Learning outcomes Known the concept of chemical equilibrium and the factors that it depends. Perform calculations involving
the equilibrium constant. Identify buffers in equilibrium systems and explain their function. Perform
calculations involving the acid and basic constants. Identify oxidation-reduction processes. Recognize an
electrochemical cell, in terms of its components and their functions. Perform calculations involving
concepts of redox balance by applying Nernst equation. Determine the solubility of a compound in
aqueous solution and correlate the solubility with the solubility product. Perform calculations involving
solubility product. Understand and apply the rules of IUPAC nomenclature for organic compounds.
Classify and identify the most common organic functional groups. Predicting the global three-dimensional
structure of organic molecules relatively simple by applying the basic principles of bonding, hybridization
and analysis of conformation.
