Course Objectives To present the role chemistry play in engineering, environment and society, enable students to understand energy concepts, inform the students about the atom and molecular structure, gases and solutions.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Differentiate the role of chemistry play in engineering, environment and society.
  • Perform stoichiometric calculations by using the mole concept.
  • Predict the usefulness of the periodic table in correlating chemical and physical properties of the elements.
  • Define energy concepts and understand particularly the difference between heat and temperature.
  • Criticize the knowledge base that serves as a foundation for theoretical concepts which deal with atomic structure and bonding.
  • Explain the atomic and electronic structures and discuss the irregularity in the periodic trends in ionization energy and electron affinity.
  • Describe the Molecular Orbital Theory.
  • Explore the general facts of gases and their behavior.
  • List the types of the intermolecular attraction forces and explain their differences.
  • Apply Kinetic Theory and calculate the rate constant, the rate order and the half-life of a reaction.
  • Determine activation energy graphically and interrelate rate constants, activation energy and temperature.
  • Perform experiments on the application of the chemistry on different concepts by laboratory practices and evaluate the results.
Course Content Basic concepts of chemistry, stoichiometric calculations based on the mole concept, solid, liquid and gas phases, chemical kinetics.
