CHEM 162 is a continuation of CHEM 161. This course introduces additional basic principles of chemistry including kinetics, equilibrium, pH, redox reactions, electrochemistry, acid-base chemistry, gas laws, electrolytes, thermodynamics, matter and changes of state, and nuclear chemistry.
“C” or higher in CHEM 161.
- Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, coordination chemistry and bio-organic chemistry.
- Students will demonstrate, in their appropriate context, critical thinking skills and processes such as observation, classification, prediction, inference, measurement, making operational definitions, hypothesizing, experimentation, modeling, and theorization.
- Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of qualitative and quantitative chemical symbolism, nomenclature, chemical classification scheme, atomic and molecular modeling and bonding theories.
- Students will be exposed to, and address the benefits and hazards of scientific and chemical literacy, questions of scientific ethics, and chemical applications to the environment.
- Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of various quantitative and mathematical methods used in chemistry such as dimensional analysis, graphic analysis, statistical analysis and molar stoichiometry.
