CHM 152 General Chemistry II

Lecture: 3 Lab: 3 Clinic: 0 Credits: 4
This course provides a continuation of the study of the fundamental principles and laws of chemistry. Topics include kinetics, equilibrium, ionic and redox equations, acid-base theory, electrochemistry, thermodynamics, introduction to nuclear and organic chemistry, and complex ions. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of chemical concepts as needed to pursue further study in chemistry and related professional fields.

This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a general education course in Natural Science.  This is a Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) course.

Pre-requisite(s): C or better in CHM 151.  
Course is typically offered in Fall, Spring, and Summer.
Course has transfer restrictions - 20 years

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
At completion of the course, the student should be able to do the following:

  1. Predict the behavior of gases using the appropriate gas laws.
  2. Relate the intermolecular forces to properties of gases, liquids, and solids.
  3. Determine the forces involved among solutes and solvent molecules.
  4. Explain parameters for solution formation.
  5. Determine the concentrations of solutions.
  6. Apply chemical kinetics to chemical reactions.
  7. Explain properties of acids and bases and determine the pH of the solutions.
  8. Analyze redox reactions; 9. Apply the law of Mass Action and Le Chatleir’s principle to chemical Equilibria.
  9. Examine second and third law of thermodynamics.
  10. Apply oxidation-reductions to electrochemistry.
  11. Demonstrate competency in laboratory techniques and procedures.
