CHEM 106 - Principles of General Chemistry 2

Number of Credits: 4
Principles of General Chemistry 2 is a continuation of CHEM 105  for students who intend to major in chemistry, life sciences and other areas that require a minimum of one semester and/or one year of college chemistry. Topics covered in the course include the study of intermolecular forces in liquids and solids, phase changes, properties of solutions, chemical kinetics, gaseous and aqueous equilibria, acids and bases, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and introduction to nuclear, organic and biological chemistry. Advanced Placement Exam (Chemistry with a score of 4) accepted. (Fall & Spring Only) Three hours lecture. Three hours laboratory. Four Credits. Four billable hours.

Pre-requisite(s): CHEM 105  and MATH 123  with a minimum grade of C or better.
Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  1. Recognize, relate and explain the properties that affect liquids and solids and influence their change of state. (PG2, PG3)
  2. Describe the factors that affect solutions and solve math related problems. (PG1, PG2)
  3. Explain chemical kinetics and the effects on chemical reactions. (PG2)
  4. Describe the factors that affect chemical equilibria and solve math related problems. (PG2, PG3)
  5. Understand chemical reactions that involve acids and bases, their effects and solve pH for buffer systems and acid-base equilibria. (PG1, PG3)
  6. Predict and solve spontaneous reaction based on states, enthalpy, entropy and free energy of reactions. (PG2, PG3)
  7. Solve oxidation-reduction and electrochemical reactions to predict spontaneous and non-spontaneous reactions. (PG2, PG4)
  8. Recognize the process involving select nuclear reactions (including half-lives and curies), nomenclature of organic chemistry (including different functional groups) and biological chemistry with relevance to interactions with such compounds. (PG2, PG4)
  9. Perform collaborative laboratory explorations to reinforce understanding of chemical concepts, develop mastery in proper measuring techniques and laboratory report writing and relate lab experience to applications of chemistry in daily life. (PG1, PG4)
  10. Research and present information on selected topics from the course using various modes of communication (oral, written, and visual). (PG1, PG4)
