Chemical Equilibria 1 – Safety in the Laboratory (EQCH1) University of Bordeaux
> UPON COMPLETION OF THIS COURSE, STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO: - Use the appropriate concepts to describe a chemical system(chemical change, reaction, the extent of reaction, stoichiometry,activity, reaction quotient) - Relate the spontaneous change and the Gibbs energy of a reaction - Determine and use equilibrium constants - Determine the heat released or absorbed in a chemical change - Work in the chemistry lab according to Good Laboratory Practice - Carry out a complexometric titration and express the concentrationwith its uncertainty) - Control if a pH-electrode is functional or not
- Basics of chemistry: molecular formula, amount of substance andmolar mass, symbolizing chemical reactions, balancing chemicalequations. - Basics of thermodynamics: temperature, energy of a system, energychange through work or heat, enthalpy, entropy. - Basics of metrology: mean value, standard experimental deviation,uncertainty, repeatability. - Basics of mechanics: kinetic energy.
- 2 written exams with exercises (2 x 1 hour), - Lab reports, 1 practical exam about the labs (2 hours.
