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
This course will provide a detailed examination of the properties of matter and is intended for science majors in fulfillment of the AS Degree (Option I) lab science requirements. Topics include the study of molecular polarity and states of matter, solution chemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibria, and acid/base chemistry. Formerly CHEM 122, General Chemistry II. Prerequisite: Grade of C- or higher in CHEM&161. This course satisfies the chemistry requirement for the nursing degree.

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.
