CHEM 198 - Chemistry Topics for UMCP-Special Topic

Number of Credits: 1
Chemistry Topics for UMCP, is a special topics course for those students who intend to major in engineering fields and wish to pursue their further education at University of Maryland College Park (UMCP). Upon completion of CHEM 105  and this course, the students would 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 and nor does it satisfy the stand-alone CHEM 106  course for any program / discipline. Topics covered in the course include properties of solids and liquids, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acid-base reactions and equilibrium, electrochemistry, and an introduction to organic chemistry. One hour lecture each week. One Credit. One billable hour.

Pre-requisite(s): exemption/completion of CHEM 105  and MATH-128 with minimum grades of C or better; or consent of the department chair.
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. (PG1 and PG4)
  2. Describe the factors that affect solids, liquids and solutions and solve math related problems. (PG1, PG3, and PG4)
  3. Explain chemical kinetics and the effects on chemical reactions and solve math related problems on rate laws. (PG1, PG2, PG3, and PG4)
  4. Describe and calculate the factors that affect chemical equilibria (PG1, PG3, and PG4)
  5. Solve acid-base math related problems and reactions involving acid-base equilibria. (PG1, PG3, and PG4)
  6. 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. (PG1, PG3, and PG4)
  7. Identify the functional groups in organic chemistry with an understanding of general organic reactions and its application in various engineering fields. (PG1, PG2, PG3, and PG4)
