Overview of Chemistry IIA
This course has a prerequisite of Chemisty IA or Intensive Science and Algebra IA. Topics are Basic Atomic Structure, Chemical Nomenclature, Compositonal Stoichiometry, and Chemical Reactions.
Unit 1 - Atomic Structure
What is the atom? In this unit, we go into the history of atomic theory and discuss all aspects of the atom. Isotopes, ions, molecules are first introduced here and become a part of everything we do from here on.
Unit 2 - Nomenclature
One thing you'll see on the ingredient labels of things you buy at the store are a number of hard to say names.
Unit - 3 Compositional Stoichiometry
So, why the picture of the monster? Well, many of us have never seen one, but that is a mole. They live in the ground and destroy lawns. For whatever reason, chemists long ago decided to use the name of this furry pests as the name for a concept first discovered by Amadeo Avogadro.
Unit 4 - Chemical Reactions
Chemical reactions take place all around us every day. In our bodies, in our kitchens, in gardens, etc.. We will be going into the basics of this most important area of chemistry.
