UW CHEM 152 Winter 2012 Page 2 of 10 LEARNING OBJECTIVES The central ideas presented in this course are : Thermodynamics . We will begin the course by exploring the concepts of energy, enthalpy, entropy, and the Gibbs energy. The ultimate goal of this section of the course is to develop the tools that allow one to predict if a chemical reaction will be spontaneous. Electrochemistry . We will revisit “redox” chemistry previously described in CHEM 142, and use this reaction class as an opportunity to explore the thermodynamic concepts described above. Quantum Mechanics and Atomic Theory . In this portion of the course you will be introduced to the modern description of the hydrogen atom as derived from quantum mechanical principles. This description will be extended to other atoms, and eventually used to construct the periodic table of the elements. Bonding . Chemical bonds are “where the action is” in Chemistry. We will develop a description of chemical bonds (covalent, polar covalent, and ionic) and explore some simple models capable of predicting bonding patterns (Lewis dot structures) and molecular shapes (VSEPR).
