Upon course completion, the student will be able to:1. Distinguish between elements, polyatomic ions, compounds, and mixtures.2. Balance chemical equations and perform stoichiometric calculations for compounds, given either the name or the chemical formula of the compound.3. Balance chemical reactions "by inspection". Perform stoichiometric calculations for balanced chemical reactions, to include identification of "limiting reagent", calculation of "theoretical yield", and calculation of "percent yield".4. Calculate molecular weights and to do stoichiometric calculations using molecular weights.5. Define oxidation and reduction. Balance a "re-dox" reaction by the Half-Cell method, or anequivalent other method.6. Demonstrate factual knowledge of the Quantum Mechanical theory of atomic structure, toinclude: quantum numbers, atomic orbitals, and electron configuration.7. Draw an appropriate Lewis structure for a molecule or polyatomic ion obeying the OctetRule, and be able to give the shape from the Lewis structure.8. Demonstrate factual knowledge of crystal structure, and of intermolecular attractions andtheir effects on matter.9. Recite concepts related to solutions, especially those factors that determine the solubility of one substance in another substance.10. Perform calculations using the ideal gas law and other gas laws for ideal gases and gas mixtures.11. Compute enthalpy changes for chemical reactions, using values from a standardthermodynamic table.12. Demonstrate factual knowledge of polymerization reactions, and of the chemical bonding found in different types of polymer materials. Describe the chemical components of materials such as fiberglass and carbon composites.13. Define reaction rate, and describe the factors that determine or control reaction rate.14. Demonstrate qualitative understanding of intermolecular forces of attraction and the effects they have on the properties of matter in bulk.15. Demonstrate factual knowledge of concepts relating to solutions, especially those factors that affect the solubility of one substance in another substance.
