5:Pass with Distinction, 4:Pass with Credit, 3:Pass, U:Fail The requirements for attaining different grades are described in the course assessment criteria which are contained in a supplement to the course syllabus. Current information on assessment criteria shall be made available at the start of the course.
Prior knowledgeKnowledge corresponding to general eligibility including Ma D, Fy B, Ke A
ObjectivesThe objective of the course is to provide student with insight into the energy principles behind chemical reactions in the industrial and in natural systems and background necessary for treating the chemical equilibria in those systems.
After completion of the course the student should
- know the names, chemical formulae and properties of the most important inorganic compounds present in nature (acids, bases and salts) and the reactions they take part of
- be able to identify most common chemical reactions constituting the background of the processes within the area of energy production and their environmental effects, and be also able to give a quantitative descriptions of the energy transformations in the systems, where these processes occur
- be able to give quantitative estimations of the concentration changes in most common chemical processes on the basis of the data on changes in the related energy functions
- be able to carry out chemical experiments according to provided techniques and give written account for the results obtained
- be able to carry out quantitative determinations of concentrations using electrical and optical instruments and provide statistic evaluation of the results obtained
ContentThe course involves following topics:
Part 1. Chemical energetics 5 points. Stoichiometry, chemical elements and the Periodic System, chemical bonding, nuclear reactions, chemical thermodynamics and chemical kinetics.
Part 2. Chemical equilibria (chemical energy sources) 5 points. Description and practical application of such chemical equilibria as protolysis, solubility, complex formation, redox reactions, related equilibria, ion exchange. Principle techniques of chemical analysis such as titrimetry and spectrophotometry. The course gives also acquaintance with the principles of statistic evaluation and presentation of the results of quantitative measurements.
Formats and requirements for examinationWritten term exams and final exams, exercises/tasks, and written reports on the laboratory work.
Passed exams, passed laboratory reports and passed exercises/tasks as well as active participation in all compulsory aspects.
- If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
- If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
- If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
- For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
- The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
- If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
