At the end of this course, the students will be able to;

- Differentiate intermolecular forces and relate these forces to the physical properties of liquids, solids, and solutions (boiling point, freeze/melt point, and vapor pressure).
- Articulate the importance of intermolecular interactions and predict trends in physical properties
- Describe the solution process and the properties of solutions.
- Describe modern materials and their properties.
- Calculate concentrations of solutions (molarity, molality, mass percent, and mole fraction).
- Summarize the concepts of chemical kinetics and interpret chemical reactions from kinetic data.
- Determine the rate of a reaction and its dependence on concentration, time, and temperature.
- Relate the properties and characteristics of acid-base solutions to reactions.
- Apply the principles of equilibrium to aqueous systems using LeChatelier’s Principle to predict the effects of concentration, pressure, and temperature changes on equilibrium mixtures.
- Analyze and perform calculations with the thermodynamic functions, enthalpy, entropy, and free energy.
- Describe the electrochemical cells, and determine standard and non?standard cell potentials.
