CHEM 222L - General Chemistry II Lab

1 Credit(s)

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

Corequisite(s): CHEM 222 , CHEM 222R  

Course Description: Presents chemistry to pre-professional students interested in science careers (chemistry, geology, physics, biology), engineering, medicine, and veterinary medicine. Introduces the concepts of atomic chemistry, chemical equations, stoichiometry, the gas laws, thermochemistry, the periodic table, and chemical bonding. An introduction to the chemical laboratory is presented. 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: Interpret laboratory data to draw conclusions about general chemistry experiments.
  • CLO#9: Use the chemical literature to locate and analyze information relevant to a specific question in chemistry.
  • CLO#10: Learn how to perform hazard assessment, SDS, and learn safety techniques.
