Course Outcomes

Molecular Models

Students will demonstrate the ability to use valence shell and molecular orbital models of bonding to predict molecular shapes, reactivity, and spectroscopic properties.

Application of Kinetic Theory of Gases

Students will be able to apply the kinetic theory of gases, including properties of ideal gases and interactions that lead to non-ideal behavior, to predict gas behavior with varied temperature, pressure and volume.

Application of Chemical Thermodynamics

Students will demonstrate the ability to use core concepts of chemical thermodynamics, with emphasis on the first and second laws, to predict physical changes and reaction outcomes based on Gibbs energies.

Application of Quantum Mechanics to Atomic Theory

Students will be able to apply concepts of the quantum mechanical nature of light and matter to explain observations that originally led to the development of atomic theory.
