General chemistry gives us a basic understanding about chemistry before we start to learn advanced lessons of chemistry. General chemistry includes following sections to cover. These sections may vary according to your country or syllabus. Therefore check your syllabus when you refer this lessons.
Good understanding of general chemistry helps to understand inorganic, organic and physical chemistry very well.
Study following lessons to draw lewis structures and resonance structures.
General chemistry covers all the basic theories you want to understand inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry and organic chemistry in grade 11 and 12.
Importance of general chemistry is explained below.
How to balance NaOH and chlorine gas reaction under two conditions, hot concentrated and cold dilute. This reaction meets in p block chemistry under inorganic chemistry. But balancing a redox reaction is taught at general chemistry section.
Different types of intermolecular forces such as hydrogen bonds, dipole diole forces, vandetvl's forces are learnt in general chemistry. These forces have a very strong effect on melting and boiling points of compounds or elements. We have a long lesson for compare melting and boiling points of organic compounds
Qualitative Analysis for anions and cationsEmission of gases Identify ammonium salts identify d block cations by ammonia solution Identify halides Identify carbonate ions identify chromium compounds Testing for thiosulfate (S2O32-) Testing for phosphate ion
