CHEM& 162
General Chemistry II w/Lab


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 70

AA Discipline: [Natural Sciences]

Lecture Hours:40    Lab Hours:30


Description
Study of molecular polarity and states of matter, solution chemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibria, and acid/base chemistry. Prerequisite: CHEM&161. Formerly CHEM 122, General Chemistry II.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Predict the molecular shape and polarity of simple compounds or functional groups using VSEPR; identify sigma and pi bonding.
  • Apply intermolecular forces and the kinetic molecular theory to the behavior of solids, liquids and gases; solve quantitative problems using the Ideal Gas Law; interpret phase diagrams.
  • Distinguish colloids from solutions; calculate solution concentrations in a variety of units; predict the solubility of solids and gases in water; differentiate between osmosis and diffusion.
  • Predict the effects of concentration, temperature and catalysts on reaction rate; solve quantitative kinetics problems.
  • Solve quantitative equilibrium problems; apply Le Chatelier’s Principle in order to predict shifts in reactions at equilibrium.
  • Identify Bronsted-Lowry acids and bases; differentiate between strong and weak acids and bases; list common household or physiologic acids and bases; perform pH and pOH calculations.
  • Demonstrate the safe use of laboratory glassware, equipment and reagents in order to illustrate concepts and gather data; critique laboratory data in terms of precision, accuracy and explanatory power.
