Course Website : http://angel.msu.edu (log in with your MSU Net ID and you will see the link for LB 172 Spring 09) Text : Chemistry , by Tro, 1 st edition. also required : a calculator that can handle scientific notation and exponents. Objectives : --understanding the properties of gases, liquids, and technologically relevant solids --discerning the difference in physical properties between pure liquids and solutions, and using these properties in chemical analysis --gaining familiarity with basic molecular orbital theory to describe bonding and properties in simple molecules and solids --probing the factors that affect the rate of chemical reactions, and how these factors allow us to examine the underlying mechanism by which a reaction occurs --understanding chemical equilibrium and its relationship to kinetics and thermodynamics --utilizing chemical equilibrium concepts for more in-depth analysis of acid-base chemistry, buffer solutions, and solubility --gaining a basic working familiarity with electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry. --acquiring a deeper grasp of thermodynamics including entropy and free energy --grasping the deep relevance of chemistry to modern technological issues Grading Policy : Points will be assigned according to the following scheme: Problem Sets 13 @ 15 pts 195 pts Group Term Project 1 @ 100 100 pts Participation 50 pts Quizzes 6 @ 15 pts 90 pts Prelim. Exams 3 @ 100 pts 300 pts Final Exam 1 @ 200 pts 200 pts TOTAL 935 pts Grading scale : At the end of the course, the 935 pt scale will be translated to grades as follows: 90% or above – 4.0 85% to 90% – 3.5 80% to 85% – 3.0 75% to 80% – 2.5
