Learning objectives
The course aims to provide the fundamental principles of General Chemistry which constitute the essential cultural background for understanding the teachings for which General Chemistry is preparatory. The General Chemistry course will also provide the student with the main calculation methods to solve stoichiometry problems.
Expected learning outcomes
- Knowledge of theoretical principles and comprehension of the basic structure of atoms and molecules, chemical reactions and thermodynamics and kinetics bases of reactions.
- Understanding and solving stoichiometry problems.
