General Chemistry

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The subject gives a deeper understanding for general chemistry, especially the basic areas like stokeometry, acid and bases, thermochemistry, electrochemistry, reaction rates and implementation in chemical thermodynamics (spontaneity).

Learning outcome

After ended course the student is able to:
- Do simple laboratory analyses
- General skills on laboratory
- write scientific reports
- know principles for solutions, solvent properties and reactions in water
- know principles in chemical thermodynamics
- know principles in electrochemistry
- know principles in chemical kinetics
After ended course the student will have achieved competence to proceed on courses with chemistry requirements.

Contents

The subject gives a deeper understanding for general chemistry, especially the basic areas like stokeometry, acid and bases, thermochemistry, electrochemistry, reaction rates and implementation in chemical thermodynamics (spontaneity). The lectures include introduction to the laboratory exercises. The subject includes laboratory exercises, 4 hours in 8 weeks. It will be given credits for laboratory reports, journal writing and obligatory exercise (analysis of unknown sample). The laboratory part counts 25% and the theory part counts 75% of the final evaluation.

Required prerequisite knowledge

None.

Recommended previous knowledge

KJE100 Environmental Chemistry and HES

Exam

Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written exam and laboratory exercise1/14 hoursA - FSpecified printed and hand-written means are allowed. Definite, basic calculator allowed.
Course teacher sets final mark. Written exam counts 75% and laboratory exercise 25%. The sum of these marks gives the final mark for the subject. In order to achieve a passed mark neither the lab and nor the theory must fail.
To get a pass mark in general chemistry one should get a pass mark both in laboratory evaluation and in theoretical exams. Pass mark in the lab evaluation is given on the basis of the student's laboratory portfolio that includes the following: The laboratory part counts 25% of the final marks.
The grade on the laboratory exercises is bases on map evaluation which includes: 7 reports and analysis of unknown sample. The unknown sample counts as one report. Each part of these evaluations has to be passed.
If the the laboratory excersizes is evaluated to a non-passing grade, the students can redo these in the next ordinary term for the subject.

Coursework requirements

Obligatory participation in all laboratory exercises: The laboratory exercises are a central part of this subject and are obligatory in order to achieve the goals for the course. The student has weekly 4 hours obligatory lab exercises for 8 weeks.

Open to

Because of limited laboratory capacity the course will, from autumn 2008, only be available for students admitted to a study program where the course is mandatory or as a recommended elective.

This according to § 3-7, point 5, within rules for Universities and University Colleges.

Students that do not have the course in their original study plan but wish to take this course have to apply to the Head of Department responsible for this course. Applications should be submitted following the guidelines for applications for admission to individual courses.

Course assessment

Evaluation through schems or oral communication according to the rules.

Literature

Selected chapters from "Chemistry", Brown, LeMay, Bursten og Murphy , 11 utgave , Pearson, 2009.
Curriculum is based, but on not limited to the book, in addition to all handouts, information given in lectures or on Canvas.
