"Use the molar mass of Hg to convert your result to a value of molar enthalpy of vapourization in units of J/mol." Now, that's chemistry! If you've got a bit of the chemical adventurer in you, try Corel's ChemLab. This innovative and highly detailed CD-ROM puts you in the middle of your own laboratory, complete with chemicals, Geiger counter, pH meter, burette and even a gas lab. You can perform 25 experiments: Measure the half-life of an isotope or find the missing exponents in the kinetic rate equation of a chemical reaction. There's also a Periodic Table, a Molecule Viewer and an online textbook. The best part is, you won't blow up the house when you mix the wrong chemicals.

$79. Corel Corp., 800-772-6735, 613-728-8200.
