CHEM 134 - Adv. General Chemistry for Engineering

Number of Credits: 1
Advanced General Chemistry for Engineering is a course for those students who intend to major in engineering fields and wish to pursue their further education at the University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP). Upon completion of Carroll’s CHEM 105  and this course, the students will have met the requirement of UMCP’s CHEM-135 gateway course in their engineering department. This add-on module to CHEM 105  is not equivalent to nor does it satisfy the stand-alone CHEM 106  course for any program/discipline. Topics covered in the course include equilibria, kinetics, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, and a more in-depth emphasis on the properties of materials. (Winter term) One hour lecture One Credit. One billable hour.

Pre-requisite(s): CHEM 105  and MATH 123  with a minimum grade of C or better and department chair approval.
Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  1. Explain the properties that affect solids and liquids and influence their change of state.
  2. Describe the factors that affect solids, liquids and solutions and solve math related problems.
  3. Qualitatively and quantitatively, describe and predict the reactions of chemicals, and perform thermochemistry analyses of these reactions.
  4. Explain chemical kinetics and the effects on chemical reactions and solve math related problems on rate laws.
  5. Describe and calculate the factors that affect chemical equilibria
  6. Solve acid-base math related problems and reactions involving acid-base equilibria.
  7. Solve oxidation-reduction and electrochemical reactions to predict spontaneous and non-spontaneous reactions and relate its application in various engineering fields such as but not limited to cell potentials.
  8. Identify the functional groups in organic chemistry with an understanding of general organic reactions and application of polymer and organic chemistry in various engineering fields.
