This course is a continuation of the study of the fundamental principles of chemistry with an emphasis physical chemistry. Topics of study include chemical equilibrium, acid/base chemistry, chemical kinetics, nuclear chemistry, thermodynamics and electrochemistry. The course also includes some descriptive chemistry of a selection of main group elements and transition metals. Lab sessions illustrate and reinforce most of the topics presented in the lectures.
Successful completion of this course and its companion CHEM 110 will satisfy the requirement for 6 credits of first year chemistry in the science programs at most Canadian and US universities.
Prerequisites: CHEM 110, Mathematics 12 (MATH 060)
