This course quantitatively examines reactions and equilibria in chemical systems with an emphasis on their thermodynamic properties and chemical kinetics. The course begins with a close examination of solutions followed by dynamic chemical equilibrium. This leads directly to acid/base and solubility equilibria and thermochemistry, including calorimetry. The course concludes with thermodynamics, kinetics and electrochemistry with a strong emphasis on the how these are connected to Gibbs Free Energy. This course includes a three hour laboratory every other week.
[MATA29H3 or MATA30H3] and [MATA35H3 or MATA36H3] are required for some higher level Physical and Environmental Sciences courses.
