CHE 1520

General Chemistry II

4 Credits

This course is a continuation of General Chemistry I.

GE Outcomes: Critical Thinking, Quantitative Literacy

Completion of CHE 1510 or equivalent is recommended, including knowledge of stoichiometry, chemical nomenclature, Lewis structures and gas laws. This course explores the principles of solution chemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibria, thermodynamics, acid-base theory and electrochemistry. Other topics such as nuclear chemistry, coordination chemistry, transition metal chemistry and other timely topics may be included.

Both conceptual development and problem solving are emphasized. The laboratory section of the course involves application and amplification of the concepts developed in the course, including qualitative analysis to illustrate equilibria concepts. This course provides skills required for Organic Chemistry. Course/lab fees.
