CHM 111 - College Chemistry II

Lecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 3 Credits: 4

Description: (For students continuing in chemistry) this course is a continuation of the study of atomic and molecular structure, nomenclature and equations, properties, reactions and states of matter, stoichiometry, gas laws, solutions, and equilibria. Other topics included are kinetics, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry.

Prerequisite(s): Take CHM 110  with a minimum grade of C.
Course Topics:
  • Principles of Thermochemistry
  • Study of enthalpy, entropy and free energy changes of physical and chemical reactions
  • Solutions and their properties
  • Calculations involving units of concentration and colligative properties
  • Study of chemical kinetics and calculation of reaction rates
  • Study of chemical equilibria and calculation of equilibrium concentrations and equilibrium constant
  • Study of Le-Chatlier’s principle
  • Description and application of aqueous equilibria
  • Principles of electrochemistry and calculation of standard reduction potentials
  • Structure, properties and IUPAC names of organic compounds

Textbook information can be found on the Book Inn website
Required Materials:
  • A scientific calculator (no cell phone calculator)
  • Safety goggles for the laboratory
  • Solutions manual (optional) for McMurry & Fay’s Chemistry
  • All lecture notes will be posted on the Science Department Website.
  • Any additional resources (handouts) will be provided to the Student by the Instructor.

Grading System:
An overall grade of C or higher is required for transferability.

A = 90 - 100
B = 80 - 89
C = 70 - 79
D = 60 - 69
F =   0 - 59

Student Learning Outcomes:
  1. Apply the Hess’s law of summation to determine the enthalpy, entropy, or free energy of a chemical reaction using either bond dissociation energy table or table of standard molar energy of formation.
  2. Perform calorimetry calculations using appropriate thermodynamic principle.
  3. Determine the components of a rate law of a chemical reaction given the appropriate experimental data.
  4. Describe the integrated rate law for a zero, first and second order reactions.
  5. Apply the rate law to determine the rate constant and half-life of the reactions.
  6. Write IUPAC systematic names for organic compounds.
  7. Draw the condensed structures for molecules in each of the organic functional group families.
