This is a two-semester sequence course designed for the science or engineering major who is expected to have a strong background in mathematics. Topics of the first semester course (CHM 111) include measurement, nomenclature, stoichiometry, atomic structure, equations and reactions, basic concepts of thermochemistry, chemical and physical properties, bonding, molecular structure, gas laws and solutions. Laboratory is required Prerequisite: Math 112.
Topics of the second semester course (CHM 112) include chemical kinetics, chemical equilibria, acids and bases, ionic equilibria of weak electrolytes, solubility product principle, chemical thermodynamics, electrochemistry, oxidation-reduction, nuclear chemistry, an introduction to organic chemistry and biochemistry, atmospheric chemistry and selected topics in descriptive chemistry including the metals, nonmetals, semi-metals, coordination compounds, transition compounds and post-transition compounds. Laboratory is required Prerequisite: CHM 111.
