Department of

Basic Principles of Chemistry II


The aim of this course is to provide the students with knowledge in the following;

Develop an understanding the behavior of gases using the ideal gas model and the factors responsible for deviating from ideal behavior to non-ideal behavior of gases, develop an understanding of the basic concepts and terminology and use them in study of classical thermodynamics, develop the ability in applying the first and second laws of thermodynamics in various thermodynamic process, develop an understanding of the basics concepts and terminology used in reaction kinetics and the ability to use them in evaluating kinetic parameters using experimental data, develop and understanding experimental techniques used in reaction kinetics, develop an understanding of the chemistry of Galvanic cells, develop the ability in using electrode potentials and emf measurements in problem solving.
