Chemistry 1B continues on from Chemistry 1A and provides further studies in fundamental chemical principles to give students a solid chemical foundation for further studies in chemistry and other sciences. Content is delivered via the VU Block Model including online activities and content, instructor-led class discussions and theory put into practice with complementary laboratory exercises. Study topics comprise: matter including organic, biological, coordination, radioactive and acidic and basic compounds; reactions including energy, rates and equilibrium; including titrimetric, pH and light absorption. For students interested in teaching chemistry taking the four unit sequence Chemistry 1A, Chemistry 1B, Analytical Methods 1 and Organic Synthesis adequately prepares students to deliver units 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the VCE chemistry curriculum.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
