CHEM& 143 - General Chemistry III

4 Credits
Continuation of CHEM& 142. Topics covered will include principles of oxidation-reduction, acids and bases, kinetics, thermodynamics, and nuclear chemistry. Laboratory emphasizes quantitative techniques. Prerequisite: CHEM& 142 with a grade of 2.0 or higher or equivalent.

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

  1. Interpret graphical data of concentration versus time. [REASON]
  2. Calculate, using the quadratic equation if necessary, the equilibrium concentrations of reactants and products in a chemical reaction. [REASON]
  3. Calculate pH, pOH, [H+], [OH-], Ka, Kb, pka and pKb for both strong and weak acids. [REASON]
  4. Use LeChatlier’s Principle to predict the direction of a chemical reaction. [REASON]
  5. Interpret titration curves. [REASON]
  6. Explain the principles of a buffer system. [REASON]
  7. Apply the first second and third laws of thermodynamics to predict the direction of spontaneous change. [REASON]
  8. Apply a knowledge of redox reactions to a variety of problems in electrochemistry. [REASON]
  9. Use critical thinking strategies to make connections and associations between chemical principles. [REASON]
