CHEM 14B 1 SPRING 2006 Instructor Dr Laurence Lavelle CHEMISTRY COURSE ORGANIZATION SYLLABUS DESCRIPTION We cover phase changes thermochemistry the first second and third laws of thermodynamics free energy changes electrochemistry and its role as energy source chemical kinetics catalysis and reaction mechanisms including organic reactions and enzymes general classes and naming of organic molecules functional groups structure conformations and relative energies of organic molecules application of thermodynamics and kinetics to organic and biochemical reactions and the use of molecular modeling software to illustrate molecular structures and their relative energies Each section will apply fundamental concepts to important examples such as the environment alternative fuels batteries H fuel cells organic and biological molecules and biophysical applications Material covered will also be related to your 14BL lab experiments in particular your experiments with p nitrophenylacetate and aspirin LECTURES M W F 10am in CS24 INSTRUCTOR Dr Laurence Lavelle 3048A Young Hall OFFICE HOURS M W F 1 2pm Brief questions will also be answered after each lecture Course related information will be available and your questions can be posted at any time to the Virtual Office Hours VOH under the Chemistry Biochemistry Department Home Page http voh chem ucla edu All technical problems with VOH must be sent to voh chem ucla edu TA s Teaching Assistants Sanaz Kabehie sanaz chem ucla edu Cesar Mejia mejia chem ucla edu and Jennifer Robbins Luft jrobbins chem ucla edu TA s will arrange their own office hours and these will be posted on VOH You may go to any TA office hour REQUIRED TEXTS Chemical Principles The Quest for Insight 3rd edition by Peter Atkins Loretta Jones with solution manual model building kit and Organic Chemistry 4th edition by Paula Bruice with study guide solution manual Careful consideration went into choosing these texts you will find them good to read Note Several other chemistry textbooks have been placed on reserve in College Library if you desire further supplementary material READING HOMEWORK Read assigned chapters before the related lectures occur Working through problems will facilitate your learning the course material and developing your problem solving skills Homework problems are given with the lecture schedule on the back of this page Homework is not turned in or graded It is your responsibility to do at least the assigned homework in order to master the material covered You should plan for eight hours of independent study per week and the more problems you do the more you will learn ORGANIC SOFTWARE MODELING ASSIGNMENTS ChemDraw and Chem3D are very useful in learning to draw visualize and analyze molecules and are the most commonly use software packages used by chemists at universities and in industry You will be using this free software in our excellent Science Learning Center SLC EXAMINATIONS Two 45 minute quizzes will be given in discussion sections See VOH for schedule The midterm exam is Wednesday May 10 6 to 8pm The final exam is Tuesday June 13 3 to 6pm Special Bonus The each exam will include one question that will be taken from your Student s Solutions Manual So it is very much in your interest to work through these questions All quizzes and exams must be written in pen No make up quizzes or exams will be given No one will be permitted to take the final exam either earlier or later than the scheduled time and no one can receive a passing grade for the course without taking the final exam There are no regrades Only nonprogrammable non graphing calculators will be allowed during exams Pagers and cellular phones are not allowed in the classroom during lectures or exams Students possessing such items during exams or who commit other forms of academic dishonesty will receive a zero on the exam and will be referred to the Dean of Students GRADING Quizzes Midterm Final Total 25 30 45 100 50pt x 2 100pt 45min x 2 90min 120pt 110min 180pt 170min 400pt All quizzes and exams have a total score but grades are only assigned at the end of the course At the end of the quarter when the class average score out of 400 points is known are individual and final grades assigned and they are based curved on the class average However you need 50 or higher 200 points or higher to pass this course with a C or higher Thermochemistry and The First Law of Thermodynamics phase changes exothermic endothermic reactions enthalpy is a state function Hess s law using standard enthalpies of known reactions or bond enthalpies or standard enthalpies of formation to calculate an unknown enthalpy heat capacities calorimeters calorimetry calculations thermodynamic systems calculating the work of expansion and
