Chemistry B

Course Description:

The second semester of chemistry will cover a whole set of new topics, using the skills mastered in the first semester. The major units will be Stoichiometry, nuclear reactions, reaction rates, acids, bases and salts and thermochemistry. Again, a working knowledge of algebra and geometry will aid the student at being successful in Chemistry!
