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.
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.
