Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to provide the necessary basis of the chemical science for further studies in chemistry. After passing the course the student is able to:

  • explain driving forces and kinetics of chemical reactions.
  • solve problems concerning chemical equilibrium, e.g., equilibria of acids and bases and solubility.
  • explain different types of chemical bonding and the relationship between bonding and state of aggregation and other properties of solids, solutions, and gases.
  • understand the basic laws of thermodynamics, in particular their application on chemical systems.
  • explain basic electrochemical principles.
  • discuss basic chemistry of some commonly found elements
  • use some basic laboratory techniques, analyse chemical experimental data and write laboratory reports.

 

Course content

Chemical equilibrium, e.g. equilibria of acids and bases and solubility. Intermolecular forces (chemical bonding) in gases, liquids, and solids. Colligative properties. Reaction kinetics: zero, first and second order kinetics. Activation energy and Arrhenius equation. The three laws of thermodynamics and the concepts enthalpy, entropy, and free energy. Electrochemistry. Some important elements and their properties. Three laboratory exercises illustrate important principles discussed in the course.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, lessons and laboratory exercises.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
