CHM 146 L - General Chemistry II Laboratory
Continuation of CHM 145 Laboratory with experiments designed to illustrate thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, qualitative analysis, and electro-chemistry.
Corequisite: CHM 146 General Chemistry II
3 Laboratory Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Determine the molar mass of compounds from freezing point depression, boiling point elevation, vapor pressure lowering and/or osmotic pressure.
2. Utilize graphing techniques and linear regression analysis to calculate rate constants, equilibrium constants, Kc and acid-base dissociation constants.
3. Understand acid-base systems, pH and buffer solutions (calculating pH values for buffers using the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
4. Understand the Laws of Thermodynamics to calculate Enthalpy, H; Entropy, S; and Gibbs-Free Energy, G. These interpretations will be used to determine exothermic/endothermic nature of chemical reactions as well as feasibility.
5. Understand how to use Electrochemistry to investigate oxidation reduction reactions for quantitative analysis and to understand battery construction. Electromotive force values will be determined and used to illustrate electron flow in both galvanic and electrolytic cells.
