A study of intermolecular forces between molecules, and their affect on the properties of solids, liquids and gases, and on phase changes. The interplay of energetics and chemical kinetics on equilibria, including gas phase, acid-base, redox, and solubility equilibria. Second half of a two semester sequence for students interested in a chemistry or closely related career. This course is open to 17CHEMBS, 17CHEMBA, 14EFY-14CHEI, 11BIOCHBS, 11LSFY-11BCHI, and 17MARSCBS-17MARSCCHM majors and to students with departmental approval. Students cannot receive credit for both CH 201 and CH 203.

The course is primarily designed for chemistry majors, but the intent has been to allow chemical engineering majors and biochemistry majors, along with students from other closely related disciplines, to participate.  With the advent of the Life Science First Year program, incoming students intending to major in Biochemistry are now designated 11LSFY-11BCHI.  This revision adds this designation to the list of majors for which the course is open in the catalog description and in the Requisites and Scheduling section of the GEP information.

No new resources arc required for this course. The department currently offers smaller sections of CH 201 (see part B above) into which chemistry majors are advised to enroll. Addition ofCH 203 would be concomitant with the elimination of that special section ofCH 201.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:


1. Identify the bonding forces present in a material, and predict how those forces affect the physical properties of the material.


2. Interpret phase diagrams and relate the features to physical processes in materials.


3. Describe the properties of gases using kinetic molecular theory and the ideal gas law.


4. Calculate molarity, molality, mole fraction and mass fraction of a solution, and convert between these quantities.


5. Quantitatively predict vapor pressure, melting point, boiling point and osmotic pressure of solutions and use these data to determine molar massess of solutes.


6. Calculate E, H, S, and G for a reaction using experimental data and/or tabulated values.


7.  Write expressions for K and Q, and determine their values from experimental data.


8.  Calculate K from thermodynamic data, and vice versa, at different temperatures.


9. Calculate the pH of acids, bases, and mixtures, including buffer solutions, using Ka values

Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Exam100 pointsExam #1

Thursday January 31, in problem session.

Exams are administered in problem session.

The final exam will be in part on the last couple weeks of the semester, and in part based on the material from the first four exams.

If the NC State Adverse Weather Policy is in effect on an exam day, the exam will be postponed until the next class meeting, and a regular class will be held in its place, weather permitting.

There will be no make up exams. If an exam is missed for a documented legitimate excuse, the average score on the other exams, including the final exam, will replace the missing grade.

Missing either two exams or the final without a documented, legitimate excuse will result in an automatic failure of the course.

Missing either two exams or the final with a documented, legitimate excuse can result in the grade of IN (see "Policies on Incomplete Grades" below)

Final Exam200 pointsMonday May 6, 8:00am-11:00am in Fox 104
Quizzes 60 pointsGiven in problem session and/or class; 50 points each

There will be six quizzes as an incentive to keep students abreast of the coursework. These will be a combination of announced quizzes, given in class. Each quiz will be 10 points.
Homework40 pointsFour graded problem sets worth 10 points each will be given, to be turned in on specific dates at problem session.

As we cover material, problems at the end of the chapter that correspond to the material being covered in class will be suggested. It is recommended that students work about half of them while we are covering the material and the second half as a tool to study for the exam. As students have questions, they are encouraged to bring them to class or office hours. But otherwise this larger list of homework problems is not graded.
