CHMY 143NL - College Chemistry II

Credit(s): 5

Prerequisite(s): a grade of “C” or better in CHMY 141 .
Intended for science majors, this is the second of a two-semester course sequence of the general principles of modern chemistry, emphasizing the experimental nature of the science of chemistry and a more mathematical intensive approach, with emphasis on critical and analytical thought. Topics covered include solutions, equilibria, kinetics, acids and bases, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, coordination compounds, organic and biochemical compounds. Laboratory included. (Spring Semester)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Explain and give examples of the experimental nature of the science of chemistry.
  • Utilize examples from the laboratory experience to discuss the experimental nature of the science of chemistry. Demonstrate with laboratory skills understanding and use of precision and accuracy.
  • Demonstrate effective communication using scientific terminology through construction of scientific laboratory reports including analytical analysis of the work.
  • Communicate the deployment of the scientific method utilizing critical thinking skills in several laboratory experiments through an inquiry based approach.
  • Derive equations appropriate to the topics.
  • Solve chemical problems using dimensional analysis, linear regression, exponential and logarithmic functions, linear equations, and rearrangement of algebraic equations.
  • Demonstrate comprehension and expression of chemical principles conceptually and mathematically. Demonstrate spatial understanding and comprehension of bonding and the states of matter.
  • Solve increasingly complex chemical problems through analysis by integrating multiple chemical principles.
  • Apply scientific concepts and methods of inquiry.
