Chemistry Honors

The scientific discipline involved with compounds composed of atoms, i.e. elements, and molecules, i.e. combinations of atoms: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other compounds.

No results.

Unit 1: The Atom and Nuclear Chemistry

How the atom was discovered, nuclear decay types, half-lives, radiometric dating.

Unit 10: Reaction Energy

Heat energy, enthalpy, exothermic and endothermic reactions, entropy, Gibbs free energy.

Unit 2: Chemistry Foundations

Mixtures, temperature conversion, physical and chemical properties, and molar mass.

Unit 3: Electrons in Atoms and Periodicity

Waves, Bohr model, quantum model, and periodic trends, and metals vs. nonmetals.

Unit 4: Bonding and Hybridization

Covalent and ionic bonds, and Lewis Dot structures.

Unit 5: Chemical Compounds, Formulas, and Organic Chemistry

Writing formulas and naming, oxidation numbers, organic nomenclature, reaction types.

Unit 6: Chemical Reactions and Stoichiometry

Predicting whether reactions will occur with an activity series, stoichiometry, limiting/excess reactant.

Unit 7: Intermolecular Forces and States of Matter

Types of intermolecular forces and states of matter (solids, liquids, gas laws, effusion, diffusion).

Unit 8: Solutions

Types of solutions, solute vs. solvent, solubility, concentration, colligative properties.
