Course Objectives To enable students to understand acid base equilibria, buffer solutions, thermodynamics, electrical and nuclear energy.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Study the equilibrium condition both qualitatively and quantitatively.
  • Explain the factors that affect the composition of an equilibrium system.
  • Discuss the acids and bases concept.
  • Calculate pH values from hydrogen and hydroxide ion concentrations and calculate hydrogen and hydroxide ion concentrations from the measured pH of a solution.
  • Apply the concepts of strong acids and bases.
  • Examine the chemical equilibria that exist in solutions of weak acids and bases.
  • Explain the solubility concept.
  • Calculate Ksp from the molecular solubility of the salt.
  • Discuss the concepts of thermodynamics and study the fundamental factors that determine the spontaneity of change and equilibrium.
  • Study the electrochemical changes, called electrochemistry.
  • Describe the applications of electrochemistry.
  • Discuss reactivity, nuclear stability, transmutation and nuclear binding energy.
  • Perform experiments on the application of the chemistry on different concepts by laboratory practices and evaluate the results.
Course Content Basic concepts of acids and bases, neutralization reactions, buffer solutions, laws of thermodynamics, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry.
