Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. assign oxidation states, balance and apply concepts of free energy to redox equations.
2. identify different types of acids and bases.
3. solve problems in aqueous equilibrium and acid/base chemistry, and apply concepts of free energy to the equilibrium reactions.
4. explain how temperature, pressure and other atmospheric conditions affect reaction equilibria and kinetics.
5. describe the fundamental properties of solids, liquids and gases and phase transformations between them.
6. have a working knowledge of basic laboratory techniques, such as titrations and pH measurements.
7. articulate and follow ethical principles in a laboratory context.
8. connect chemical principles to real-world problems by analyzing scientific data related to a problem of societal or technological concern.
