Chemistry (A Level) at Roundhay School All through education from 4 to 18
This course will be of relevance to anyone who is interested in exploring the fundamental principles that form the basis of chemistry and the applications of these principles.
A detailed outline is produced below.
Atomic structure, Amount of substance, Bonding, Energetics, Kinetics, Chemical, equilibria and Le Chatelier’s principle, Oxidation, reduction and redox equations
Periodicity, Group 2 the alkaline earth metals, Group 7(17) the halogens
Introduction to organic chemistry, Alkanes, Halogenoalkanes, Alkenes, Alcohols, Organic analysis
Thermodynamics, Rate equations, Equilibrium constant Kc for homogeneous systems Electrode potentials and electrochemical cells, Acids and bases
Properties of Period 3 elements and their oxides, Transition metals, Reactions of ions in aqueous solution
Optical isomerism, Aldehydes and ketones Carboxylic acids and derivatives, Aromatic chemistry, Amines, Polymers, Amino acids, proteins and DNA Organic synthesis, Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
Chemistry can open pathways to many careers either through a university or modern apprenticeship route.
Examples of subjects where Chemistry is desirable are: Chemistry; Teaching; Chemical Engineer; Pharmacy; Medicine; Dentistry; Veterinary; Biochemistry; Forensics; Public protection; and many more, too numerous to list here.
To discuss the course, contact Mr P Hurst Head of Science.
