CHEM 105 General Chemistry I + Lab

Chemistry is the study of matter in all of its forms, from simple gasses to complex polymers, and is one of the fundamental cornerstones of a scientific education. A firm understanding of chemistry will provide a basis for understanding a broad array of other disciplines, including the biological, environmental, and physical sciences. Your education will include: fundamental postulates and principles of chemistry; stoichiometry in many forms; ionic precipitation, acid-base, and redox reactions; gasses and gas laws; simple thermochemistry; quantum mechanics and electronic structure; periodicity; chemical structure, bonding, and MO theory. The material covered is equivalent to one full semester of general chemistry (one half of a two-semester course series compressed to one quarter). There is a weekly lab.
