Description

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.

Learning Outcomes

  • 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.
