    CHEM 121 with a minimum grade of C-. Corequisite: CHEM 122.



Experiments in chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, qualitative analysis, electrochemistry and chemical kinetics. Quantitative.


4 lab hours/week

General Course Description:  Experiments in chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, qualitative analysis, electrochemistry and chemical kinetics. A computer interface, probes and computer software will be used for data collection and analysis in several experiments. This course is designed to complement Chem 122 and students who expect to take further courses in physical or inorganic chemistry should take Chem 122 concurrently with 126.

Laboratory Experiments:

1      Endothermic and Exothermic Reactions. Excel Tutorial.
2   Laboratory Techniques
3   Kinetics
4   Kinetics
5   Spectrophotometric Determination of an Equilibrium Constant
6   The Solubility Product of Potassium Hydrogen Tartrate
7   Acid-Base Reactions
8   Buffers
9   Thermodynamics
10   Electrochemistry
11   Electrochemistry

Final exam as scheduled.


  • Lap Reports and LON-CAPA Assignments 55%
  • Quizzes and Examinations 45%


Labs begin the first week of classes. All students must attend the first laboratory session.
Lab coats and safety glasses/goggles are mandatory for all Chemistry labs.


A grade of “Incomplete” will be awarded to students who do not complete all experiments. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the Instructor within a week of a missed lab, provide documentation for the absence and reschedule the experiment.  Failure to do so will result in mark penalties.



  • Spiral-bound or hard cover notebook.
  • Scientific calculator: SHARP EL-510RN (Aurex SC 6145 also acceptable).
  • Lab coat and safety glasses/goggles.


Lab manuals will be distributed in class.

Department Undergraduate Notes:

A grade of C- or better is required for all prerequisite courses.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
