Instruction: It is your responsibility to be aware of all announcements that may be made in class
during this semester. If warranted by circumstances, the instructor may modify course policies
during the semester.

The lecture will highlight the essential information in the textbook. It will provide additional
material where necessary, and focus on conceptual understanding and problem solving. Lecture
notes will be made available for your convenience, but they are no substitute for regular class
Note: Errors in the lecture notes, the textbook, or in the ancillary material are no excuse for
mistakes on a test or the final.
Calculator: You need a simple “scientific” calculator for this class. Palm-size, laptop or other
portable computing devices are not permitted during tests or the examination. If the screen of
your device is larger than 6 square inches or if the device has a (mini-) typewriter keyboard, the
calculator will not be allowed. Sharing of calculators during tests or the examination is not
Attendance: class attendance is expected, and the attendance is an integral part of the continuous
Tests & Examination: There will be three or more tests (announced/ unannounced) and an
All tests and the examination are closed book and no notes.
You are allowed to use pen or pencil, eraser, and calculator (see above). Everything else, including
cell phones which must be turned off, must be placed under the seat.
Caps or sunglasses may not be worn during the tests and the examination. The female students are
advised to use face fitted (and not loosed) head covers (hijab).
The tests will be 1hour 25 minutes long and will be on the following Mondays during regular class
Test 1 Tuesday, November 26th, 2013
Test 2 Tuesday, December 19th, 2013
Test 3 Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
The instructor may change the any of these dates, and the students will be duly
communicated, if any of these dates conflict with University programme(s). There will be no
make-up tests.
You must take all tests and the examination, unless you have a verifiable, legitimate reason
for missing a test, e.g., a doctor’s note. Otherwise, your score for the missed test or
examination will be a zero.
If you cannot take a test, you must contact the instructor as soon as possible. If you miss a test
for legitimate reasons, your grade for the missed test will be calculated by averaging the grade on
the final and the grades on the tests you took.
The examination will be in June, and the date, time and venue will be as stated on the school
The students are to make complete payment of school fees and other fees and obtain their
eligibility card, as this will serve as the ticket for admission into the examination hall.
1. Excused Absences for University Extracurricular Activities: Students participating in an
officially sanctioned, scheduled University extracurricular activity will be given the opportunity to
make up class assignments or other graded assignments missed as a result of their participation. It
is the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with the instructor prior to any missed
scheduled examination or other missed assignment for making up the work.
2. Policy on Academic Dishonesty: All work undertaken and submitted in this course is governed by
the University’s Honor Code. Students who violate University rules on academic dishonesty (the
FUO Honor Code) are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure in the
course and/or dismissal from the University. Since such dishonesty harms the individual, all
students, and the integrity of the University, policies on academic dishonesty will be strictly
enforced. You agree to abide by the FUO Honor Code, though there may not be a specific pledge on
a test or examination.

Key Concepts and Objectives
Aim: the aim of this course is to introduce the University entrants into Colleges of Natural and
Applied Sciences to the various branches of chemistry and stresses the areas of inorganic, physical
and radiochemistry.
Below are the topics (with brief synopsis) we intend to treat in the form of the objectives of CHM
203: physical chemistry.
Kinetic theory of gases: tenets of the kinetic theory of gases; temperature and kinetic energy of
gas molecule; molecular theory of kinetic energy using the gas laws.
Laws of thermodynamics: concepts of reversibility and entropy; zeroth, first, second and third
laws of thermodynamics; relationships between Cp and Cv ; Gibbs energy;
Phase equilibria: chemical equilibrium; activity of materials in solution; phase behaviour in twocomponent systems: liquid-liquid system, solid-liquid system, vapour-liquid equilibrium (Raoult’s law).
Debye-Huckel’s theory: Debye-Huckel’s theory of ionic solution; Debye relaxation time.
Chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms: rates of reactions; dependence of rates on
concentration; first-order; second-order; zero-order; nth-order reactions; effect of temperature;
kinetics of more complex systems
Electrochemistry and electrochemical cells: electrochemical cells; standard electrode potential;
variation of cell electromotive cells with activity and with temperature.
Acid-base concept: pH hydrolysis and buffer solutions.
Problem Solving Strategy
(adapted from G. Polya, “How To Solve It”, 2nd ed., Princeton UP, Princeton 1973)
• Read the problem.
• Read the problem again.
• Understanding the problem
– Identify the actual problem.
– What is the area of the problem (e.g., molecular motion)?
– What is (are) the unknown(s)? (Make a list if more than one)
– What are the data? List them.
– What are the conditions?
• Devising a plan
– Introduce suitable notation. (Draw a picture.)
– Have you seen the problem before?
– Do you know a similar problem, a related problem having the same unknown(s)?
– Look at the unknowns and list all equations, relations, theorems, etc., that you know and
that have to do with the unknowns. (Carefully state all the limitations of the equations,
e.g., only for ideal gas.)
– Could you solve a simpler problem, a more special problem, a more general problem,
part of the problem?
– Could you restate the problem?
– Could you work backwards from the unknowns to the data?
– Did you use all the data?
– Are there too many data, not enough data?
– Did you take into account all special conditions?
• Carrying out the plan
– Check each step (e.g., dimensional analysis).
– Can you see clearly that the step is correct?
• Checking the solution
– Does the result make sense (correct units, correct sign, order-of-magnitude of the numerical
value is reasonable)?
– Can you check the result, e.g., can you derive it differently?
– Can you check some (easy) special cases?
