|CLASS CODE:||CHEM 220||CREDITS: 4|
|DIVISION:||PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING|
|GENERAL EDUCATION:||This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.|
|DESCRIPTION:||A one-semester course that stresses quantitative analytical techniques in the laboratory, an introduction to instrumental analysis, and the chemical principles on which they are based. This course includes a lecture and laboratory experience.|
|CONTENT AND TOPICS:||Lecture topics include error analysis and the statistical treatment of experimental data; sampling and analysis techniques; chemical equilibrium topics applied to chemical analysis; and selected topics in instrumental analysis, including electrochemistry, spectrophotometry, and chromatography. The laboratory includes a focus on accuracy and precision in measurement; practice in wet chemistry techniques such as titration and gravimetric analysis; and exposure to selected instrumental methods of analysis.|
|GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:||Recognize the chemical principles on which analytical measurement techniques are based.
Know the basic design and operation of analytical instrumentation.
Apply statistical techniques to critically evaluate experimental data.
Demonstrate the ability to perform wet chemical analyses with good accuracy and precision.
Use selected analytical instruments properly.
Keep accurate and complete records of laboratory work in a bound notebook.
|REQUIREMENTS:||Varies depending on the instructor. With two hours of lecture and six hours of laboratory per week, the grade will be based primarily on performance in the laboratory. Attendance is required.|
|PREREQUISITES:||Completion of Chem 106 with at least a C-.|
|EFFECTIVE DATE:||August 2000|
