Primarily intended for biochemistry and chemistry majors, but open to anyone who is interested.
CHEM 12100 all sections PRINCIPLES OF CHEMISTRY NS 2a
4 credits, Three hours of class meetng per week, one hour recitation per week and three hours of laboratory per week.
STUDENTS: Required of chemistry, biology, environmental science and physical therapy majors, taken by many health science students, and open to anyone else who is interested and qualified.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is the first semester of a four-semester science major’s sequence. The four semesters provide a foundation for advanced work in chemistry and biochemistry. The topics covered in the first semester include atomic structure, chemical reactivity, stoichiometry, chemical bonding and molecular structure. Periodic trends among the elements and their properties are presented with the help of the periodic table.
