CHEM 1030 - General Chemistry II
This course emphasizes chemical kinetics, heterogeneous and aqueous equilibria, chemical thermodynamics, acids and bases, electrochemistry, coordination chemistry, and some descriptive inorganic and organic chemistry.
Instructional Method Lecture and Lab
CHEM 1020 General Chemistry I with grade of C or better
Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of CHEM 1030 General Chemistry II , the student will:
- Explain whether a given chemical system is at equilibrium or how it will move towards equilibrium.
- Explain how changes in conditions will affect the position of a given system at or approaching a state of dynamic chemical equilibrium.
- Predict the characteristics of a system involving an acid/base, precipitation or reduction-oxidation reaction that has reached dynamic chemical equilibrium.
- Interpret chemical thermodynamic properties of a given chemical system, including but not limited to enthalpy, entropy, free energy, cell potential and the equilibrium constant.
- Predict how changes in conditions, especially concentration and temperature, will affect the thermodynamics of a given chemical system.
- Predict the kinetic behavior of a given chemical system by analyzing its macroscopic (temperature, surface area, concentration, catalyst) and microscopic (activation energy, particulate kinetic energy) properties.
- Interpret nuclear phenomena including but not limited to alpha decay, beta decay, half-life, fission and fusion.
- Develop techniques needed to use instrumentation in quantitative laboratory work.
- Communicate chemical concepts in written and oral form.
