This unit is designed to give students a thorough and broad understanding to modern chemistry, providing a basis for either continued work in chemistry or for using chemistry in other disciplines. It involves chemical concepts like gas laws, thermo-chemistry, atomic structure, chemical bonding leading to shapes of molecules, behaviour of solids, liquids and solutions, chemical kinetics and chemical equilibrium involved in acids, bases and solubility.
External students must attend a 3 day intensive block in Darwin to complete the laboratory sessions.
