CHEM134 - General Chemistry II with Lab

 

This is the second course of a two course general chemistry sequence that introduces students to the principles, terminology, methodology and worldview of chemistry. Lecture and lab topics are both descriptive and mathematical and include solution chemistry, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, aqueous ionic equilibrium, free energy, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, radioactivity, and nuclear chemistry. The laboratory component of this course is hands-on and designed for science students to learn how to make qualitative and quantitative observations about physical and chemical phenomena, make calculations, and test their own reasoning. Students will acquire skills in laboratory techniques designed to help reinforce and build upon the concepts presented in the lecture portion of the class. Students must have a safe work area available to perform laboratory activities, including working with an open flame. Students must be able to document their laboratory work using digital pictures and/or video. Students must also have room temperature storage available in order to maintain laboratory materials. Lab material for this course will only be provided once. If you need replacement lab equipment for any reason or need to retake the course later, you will need to purchase your own lab refills. This is a time and resource-intensive course. Students intending to use this course to satisfy prerequisites for pre-professional programs should verify that the CHEM133 and CHEM134 course sequence meets the requirements of their intended program prior to enrollment. In order to be successful in this course, students must have successfully completed CHEM 133 General Chemistry I with Lab or equivalent. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials at substantial cost that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details. (Prerequisite: CHEM133)
