This course examines why and how chemical reactions take place. Core topics include safety in a laboratory environment, chemical equilibrium (qualitative and quantitative aspects, equilibrium in acid-base systems, additional aspects of aqueous equilibria) and electrochemistry. This course provides an insight into the role of chemistry in industry and its role in the explanation of natural phenomena encountered in everyday life. Stoichiometry is reviewed.
Both Chemistry 1083 and Chemistry 1093 are required for covering the chemistry topics contained in high school courses up to and including the Grade 12 level.
Chemistry 1083 and Chemistry 1093 may be taken at the same time or in any order.
Course code: CHEM 1093
Length: 60 hours
Prerequisites• Chemistry 11 or equivalent
• English 10 or equivalent (English 11 is strongly recommended)
