Course Overview

Chemistry is the study of matter and how it changes. The course looks at matter’s
composition, properties, and transformations. In this semester, you will calculate the
theoretical quantities of substances involved in a chemical reaction through the study of
stoichiometry. You’ll analyze chemical reactions that involve aqueous solutions, acids
and bases, and gases. You’ll see how gases respond to changes in pressure, volume,
temperature, and quantity through the ideal gas law. You’ll also calculate changes in
temperature caused by physical and chemical processes and analyze reactions in terms
of bond energies. Finally, you will understand how atoms are changed by the unique
processes of radioactive decay, nuclear fusion, and nuclear fission.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
• Perform scientific calculations using dimensional analysis, and communicate
answers to the correct number of significant figures.
• Calculate the theoretical quantity of product made by a reaction or of reactant
required for a reaction.
• Analyze substances and determine their composition based on empirical data.
• Describe how gases respond to changes in pressure, volume, temperature, and
quantity, and relate these factors for any sample of a gas.
• Apply the ideal gas law.
• Describe aqueous solutions (those with water) both qualitatively and quantitatively.
• Identify acids and bases in aqueous solutions.
• Relate the theoretical and actual quantities of reactant and product in a chemical
reaction that involves gases or solutions.
• Calculate changes in temperature caused by physical and chemical processes.
• Analyze endothermic and exothermic reactions in terms of the bond energies of the
reactants and the products.
• Explain how atoms are changed by the processes of radioactive decay, nuclear
fission, and nuclear fusion.
