Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course focuses on equilibrium calculations of acid / base, gas, solubility, complex and redox reactions and practical wet chemical laboratory work in inorganic reaction theory. The course aims to give a general understanding of how the driving forces in nature, i.e. how the strive towards equilibrium, give rise to chemical reactions and how we can practically utilize this concept to influence a reaction.

Intended learning outcomes *

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  1. Calculate different types of chemical equilibrium equations with appropriate approximations and predict how the equilibrium concept can be utilized to influence a process (TEN1).
  2. Independently plan and perform wet chemical work in accordance with standard procedures for safe handling of chemicals and apply the equilibrium concept for analysis and separation (LAB1).
  3. Identify natural forms of our most common elements in soil, water and air, and based on the principles of equilibrium describe flows and circles in nature (TEN1).
