Designed for students in the Exercise Physiology program, this course covers the chemistry required to understand atomic and molecular structure, states of matter, thermodynamics, equilibrium chemistry in aqueous solution and introductory kinetics, the chemistry of organic compounds, stereochemistry, functional groups and their reactions especially amines, amides, acids and esters, redox chemistry of oxygen. Case studies and experiments relevant to health and exercise science are also included. The Chemistry in the course will prepare students for the Level II Biochemistry and Anatomy components of their programs. Assumed knowledge: A basic knowledge of Chemistry equivalent to the NSW Year 11 Chemistry syllabus. It is also recommended that BABS1201 be taken concurrently. Note: Students who have completed this course and wish to take further Chemistry courses should consult the School of Chemistry or their Program Advisor. This course is designed to cover a highly specific area of Chemistry and will not be useful for any students who wish to further their Chemistry knowledge.
