Learning Outcomes
1Biochemistry Undergraduate students at the end of these courses; 1) Understanding chemical kinetics, will be able to explain how reactions occur at the molecular level. 2) Will be able to comprehend that the degree of progress of a chemical reaction is defined depending on a quantity. 3) Will be able to explain acid-base behavior, strong and weak acid-base issues. 4) Will be able to explain buffer solutions and acid-base titrations. 5) Will be able to apply the concept of equilibrium in determining the amount of dissolution and precipitation of poorly soluble ionic compounds. 6) Will be able to explain the concepts of voluntary and involuntary events, entropy and entropy changes in chemical reactions, free energy. 7) Will be able to explain oxidation-reduction reactions, batteries and corrosion. 8) Will be able to remember radioactivity and nuclear chemistry information related to changes in atomic nucleus.
