CHEM 111 - Inorganic Chemistry 2 (and Lab)

5 credits

A continuation of Inorganic Chemistry 1 (and Lab), this course provides an in-depth study of solutions, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, aqueous equilibria, thermodynamics, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry. Topics emphasized include solution composition, colligative properties, reaction rates and mechanisms, equilibrium calculations, Le Châtelier’s principle, weak acid-base equilibria, buffers, hydrolysis, solubility product, entropy, free energy, electrochemical cells and radioactive decay. Laboratory experiments include qualitative analysis of cations and quantitative analytical techniques.

Notes: Inorganic Chemistry 2 is the second semester of a one-year (two-semester) comprehensive general chemistry course designed for science or engineering majors transferring to a four-year college or for students fulfilling prerequisites for medical school or related programs.

Prerequisites: CHEM 107 Inorganic Chemistry 1 (and Lab) , with a grade of “C” or higher, and MATH 130 College Algebra: Functions & Models  or a higher level math course (except MATH 138 Elements of Geometry  and MATH 140 Statistics ).

Offered in fall and spring semesters and Summer Session 2.
