General Chemistry 2
Continuation of General Chemistry 1. The topics covered by this course are: chemical reactivity, chemical calculations, properties of gases, liquids and solids, thermochemistry, colligative properties, and chemical kinetics.
Chemical reactivity is studied in this chapter: precipitation, acid-base reactions, oxidation-reduction reactions, combination and decomposition, replacement reactions, combustion
Classical chemical calculations are studied in this chapter: the concept of a mole, the atomic, molecular and molar masses, the relationship between mass, mole and number of particles, the mass percent of an element, the combustion analysis, chemical equations (coefficients and stoichiometry), limiting reagent and yield calculation
Chemical calculations for solutions are studied in this chapter: the definition of a solution, molarity versus molality, electrolytes, dilution of a solution, precipitation reactions, acid-base titrations
Properties of gases are studied in this chapter: gas pressure, gas laws, ideal gas equation, relationship between molar volume, molar mass and density, Dalton’s law of partial pressures, kinetic theory and speed distribution, Graham’s law of effusion, mean free path, Van der Waals equation
Thermochemistry is studied in this chapter: internal energy, heat and work, enthalpy, Hess’s law, enthalpy of formation, bond enthalpies, heat capacity
Liquids and solids are studied in this chapter: intermolecular forces, phase transitions, heating curves, phase diagrams, properties of liquids, vapor pressure, relative humidity, crystal structures and forces, colloids.
Colligative properties of solutions are studied in this chapter: solution concentrations, solutions and solubility, gas solubility and Henry’s law, Raoult’s law, boiling point elevation, freezing point depression, osmotic pressure
Rate laws in chemical kinetics are studied in this chapter: reaction rates, first-order and second-order reactions (specific rate of reaction, relation between concentration and time, half-time), radioactive decay
Mechanisms in chemical kinetics are studied in this chapter: elementary reactions, intermediates, activation energy, Arrhenius equation, rate-determining step, reversible reactions, catalysis
