# Chemical Calculations

7.5 ECTS credits

The course is divided into a theoretical and a laboratory part. Learning outcome 9 only relates to the laboratory part while the others can be treated in both parts.

Learning outcome 1: numerical values, significant figures, converting units, unit analysis

Learning outcome 2: the perfect gas equation, pressure, volume, temperature, amount of substance, the gas constant

Learning outcome 3: empirical formula, molecular formula

Learning outcome 4: chemical reactions in general, redox reactions in particular, molecular reaction equation, ionic reaction equation, net ionic reaction equation, limiting reagents, yield in chemical reactions, simple electrolysis problems, concentration, amount of substance, mass, molar mass

Learning outcome 5: dynamic equilibrium, activity, activities at equilibrium, concentrations at equilibrium, the acid constant (Ka), the base constant (Kb), conjugated acid-base pair, solubility product (Ksp), solubility, complex constant, equilibrium constant (concentration, Kc and pressure, Kp), reaction quotient, Le Châtelier's principle, common reactant, the autoionization of water, pKa, pKb, pKw

Learning outcome 6: pH, pOH, pH indicators, pH calculations, buffert solutions, buffert equation (Henderson-Hasselbalch), preparation of buffert solutions

Learning outcome 7: concentration, amount of substance, mass, molar mass, calculate on the dilution of solutions, redox titration, acid-base titration

Learning outcome 8: kinetics, the rate of a reaction, rate constant, half-life, the Arrhenius equation, activation energy

Learning outcome 9: practical laboratory work based on theory treated. Results from the laboratory work are reported according to instructions within a given time limit.

Master of Science Engineering students also undergo a safety test before doing laboratory work.
