Practical Vs Theory
Gain an understanding of underlying chemical concepts through practical techniques and calculations that develop your analysis and practical scientific skills. Chemistry attempts to answer the big question: What is everything made from? Not only does Chemistry help us to make sense of the world around us, but Chemistry also touches upon the main social, ethical and cultural issues affecting our lives today. From archaeology to other planets’ atmospheres, and the effect of drugs to the colour of precious stones, Chemistry helps us to understand and enables us to make life better and more interesting. From a knowledge of chemistry, we can prevent and cure disease, develop new materials and explore space — Chemistry is all around us. You will study:
- Atomic Structure
- Energetics and Kinetics
- Chemical equilibria
- Alkanes and halogenalkanes
- Organic analysis
- Electrode potentials and Electrochemical cells
- Biochemistry and Spectroscopy
This course is 100% exam based and there are 12 assessed practicals.
