Mode of Teaching:
4 lab hours/week
Laboratory: In-person at Burnaby campus
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.

|5||Spectrophotometric Determination of an Equilibrium Constant|
|6||The Solubility Product of Potassium Hydrogen Tartrate|
Final exam as scheduled.
- Lab Reports and LON-CAPA Assignments 55%
- Quizzes and Examinations 45%
- Your instructor will contact you via email the week before the first week of classes.
- Labs begin the first week of classes. All students must attend the first laboratory session.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html 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. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
Students with a faith background who may need accommodations during the semester are encouraged to assess their needs as soon as possible and review the Multifaith religious accommodations website. The page outlines ways they begin working toward an accommodation and ensure solutions can be reached in a timely fashion.
