CHEM 106 – General Chemistry II

CHEM 106 - General Chemistry II

Session 2: July 5 – August 10

Course Description

This course is the second semester of General Chemistry and will serve as a continuation of the introduction to fundamental chemical principles begun in CHEM 105.

Topics to be covered this semester include Chemical Bonding, Structure and Geometry of Molecules, Solids, Solutions, Chemical Kinetics, Chemical Equilibrium, Acid-Base Chemistry, Chemical Thermodynamics, and Electrochemistry. Many of these topics are challenging, and the mathematical component of CHEM 106 is significantly greater than that of CHEM 105.

Course Materials

Textbook: Chemistry: The Central Science
Brown, LeMay, and Bursten, 10th edition, Prentice Hall Pub., 2006.

Calculator: A scientific calculator is required. An inexpensive scientific calculator with scientific notation, square root, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions can be purchased for less than $20, and will be sufficient for the needs of this course.
