CHE*111*10 Description

General Chemistry I with Lab

The first part of a two-semester sequence that focuses on the fundamental principles of chemistry. Key topics are atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, and stoichiometry, with an emphasis on molecules and reactions important in biological systems. Other topics include thermochemistry, kinetics, chemical equilibria, electrochemistry, intermolecular forces and states of matter, periodic properties, coordination chemistry, and an introduction to organic chemistry, biochemistry, and Green Chemistry. Laboratory work is designed to complement lecture material. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory each week.
