CHM135H Chemistry: Physical Principles (formerly CHM139H)

TitleCHM135H Chemistry: Physical Principles (formerly CHM139H)
Schedule3 lectures
3 (A) labs
1 tutorials
Notes: Offered in Fall and Winter. CHM135H may not be taken with CHM136H in the same session.
TopicsThis course is recommended for students in the life and health science programs. The course opens with an introduction to atomic theory; fundamental concepts of spectroscopy and chemical bonding are also introduced. After a brief review of reaction stoichiometries, the structure of matter - gases, liquids, solids and beyond - will be discussed. The solution state is then presented with an emphasis on properties of solutions including chemical equilibria in solution, particularly those of acids and bases. The course concludes with an introduction to the kinetics and the thermodynamics of reactions of both chemical and biochemical interest.
