All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials. Additionally, the lecturer will refer foreign students to the corresponding literature in English, as well as give them the possibility of taking the associated exams in English.

Description:
COURSE GOALS: Systematization of basic chemical concepts about the properties of matter at the macroscopic, particles, and symbolic level. Integration of existing and new knowledge in a conceptual entity.

LEARNING OUTCOMES AT THE LEVEL OF THE PROGRAMME:
1. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
1.2. demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the fundamental concepts in chemistry
1.4. demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the most important chemistry laws and theories
2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
2.2. describe important aspects of chemical change
2.3. apply stoichiometry
5. LEARNING SKILLS
5.1.search for and use professional literature as well as any other sources of relevant information

LEARNING OUTCOMES SPECIFIC FOR THE COURSE:
1. Organize knowledge into conceptual units.
2. Formulate the problem based on the data and the set of conditions (stoichiometry).
3. Explain the physical and chemical changes in terms of scientific concepts and principles.
4. Explain the meaning of the chemical equation (qualitatively and quantitatively).
5. Distinguish three basic types of chemical bonds (ionic, covalent and metallic).
6. Predict and analyze the molecular structure and its properties.
7. Explain at the particle's level dissolving processes, and properties of the solutions.
8. Explain the influence of various factors on the chemical equilibrium.
9. Predict pH of aqueous solutions of certain substances.
10. Explain the difference between galvanic and electrolytic cell.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
1st - 3rd week: The components of matter, physical and chemical properties of matter, states of matter and phase changes, the fundamental chemical laws and concepts, atomic theory and structure of atoms, types of chemical reactions, chemical equations, stoichiometry - different approaches
4th - 6th week: Gas laws, basic concepts of thermochemistry, quantum theory and atomic structure, electron configuration and chemical periodicity
7th - 10th week: Models of chemical bonding (ionic, covalent, metallic), the shapes of molecules (Lewis structures, VSEPR), theories of covalent bonding (valence bond, orbital hybridization, molecular orbital), electronegativity and bond polarity, intermolecular forces (hydrogen bond, states of mater), the relation of structure and bonding to the physical and chemical properties of matter
11th - 15th week: Properties of solutions, basic concepts of chemical kinetics and equilibrium, equilibrium in solutions of acids and bases, electrochemistry, systematization of basic concepts of the course

REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS:
