Welcome to General Chemistry II (CHEM 221)

CHEM 221 is the second course and laboratory in a two-semester sequence covering the fundamental concepts of chemistry designed for science majors. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to

  1. Understand the scientific method and use it to answer questions of academic scientific interest and real-world concern.
  2. Understand the metric system of measurement and use it to solve problems accurately and precisely.
  3. Clearly communicate orally and in writing using the language and symbology of chemistry and computational mathematics at an appropriate level of sophistication.
  4. Construct, interpret and analyze charts, graphs and tables.
  5. Know the physical principles which determine chemical structure, properties, reactivity and energetics.
  6. Know standard laboratory policies, procedures and safety practices, and follow them
