Course objective:
At the end of the course students will be able to :
• Explain certain key introductory concepts in, atomic structure, orbital energy, shielding, covalent and ionic bonds, ionic structures, hybridization, valence shell electron pair repulsion, molecular symmetry, and molecular symbols.
• Use the skills development in the explanation of physical and chemical behaviors of some molecules such as H2O, NH3, and CH3, etc.
• To provide experience in the periodic table, periodicity, metal, non-metal, metalloids properties.
• To obtain necessary information about bond theories; molecular orbital theory, valence bond theory.
• Focus on the type of crystals, in order to know some properties of them which related to the nature of the crystal.
