CHEM& 142 - General Chemistry II

4.0 Credits
Continuation of CHEM& 141 (was CHEM 131). Molecular bonding and structure, liquids and solids, equilibrium, and principles of thermodynamics. Laboratory emphasizes quantitative techniques (was CHEM 132) Prerequisite: CHEM& 141  (was CHEM 131) and MATH& 141  (was MATH 131) with grades of 2.0 or equivalent.

Course Objectives
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. [REASON]
  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. [REASON]
  3. Construct a Lewis structure for an ionic or covalent compound, including compounds with expanded octet configurations. [REASON ]
  4. Predict the 3-D shape and polarity of a covalently bonded molecule using VSEPR. [REASON]
  5. Calculate the concentration of a solution in various units. [REASON]
  6. Carry out calculations involving the colligative properties of solutions. [REASON]
  7. Use critical thinking to make connections and associations between chemical principles. [REASON]
