 The General Chemistry course includes:

  1. Lectures, 30 hours,
  2. Laboratory exercises, 30 hours.

Test ends the General Chemistry course.

Lectures embraces following topics:

Fundamental chemical definitions and laws, chemical formulas and nomenclature of inorganic compounds. Chemical reactions (types, energy relationships), atoms (subatomic particles, atomic numbers, isotopes). Bohr theory, quantum – mechanical theory, quantum number, atomic orbital, electron configuration. Periodic table and properties of elements, chemical bonding, physical properties of gases, liquids and solids states. Properties of solutions, electrolytes, base of chemical equilibrium, base of chemical kinetics. Electrochemistry, corrosion of metals and alloys. Base of inorganic and organic chemistry. Polymers.
