Hours & Credits
This course builds on an introductory knowledge of chemistry (equivalent to two years of high school chemistry, such as Year 11 and 12 chemistry) to explore the engineering aspects of chemistry. The course builds from the quantum mechanical structure of atoms and leads to an understanding of the periodic trends in the properties of the elements. This knowledge is applied to understanding chemical bonding and intermolecular forces which together are responsible for determining the properties of materials. General principles of chemical equilibrium are developed and applied to chemical reactions involving acids and bases. The practical aspects of the flow of material and energy within a process are extended into applications of the laws of thermodynamics to chemical processes and ultimately linked to chemical equilibrium. The course concludes with an overview of chemical reactions involving electron transfer, including their applications in biology, corrosion and energy storage for portable electronic devices.
Note: Assumed knowledge equivalent to year 12 chemistry or CHEM1001.
