Chemistry-Study and teaching; Voltammetry; Electrochemistry; Solution (Chemistry)
Experiment with the goal of gaining an understanding of anodic stripping voltammetry and an understanding of the factors involved in performing quantitative analytical determinations, through the determinations of amounts of copper.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Molecular spectroscopy; Thermodynamics; Gases
Experiment previously used in the course, meant to introduce the student to molecular spectroscopy and to the molecular parameters and thermodynamic properties which can be obtained by analyzing the vibration-rotation spectrum of gaseous hydrogen...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Stoichiometry; Chemical equilibrium
Introduction. Part II of the handout will apply the approach introduced in Part I to acid-base chemistry. We shall focus on two cases where the application of stoichiometry leads to great simplifications: strong acids which are essentially 100%...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Valence (Theoretical chemistry); Chemical bonds; Electrons; Molecular orbitals
In class, we have used the Valence Bond (VB) approach to understand chemical
bonding. At the qualitative level, VB is relatively easy to use and does not require a deep
knowledge of quantum mechanics and group theory. The electron-dot formalism of...
