"Lec 5 - X-Ray Diffraction" Freshman Organic Chemistry (CHEM 125) Professor McBride introduces the theory behind light diffraction by charged particles and its application to the study of the electron distribution in molecules by x-ray diffraction. The roles of molecular pattern and crystal lattice repetition are illustrated by shining laser light through diffraction masks to generate patterns reminiscent of those encountered in X-ray studies of ordered solids. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
