52112 General Chemistry (2)

Course Description

General chemistry (2) is a one semester course designed to provide a survey of inorganic and physical chemistry and introduction to organic chemistry for non-science and allied health majors. Topics studied in this course include: Laboratory equipment; Gases; Solutions; chemical equilibrium & Acid, Bases, Salts. Quantitative reasoning skills are developed and used where appropriate to enhance the understanding of these concepts. The medical and environmental applications of topics covered in lecture are highlighted

Learning Objective

  • On completion of this course, students should be able to:
  • 1. Solve quantitative chemistry problems and demonstrate reasoning clearly and completely. Integrate multiple ideas in the problem solving process.
  • 2. Calculate and utilize solution concentration units such as molarity.
  • 3. Understand the ideal gas law and its application in quantitative problems
  • 4. Perform and describe the Laboratory equipments such as: Gases; Solutions; chemical equilibrium & Acid, Bases, Salts
  • 5. Perform general chemistry laboratory experiments using standard chemistry glassware and equipment and demonstrate appropriate safety procedures.
  • 6. Apply important theories such as the Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases or the Quantum Mechanical Theory of the Atom to the solution of general chemistry problems.
  • 7. Record, graph, chart and interpret data obtained from experimentation and use that information to correctly identify/analyze assigned unknown substances.
  • 8. Quantitative reasoning skills are developed and used where appropriate to enhance the understanding of these concepts
