Spring 2009General Chemistry II - NSC505
The central focus of general chemistry is the composition of matter and transformations of matter. In the second half of this course we will examine in detail intermolecular forces, reaction kinetics, acid-base equilibria, and electrochemistry. We will also explore some aspects of organic chemistry and thermodynamics. Environmental chemistry will continue to be a secondary theme of the course as we relate all of these topics to the effects of human activity on our environment.
