CH 182 - University Chemistry II

Credit Hours: 3

The second course of a two-course sequence; detailed introduction to chemistry for science, engineering, or health-related majors. Example topics include: intermolecular forces, colligative properties, chemical kinetics, equilibria, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and organic chemistry.

Course Outcomes
At the completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  • compare and explain the properties of solutions, mixtures and colloidal dispersions;
  • predict and write equations for ionic reactions in aqueous solution;
  • determine rate laws, calculate rates of chemical reactions and reconcile rate laws with reaction mechanisms;
  • predict shifts in chemical equilibria in accordance with LeChatelier's Principle;
  • calculate equilibrium constants for gaseous reactions, weak acids/bases and sparingly soluble salts, and use these constants to calculate concentrations of species in solution;
  • calculate the pH of strong acids/bases, weak acids/bases, buffer solutions, hydrolysable salts and polyprotic acids;
  • interpret acid/base chemistry according to Bronsted Theory;
  • calculate and explain the concepts of enthalpy, entropy and free energy with respect to the Three Laws of Thermodynamics;
  • identify oxidizing agents and reducing agents and balance redox reactions; and
  • classify organic compounds by functional group and give IUPAC names for hydro-carbons and simple members of other groups.

Prerequisites: CH 180
Corequisites: CH 183 (lab) is highly recommended as a co-requisite.
