Description

  • Liquid phase chemistry: solubility, colligative properties
  • Reaction kinetics, chemical equilibrium
  • Acids and bases, pH, buffer solutions
  • Thermochemistry and thermodynamics: enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs energy
  • Electrochemisty: electrochemical cells, normal potentials and cell potentials, electrolysis

Learning outcomes

A student who has passed the course:

  • Knows the concept of solubility and the factors affecting solubility, and knows how to calculate the solubilities of substances
  • Can explain how the colligative properties affect melting and boiling points of substances
  • Knows how the rate of a chemical reaction can be changed; can determine the reaction order from experimental results
  • Knows how the chemical equilibrium can be changed; can determine the equilibrium constants and equilibrium concentrations
  • Knows the concept of acid-base reactions and related phenomena; can interpret acid-base titration curves
  • Knows the basics of thermochemistry and calorimetry
  • Can represent the state of a chemical system using thermodynamical functions
  • Knows the principles of an electrochemical cell; can represent it in the language of chemistry

Working life skills:

  • Data processing by computer technology
  • Trained in using a science book written in English
