Module Description:The aim of this module is to develop the student’s knowledge of the basic principles of chemistry for scientific analysis. This module aims to provide the student with knowledge and understanding of - the different types of matter by state and chemical type;compound naming, formulae and type of bonding involved; balancing equations for simple reactions and classification of reactions;fundamental calculations for quantitative chemical analysis; the impact of energy, heat and stress on chemical reactions.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Assign the number of atomic species of each type and have a detailed knowledge of the structure of an atom, including electron configurations
LO2 Name and draw common chemical compounds and predict the different types of bonds in simple molecules.
LO3 Balance equations for simple reactions and use of the periodic table to predict an element's physical and chemical properties.
LO4 Perform fundamental chemical analysis calculations.
LO5 Understand acid/base chemistry and related calculations of acid strength
LO6 Measure the heat change involved in a reaction and predict the equilibrium position of a reaction.
