Chemical equilibria are fundamental in the understanding of biological and
environmental processes and in chemical analysis. This course emphasizes quantitative
and graphical interpretation of acid-base, solubility, distribution, complex
ion, and redox equilibria in aqueous solution and soils. Laboratory work stresses
application of gravimetric, volumetric, spectrophotometric, and potentiometric
techniques. Pre-professional preparation requiring one term of quantitative
analysis is satisfied by Chemistry 220. Three class periods and one laboratory
period per week. Offered each spring.
Prerequisite: Chemistry 117 or facility with mole calculations.
Water Sampling Sites
Draw logarithmic concentration, distribution, and titration plots for acid/base, solubility, metal/ligand and redox equilibria, as well as cyclic voltammograms and Pourbaix diagrams.

For Windows, the Windows Universal Runtime is required which is installed by Windows Update. If you get a message about a missing dll, run Windows Update.
Since the Mac OSX applications are not signed, you will need to control-click the app icon and choose Open from the context menu the first time you run it.
