CH 303 - Chemistry III Lab

0 lecture hours 2 lab hours 1 credits
Course Description
This elective has been designed to provide students with the third-quarter lab part of a one-year general chemistry course. This allows students to more thoroughly understand such subjects as thermodynamics, the chemistry of the various phases of matter, transition metals and solution chemistry. CH 303 lab, a one-credit lab course (when taken along with CH 302 , a three-credit course), allows students to meet the general chemistry requirements for graduate school and medical school, and covers material normally found on the MCAT and FE/PE exams. (prereq: none) (coreq: CH 302 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Understand the chemistry of transition metals including Crystal Field Theory, Molecular Orbital Theory, Complex Ion Formation
  • Expand their knowledge of Chemical Kinetics
  • Understand Thermodynamics, including Electrochemistry and Entropy
  • Expand their knowledge of Solutions Chemistry including acid base titrations involving weak, dipriotic acids, and investigation of colligative properties
  • Be exposed in more depth to various topics involved in Phase Change
  • Interpret data to isolate trends
  • Identify potential procedural errors after conducting a laboratory experiment
  • Demonstrate proficiency in technical communication
