CH 122 College Chemistry II

The second of a three term college chemistry sequence for students in human performance, certain health occupations programs, agriculture, animal science, and fisheries and wildlife. This sequence is for students who have had no previous training in chemistry and whose program of study requires only a one-year sequence of college chemistry. Topics include atomic structure, periodic trends, covalent and ionic bonding, atomic and molecular orbital theory, phase changes, colligative properties, intermolecular forces, and organic chemistry. Students are advised to investigate and understand the degree requirements at the university where they intend to transfer. (Note - this sequence is not equivalent to General Chemistry. CH 121 does not fulfill the Baccalaureate Core requirements at OSU, however the next two courses in the series, CH 122 and CH 123, fulfill Baccalaureate Core requirements at OSU.) CH 121, CH 122, CH 123 must be taken in order.




Prerequisite: MTH 111 and CH 121, or CH 201, or CH 221 with a grade of C or better.

General Education Requirements

AS Physical Science


Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
Solve scientific problems with quantitative methods regarding electromagnetic radiation, chemical bonding, phase changes, and colligative properties. Apply chemical principles related to quantum mechanics, atomic and molecular orbital theory, periodic trends, intermolecular attractions of pure substances and solutions, covalent bond theory, and organic chemistry. Work safely in a laboratory environment while observing and accurately recording measurements related to chemical phenomena.
