12. Structure and Properties of Atoms (text Ch 6)
A. Wave-Particle Duality of Light
Light travels as an electromagnetic wave with a wavelength (). The amplitude is the intensity (brightness) The number of cycles that pass a given point per u
14. Shapes of Molecules (text Ch 5 and 7)
A. Molecular Geometry
Lewis structures provide us with the number and types of bonds around a central atom, as well as any NB electron pairs. They do not tell us the 3-D structure of the molecule.
16. Organic Chemistry (tutorial notes and text Ch 22)
In Chem 020, we briefly survey some of the common organic reactions. Those taking Chem 213 or Chem 273 will study these reactions in detail, such as how they occur, not simply what happens.
15. Chemical Kinetics (text Ch 11)
Chemical kinetics is the study of how quickly chemical reactions proceed and the factors that affect the rate. The rate of a chemical reaction depends on not only the nature of the reactants
13. Bonding (text Ch 13)
There are two types of chemical bonds: ionic and covalent. However, some bonds are frequently "in between."
A. Ionic Bonds
In an ionic bond, at least one electron is completely transferred from one atom to another.
