Application of principles of physical chemistry to the description and composition of natural waters and engineering treatment of drinking water and wastewater. Studies of acid/base chemistry, complexation, precipitation, and oxidation-reduction potential chemistry.
What you will know at the end of the course:You will know how to solve chemical equilibrium problems and understand how inorganic chemicals speciate (behave chemically) when mixed into natural or engineered water systems. You will learn about the chemistry of lakes, oceans, and groundwater through relevant examples. You will learn about the chemical principles underlying many drinking water and wastewater treatment processes. You will have the fundamental concepts to be able to apply your knowledge to other problems.
