CHEM 220 General Chemistry II

Course Description

This course is the continuation of CHEM 210 and is intended for students pursuing majors in physical sciences, biological sciences and engineering. The topics discussed include properties of solutions, kinetics, equilibrium, acid-base equilibria, thermodynamics, spontaneity, electrochemistry, nuclear reactions, and the chemistry of complex ions. The laboratory program extends the use of spreadsheet, graphical analysis and computer interfaced experimentation in acid-base titrations, rates of reactions, electrochemistry and volumetric analysis. A brief qualitative analysis scheme is also carried out in the laboratory program.
