CH 302 - Chemistry III

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This elective has been designed to provide students with the third quarter of a one-year general chemistry course. This allows students to more thoroughly understand such subjects as thermochemistry, electrochemistry, solution chemistry and the chemical theories relevant to conductors, semiconductors and transition metals. CH 302, a three-credit course, allows students to meet the general chemistry requirements for graduate school and medical school when taking the CH 303  lab component (a one-credit laboratory course offered in a subsequent quarter), and specifically covers material that is normally found on the MCAT and FE/PE exams. (prereq: CH 201 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Be exposed in more depth to Quantum Mechanics
  • Be exposed in more depth to various topics involved in Phase Change
  • Understand the chemistry of transition metals including Crystal Field Theory, Molecular Orbital Theory and the Complex Ion Formuation
  • Understand Thermodynamics including Electrochemistry
  • Expand their knowledge of solution chemistry

Prerequisites by Topic
  • Two university level chemistry courses

Course Topics
  • Quantum Mechanics
  • Various Topics of Phase Change
  • Chemistry of Transition Metals
  • Thermodynamics including Electrochemistry
  • Solution chemistry
