Fall 2008

Chemical Principles

Listed in: Chemistry, as CHEM-12

Faculty

Amira A. Choucair (Section 01)

Description

The concepts of thermodynamic equilibrium and kinetic stability are studied. Beginning with the laws of thermodynamics, we will develop a quantitative understanding of the factors which determine the extent to which chemical reactions can occur before reaching equilibrium. Chemical kinetics is the study of the factors, such as temperature, concentrations, and catalysts, which determine the speeds at which chemical reactions occur. Appropriate laboratory experiments supplement the lecture material. Four class hours and three hours of laboratory work per week. Fall semester: Visiting Professor Choucair. Spring semester: Professors Leung and Marshall. Requisite: Chemistry 11 or 15 (this requirement may be waived for exceptionally well-prepared students; consent of the instructor is required); and Mathematics 11 or its equivalent. Fall and Spring semesters.
