quantum mechanics
The Rates of chemical reactions( Visual )

3 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates the mechanisms of some simple chemical reactions. Explains the effect of temperature, activation energy, geometry of collision, and catalysis upon the rate of reaction
Gases and how they combine( Visual )

4 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows some properties that distinguish gases. The volume of ammonia and hydrogen chloride that combine are measured quantitatively, and simple integer volume ratios are measured for the combinations of hydrogen and chlorine. Interprets these simple integer ratios in terms of Avogadro's hypothesis
Acid base indicators( Visual )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses the proton donor-acceptor theory to interpret the experimental behavior of acid-base indicators. Experiments and animation show the effects on indicators of changing acidity, determines equilibrium constants of four indicators, and arranges the indicators in order of decreasing acid strength. Shows the competition among bases for protons by mixing the indicators and illustrates that each changes color at different total acidity
Catalysis by Mike Bowker( Visual )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emphasizes that catalysts are typical chemical reactants, unique in that catalysts are regenerated during the reaction
Gas pressure and molecular collisions( Visual )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video relates macroscopic properties of gases to the kinetic behaviour of molecules using dynamic models and experiments. In particular, it explores the relationship between gaseous pressure and molecular collisions
Electric interactions in chemistry( Visual )

3 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demonstrates the relation of electric force to distance of separation of charged bodies and shows how this relation helps to explain ion migration and chemical reactions. The migration of positive and negative ions in an electric field and their mutual precipitation are shown in time-lapse photography and in animation
Yucky stuff( Visual )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet Capt. Yuck, a new superhero dedicated to ridding the world of "yucky stuff"--That is, those acts and objects that can transmit germs and disease. Capt. Yuck counsels kids in a realistic, good-natured way, about how germs are spread through coughing, sneezing, eating someone else's lunch, and by touching or playing with contaminated objects
Growing up : body, feelings, behavior( Visual )

3 editions published between 1986 and 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses live action, animation, and other visual techniques to depict the physiological changes which puberty brings to boys and girls. Shows the differences between individual growth rates, social awareness, and feelings. Reassures viewers that change is a necessary part of growing up. Also shows conception, birth, and close feelings between men and women
Chemical bonding by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates the electrical interactions among the charged particles in two atoms and shows how these interactions can result in chemical bonding
Nitric acid( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applies fundamental principles to the descriptive chemistry of nitric acid. Demonstrates how nitric acid acts as an acid, as a base, and as an oxidizing agent. Includes live action, animation, molecular models, activation energy curves, and potential energy diagrams
Molecular structure and health : a revision of Biochemistry and molecular structure( Visual )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demonstrates the relationship of molecular structure to biological activity using sulfanilamide as an example. Explains that some compounds structurally similar to those in cell chromosomes may stop cancer. Uses time lapse microphotography to show how 5-fluorouracil acts on cancer cells
Ionization energy( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents two methods of measuring ionization energy--photo-ionization and electron bombardment. Shows the use of a high vacuum system with a simple conductivity cell. Demonstrates the photo-ionization of sodium by the use of mercury light source and monochromator with sodium and three inert gases. Uses animation to show what occurs on the atomic level during the ionization process. Explains the relation of ionization energy to chemical reactivity
Mechanism of an organic reaction( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies the hydrolysis of an organic ester to show that the discovery of a reaction mechanism includes a determination of the chemical equation, the structures of the reactants and the products, the fate of each atom of the reactants, and the structures of the intermediate molecules. Discusses the concepts of bond polarity and the effect of varying structures of one reactant. Explains that the use of OAH and its detection on the mass spectrometer provide critical experimental data for the particular mechanism of ester hydrolysis
Human heredity( Visual )

6 editions published between 1972 and 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a concise overview of the genetic code which determines the characteristics that are passed on from parents to their children. Illustrates with microphotography, animation and new live action sequences
Vanadium : a transition element( Visual )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To illustrate typical chemical reactions of the transition elements by performing specific experiments with vanadium
Live or die. by Caroline S Van Meter( Visual )

4 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the autopsy findings of two unrelated individuals, a pathologist reconstructs the lifestyles which led to their premature deaths
