Chemistry B

Course Title: 
Chemisry B
Course Description: 

This comprehensive course gives students a solid basis to move on to future studies. The course provides an in-depth survey of all key areas, including atomic structure, chemical bonding and reactions, solutions, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, organic chemistry, and nuclear chemistry. The course includes direct online instruction, virtual laboratories, and related assessments, used with a problem-solving book.Materials: Chemistry Problems and SolutionsPrerequisites: Chemistry A AND have credit in Algebra IIA (student can be co-enrolled in Algebra IIA).

Chemistry BUnit 1 Lab: Gas LawsYou will design a lab using balloons to model how collision theory explains the behavior of gases and determine how a change in temperature affects the volume of a gas by calculating volume of the gas in the balloons. Unit 2 Lab: Factors Affecting Solution FormationYou will design a lab that will determine how particle size or temperature affects solution formation. You will alter two factors as you create solutions. You will also apply the concept of collision theory to understand the significance of your results. Unit 3 Lab: Titration: Testing Water QualityIn this virtual experiment, you will perform a procedure to determine the acidity of unknown samples of liquids. You will use the method of titration, a drop-by-drop addition of acid or base to a solution that contains an indicator. In this case, NaOH will be added. As you shall see, this method, when conducted carefully, can be used to accurately determine the concentration of a solution. Unit 4 Lab: Heat TransferIn this virtual experiment, you will address changes in thermal energy in phase changes and calculate Enthalpy of Fusion by using a device called a calorimeter and the principles of thermochemistry, the chemistry of heat during chemical reactions. You will also compare your results to those that are chemical standards. You will observe a closed system in which heat transfer takes place. You will calculate the heat released in a phase change. Unit 5 Lab: Reaction-Rate FactorsDesign an experiment that tests factors such as temperature, surface area, pressure, and concentration can affect the rates of a reaction using effervescent tablets or vinegar and baking soda. Unit 6 Lab: ElectroplatingIn this virtual experiement you will conduct an electroplating experiment and interpret your results in the context of electrochemical reactions and galvanic or electrolytic cells. You will interpret the chemistry of an electrolytic cell in the electroplating process, Interpret the chemistry of the electroplating process, Conduct an experiment on electroplating.
