CHEM100 - General Chemistry


Credits: 4

This course provides a variety of approaches used in answering qualitative and quantitative problems in chemistry. Fundamental concepts presented in lecture and laboratory include: units of measurement; dimensional analysis; classification of matter; chemical nomenclature; the mole concept; reaction types with stoichiometry calculations; states of matter including gas properties, solution chemistry , and solids; thermochemistry; atomic/electronic structure/properties and periodicity; types of chemical bonding and molecular structures; states of matter and phase diagrams; intermolecular forces; physical properties of solutions; reaction kinetics and factors affecting reaction rates; chemical equilibrium; and LeChatelier’s Principle. General Chemistry laboratory will involve activities relevant to the course content by incorporating modern laboratory techniques and measurements as well as computer data processing.

Corequisite: MATH 101 
3 class hours a week
