CHEM1112 – General Inorganic Chemistry II pdf

Credits: 5 (4/1/0)
Description: Meets MnTC Goal Areas 2 and 3. This course is the second course of a two-course series (CHEM1111 and CHEM1112). Students will learn the general chemistry principles: solution chemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acid-base chemistry, solubility equilibrium, thermodynamics, oxidation-reduction, electrochemistry, coordination chemistry, nuclear chemistry and introductory environmental chemistry. The course includes a lab.
