CHEM& 162 - General Chemistry II with Lab

6.0 Credits
Continuation of CHEM& 161. Topics covered will include molecular bonding and structure, liquids and solids, equilibrium, and principles of thermodynamics. Laboratory emphasizes quantitative techniques (was CHEM& 142 and CHEM& 152). Prerequisite
CHEM& 161 and MATH& 141 with grades of 2.0 or equivalent. Corequisite

Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Construct the electron configuration, orbital diagram, and/or valence shell configuration for any element in the periodic table.
  2. Use trends in periodic properties (i.e., atomic size, electron affinity, ionization energy, and electronegativity) to predict chemical and or physical properties of the elements.
  3. Construct a Lewis structure for an ionic or covalent compound, including compounds with expanded octet configurations.
  4. Predict the 3D shape and polarity of a covalently bonded molecule using VSEPR.
  5. Calculate the concentration of a solution in various units.
  6. Carry out calculations involving the colligative properties of solutions.
  7. Use critical thinking to make connections and associations between chemical principles.
  8. Keep a well organized laboratory notebook.
  9. Interpret scientific data, draw appropriate conclusions, and make changes to experimental procedures.
  10. Conduct standard laboratory procedures that may include filtration, pipeting, solution preparation, dilution, titration, colorimetric analysis, and use of common equipment and instrumentation appropriate to the knowledge and skill level of CHEM& 142.
  11. Statistically analyze data and draw appropriate conclusions regarding the accuracy and precision of the experimental results.
  12. Report scientific data in an organized and readable form.
  13. Work effectively as a member of a team.
