PURDUE UNIVERSITY CHEMISTRY 11200 STUDY GUIDE and SAMPLE EXAMINATION This Study Guide describes topics to be mastered prior to attempting the examination to establish credit in Purdue's Chemistry 11200. The material can be studied from many of the textbooks on the market. A list of several of these is given below. SUBJECT MATTER: A Brief Outline The subject matter of any General Chemistry course is varied. Chemistry 11200 deals with gases and their properties, solids and their properties, solutions, reaction rates and chemical equilibrium, oxidation reduction reactions, nuclear chemistry, organic chemistry with an emphasis on nomenclature and functional groups, and biochemistry. The course is taken primarily by students in the College of Agriculture and the College of Health and Human Sciences and is designed to meet their needs. It is also taken by smaller numbers of students in the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Technology. A knowledge of high-school chemistry is presumed and the course goes far beyond the high school level. A weekly three-hour laboratory is an integral part of the course and includes measurement techniques, the use of the analytical balance, titration techniques and experiments with various elements and compounds. The topics presented in the outline should be studied prior to attempting the sample examination included with this study guide. These topics are broken down under several headings according to those found in the texts currently in use at Purdue. In preparing for the examination it is important to work many problems. However, the problems should not only be used to test your recall of relations like PV = nRT or M = moles/Liter, but also should be used to measure your understanding of the concepts and principles involved. At the end of this Study Guide you will find a sample examination over this material. Allow one hour for the exam. Naturally, it does not cover every point. No examination extending over a reasonable time period can do that. SPECIAL NOTE: Words of advice concerning the taking of the actual examination for credit are warranted. No one does well on an examination when he or she is excessively fatigued. Therefore, you are urged to provide yourself an adequate rest period before taking the actual examination. If your trip to the campus necessitates travel into the late hours of the night or an extremely early departure from your home, you may be well advised to allow for a one night's rest in the Lafayette area before taking the examination. Many students who are unsuccessful with the examination tell us that failing to take (Revised June, 2010)

2 the above precautions contributed strongly to this result. Most such students find that their first year was somewhat less rewarding than it might have been because of the time spent retracing materials studied in high school. Please consult your advanced credit schedule for the actual time and place of the examination. It is usually given both morning and afternoon.
