Learning outcomes This Course aims to give an introduction to the study of general chemistry. It is intended that the student perceives, develop and apply fundamental knowledge in general chemistry. Use the Periodic Table as a tool in understanding the chemistry of the elements.
Understanding the theories of chemical bonding and determine the geometry of the molecules. Relate the physical properties of substances with intermolecular forces.
Solve problems with gas, with emphasis on the use of the ideal gas law and Dalton's law.
Classify solids according to the chemical bond and its crystal structure.
Use the crystal field theory to predict the structure and properties of transition metal complexes.
Understand the laws of thermodynamics and its application in chemistry .
