3 Class Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Manipulate the colligative properties to determine molality, molarity, mole fraction, % composition, osmotic pressure as well as molar masses of compounds.
2. Understand graphing techniques to ascertain the rate constants of chemical reactions; energy of activation, Ea; equilibrium constants, Kc; and acid-base dissocation constants, (Ka and Kb).
3. Understand advanced thermochemistry functions such as Enthalpy, H; Entropy, S; and Gibbs-Free Energy, G to determine feasibility of chemical reactions.
4. Understand oxidation reduction systems to illustrate the value of redox reactions such as combustion processes and their thermochemistry relationships with respect to energy generation.
5. Understand the value of natural logarithmic (ln functions) and logarithmic (log functions) in the determination of rate constants; understanding half-life for radioactive isotopes; and solution concentrations of specific analytes (i.e., pH measurements to determine hydrogen ion concentrations).
6. Understand electrochemistry as it pertains to electromotive force, Eo; oxidation reduction reactions; galvanic and electrochemical cells; battery construction; and fuel cell technology.
