CHEM 222R - General Chemistry II Recitation

1 Credit(s)

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 221 , CHEM 221L , CHEM 221R  and MTH 95  

Corequisite(s): CHEM 222 , CHEM 222L  

Course Description: Continues topics presented in CHEM221. Exposes students to the liquid and solid states of matter, solution properties, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, and chemical solubility. More complex instruments and tools found in chemical laboratories are introduced and used in the lab. Students must enroll in lecture, laboratory, and recitation sections. All three sections must be taken concurrently. 

Course Level: Lower Division Collegiate

Course Learning Outcomes:
  • CLO#1: Use the metric system, scientific notation, significant figures, and conversion factors to perform general chemistry calculations.
  • CLO#2: Use VSEPR and molecular orbital theory to explain molecular characteristics such as shape, polarity, and resonance.
  • CLO#3: Use quantitative methods to describe and explain the characteristics of solids, liquids, gases, and solutions.
  • CLO#4: Use rate laws to draw conclusions about reaction mechanisms.
  • CLO#5: Calculate and predict outcomes of reactions based on equilibrium constants and Le Chatelier’s principle.
  • CLO#6: Use the quadratic formula, successive approximations, and other calculator methods to solve equilibrium and acid/base problems. (ILO: Quantitative Literacy and Reasoning)
  • CLO#7: Describe and explain the properties of acids, bases, and salts, with an emphasis on the concept of acid-base pairs.
  • CLO#8: Use the chemical literature to locate and analyze information relevant to a specific question in chemistry.
