CHEM 122/CHEM 123: General Chemistry I/General Chemistry I Laboratory

Class Program
Credits 4

This course, General Chemistry I, examines topics such as the nature and properties of matter; atoms, molecules and ions as basic building blocks of matter; measurement in chemistry; calculations involving chemical formulas and equations; general properties of aqueous solutions; electronic structure of atoms; periodic properties of the elements; basic concepts of chemical bonding; concepts in thermochemistry; characteristics of gases.

This course, General Chemistry I Laboratory, is designed to reinforce some of the concepts discussed in the General Chemistry I lecture (CHEM 122). It exposes them to basic technical and safety skills required for a chemistry laboratory. It also allows students to apply the scientific process while examining topics such as properties of matter, measurements, chemical formulas, thermochemistry, and basic concepts of bonding and molecular structure.
