DISCIPLINE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS
INQUIRY AND ANALYSIS - Creativity and Innovation
INQUIRY AND ANALYSIS - Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
INQUIRY AND ANALYSIS - Research and Evidence-Based Inquiry

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Demonstrate an understanding of the stoichiometric relationships that determine the quantitative behaviour of chemical systems by calculating compositions of chemical systems.
02. Recognise functional groups on organic molecules by identifying structural features in organic molecules and identify these as acidic, basic or neutral.
03. Apply the concepts of chemical equilibrium to chemical systems and calculate the chemical composition of systems at equilibrium.
04. Apply the principles of the first law of thermodynamics to chemical systems to calculate the energy changes and transformations that occur during chemical processes. Apply the concepts of entropy and free energy to predict the spontaneous nature of a chemical process.
05. Apply knowledge of the parameters important in chemical kinetics to calculate rates of reaction.
06. Demonstrate competence in the use of volumetric glassware by determining the concentrations of 'unknown' solutions.
07. Present written reports that summarise experimental results and demonstrate a capacity to critically analyse measured data.
08. Students will have become aware of the occupational health and safety requirements in laboratories, particularly in the safe-handling of chemicals.
