Development of capacities for the comprehension of general chemistry and its application in the graphic processes, Comprehension of the chemical variables within the process.
1 - Structure of matter: properties of matter; extensive and intensive properties; density and temperature (scales). Classification of matter: mixtures and pure substances. The atoms. The discovery of subatomic particles. Atomic number and isotopes. Ions. Periodic table. Periodic variation of metals, non-metals and metaloids. Electronic configurations and the periodic table: variation of atomic properties.
2 - Chemical bonding: Octet rule. Covalent bonds, ionic and metal. Nomenclature of ionic compounds.
3 stoichiometry: atomic mass, mole, molar mass and chemical reactions. Hit chemical equations; solutions and molarity. Preparation of solutions for weighing, diluting and from concentrated solutions.
Practical work # 1 - Lab work for the ambiance of students to chemistry laboratory, knowledge of commonly used material, the use of analytical balances and familiarization with the descriptive statistical data analysis.
Practical work # 2 - laboratory work for the implementation of the stoichiometry of knowledge in the preparation of solutions for weighing, dilution and from concentrated solutions.
Continuous assessment has practical and theoretical components. A minimum mark of 10 is required for both components. The final mark is the weighted average of the two components: practical (40%) and theoretical (60%)
