Please consult the unabridged version on the CHEM 215 iLearn site or at for detailed information. Any changes to the course syllabus will be posted on the CHEM 215 iLearn site. Instructor Kent Lau, Ph.D.(City U of Hong Kong) Office SCI 201A Contact Information (Please include “CHEM 215” in the subject line.) Office Hours M-F 8:30–9:00 Course Description and Learning Objectives The focus of CHEM 215 is on the quantitative applications of general chemistry concepts. Students re-examine, in a quantitative fashion, fundamentally important chemistry concepts that were introduced in CHEM 115, learn new chemistry concepts, and apply the four themes developed in CHEM 115 (properties of atoms, interactions of atoms, reaction chemistry and stoichiometry, and chemical dynamics) to quantitative chemistry problems. The course explores the following topics: Electromagnetic radiation, atomic spectra, quantum-mechanical model of the atom; coordination chemistry and Lewis acid-base theory; electrochemistry; chemical kinetics; chemical equilibrium, especially of aqueous solutions; Brønsted-Lowry acid-base chemistry and equilibrium; chemical dynamics, including the thermodynamics of phase changes; properties of solids, liquids, and gases, including vapor
