Content and learning outcomes
The course focuses on a quantitative analysis of acid / base, gas, distribution, solubility, coordination and redox equilibria. The course aims to give a general understanding of how equilibria affect the composition of a system. As examples natural cycles and industrial processes will be discussed. How the equilibrium concept can be practically utilized to influence a reaction will be exemplified practically in inorganic labs.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Describe a chemical system at equilibrium using relevant equations and solve the system of euqations to determine the properties of the chemical system.
- Plan and perform wet chemical work in accordance with standard procedures for safe handling of chemicals and apply the equilibrium concept.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB1 - Laboratory exercises, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Written exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
