General Chemistry II with Laboratory

Summer 2014 quarter (Session II)

Taught by

Hilary Palevsky


Successful completion of the first half of a year-long college level course in general chemistry or the equivalent.

This course is designed to offer the equivalent of the second half of a year-long course in general chemistry. The topics to be presented will include thermochemistry, properties and physical changes of matter, solution chemistry, kinetics, thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium, acid-base chemistry, and aqueous equilibria. Additional topics in electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and coordination chemistry may be presented if time permits. Course activities will include lectures, small-group problem-solving workshops, and laboratories. Laboratory work will build upon the skills learned in General Chemistry I, and provide hands-on experience with additional methods relevant to the topics presented in lecture. This is part two of a two course sequence, that together cover one year of general chemistry with lab.
