Students will explore stoichiometric relationships in solution and gas systems which are the basis of quantifying results of chemical reactions. Understanding chemical reactivity leads directly into discussion of equilibrium and thermodynamics, two of the most important ideas in chemistry. Equilibrium, especially acid/base applications, explores the extent of reactions while thermodynamics helps us understand if a reaction will happen. Taking CHE2211, Chemistry 1 and CHE4212 ,Chemistry 2 provides a good background for students interested in environmental applications.
Corequisite: Students must also register for the lab, CHE4212L.01.
