CHEM& 163 General Chemistry III • 6 Cr.




Third in a three-course chemistry sequence for science and engineering students. Prerequisite: CHEM& 162 with a C or better.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Explain how equilibrium concepts apply to chemical systems, including acids and bases, slightly soluble ionic compounds, and complex ions.
  • Solve word problems for chemical systems at equilibrium to determine equilibrium constants, pH, and concentrations.
  • Predict and quantify the chemical behavior of acids and bases in aqueous solutions.
  • Discuss and quantify the effects of the thermodynamic properties of enthalpy, entropy, and free energy on chemical equilibria.
  • Analyze the relationship between cell potential, free energy, and the equilibrium constant for electrochemical redox reactions in aqueous and electrochemical systems.
  • Combine valence bond theory and crystal field theory to examine magnetism, color, and biochemical and industrial applications in coordination compounds.
  • Develop laboratory practices for conducting experiments and reporting experimental results within the context of the scientific method (including the proper application of significant figures, precision, and accuracy).
  • Future plans: Use laboratory generated data and supporting activities to reach sound conclusions about chemical phenomena, models, concepts, and theories.
