CH 223 - General Chemistry 3

4 Credit(s)

Lecture for the third course of the traditional general chemistry sequence designed for science, engineering and health science majors. Builds on previous topics and includes applications of equilibrium, acid/base chemistry, redox/electrochemistry, thermodynamics, nuclear chemistry and introductory organic chemistry. It is recommended to take the accompanying lab, CH 229 (2 credits), at the same time as the lecture.

Prerequisite: CH 222  
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:

1. Interpret, communicate, and analyze data and error to explore ideas, models and solutions and generate further questions

2. Engage students in problem-solving and investigation, through the application of scientific and mathematical methods and concepts, and by using evidence to create and test models and draw conclusions. The goal should be to develop analytical thinking that includes evaluation, synthesis, and reactive insight

3. Use and describe real life situations as examples to demonstrate and explain key chemical concepts

4. Use the vocabulary of chemistry to explain, discuss and solve problems about equilibrium systems, acid base reactions, redox reactions and nuclear chemistry, stoichiometry, solutions, gases, thermochemistry, atomic structure and periodicity

5. Examine relationships with other subject areas, including the ethical application of science in human society, and the relevance of science to everyday life
