We will first study atomic structure, quantum mechanics, and electron configuration. We will then apply that knowledge to better understand periodic trends (electonegativity, ionisation energy, atomic and ionic radii). On top of that, we will expand upon our Level 2 knowledge of 3-D VSEPR molecular shapes and intermolecular forces. Finally, we'll heat things up a bit and seek the answers to some questions about thermodynamics - how do many reactions release or absorb heat energy, and how can we harness this energy for useful purposes?
