Apologia's award-winning Christ-centered college-prep chemistry course---now better than ever! Featuring more in-depth discussion of concepts and new biographical sketches of Christian scientists, this rigorous curriculum requires mathematical proficiency at the algebra level. Topics include thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, and atomic structure.
We recommend that students taking this course be proficient at an algebra math level. Topics include significant figures, units, classification, the mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, Lewis structures, molecular geometry, gas laws, and equilibrium.
This revised edition offers more in-depth discussions and explanations of concepts, as well as biographical sketches of Christian scientists who’ve made a difference in the field while giving the glory to God. Experiments include measuring specific heat, discovering the electrical conductivity of compounds dissolved in water, measuring the width of a molecule, exploring freezing point depression, using the ideal gas equation, recognizing the effects of catalysts, and much more. While the lab experiments in this course are designed for the home, some of them are more easily performed using specialized equipment available from Apologia.
