Type of course
After this course, the student:
-considers relations between physical and chemical properties of elements and chemical compounds, chemical composition and structure of the compound, position of the element in the periodic table and electronic structure of atoms and molecules; considers ionic equilibria and reactions in aqueous solutions of electrolytes as well as relations between solution composition and properties of solutions (e.g. salt solubility, concentration of various ions, solution pH);
- explains the origin of physical and chemical properties as well as structure of elements and compounds, chemical fundamentals of important processes observed in common life;
- anticipates properties of chemical compounds, basing on their composition,
- uses the knowledge in other courses related to chemistry.
Written examination, concerning the whole course contents (lecture and laboratory).
