Course Outcomes
  • Predict properties of pure substances using phase diagrams.
  • Predict properties (boiling point, melting point, osmotic pressure, vapor pressure) of solutions based on concentration.
  • Determine reaction rate law and calculate rate constants and half-life based on experimental data.
  • Calculate the equilibrium concentration of chemicals in solution involved in precipitation, and acid-base and reactions.
  • Predict spontaneous reactions based on enthalpy and entropy considerations.
  • Determine the electrochemical potential of redox reactions.
