Introduction to AP ChemistryGet the Chime Plug-In directly from MDL Labortories. If the Chime plug-in is working you should be seeing a rotating molecule of morphine below:
The AP Chemistry course is designed to be taken only after the successful completion of a first course in high school chemistry.
It is expected that a minimum of 290 minutes per week should be allocated for an AP chemistry course. Of the total allocated time, a minimum of 90 minutes per week, preferably in one session, should be spent engaged in laboratory work. It is assumed that the student will spend at least five hours a week in unsupervised individual study.
The following list summarizes types of problems either explicitly or implicity included in this course. Attention should be given to significant figures, precision od measured values, and the use of logrithmic and exponential relationships, critical analysis of the reasonableness of results is to be encouraged.
1. Percentage Composition
2. Empirical and molecular formulas from experimental data
3. Molar masses from gas density, freezing-point, and boiling-point measurements
4. Gas laws, including the Ideal Gas law, Dalton's law, and Graham's law
5. Stoichiometric relationships using the concept of the mole, titration calculations
6. Mole fractions, molar and molal solution
7. Faraday's laws of eletrolysis
8. Equilibrium constants and their applications, including their use for simultaneous equilibria
9. Standard electrode potentials and their use and the Nernst equation
10. Thermodynamic and thermochemical calculations
11. Kinetics Calculations
