By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Explain the structure and basic properties of atoms
  • Describe the various types of chemical bonds
  • Use chemical quantities to make stoechiometric calculations
  • Predict quantitatively energy exchanges associated to physical and chemical transformations
  • Apply the principles of thermodynamics to solve equilibrium problems
  • Compute the pH value of an aqueous solution by applying adequate approximations
  • Work out / Determine the spontaneous direction, the energetics, and the equilibrium of a redox reaction
  • Apply integrated rate laws and determine the kinetics of a reaction at different temperatures
