CHM1045

Title: GENERAL CHEMISTRY 1

Credit Hrs: 3.00

Description: This is the first course in a two semester sequence, CHM 1045 and CHM 1046. This sequence includes two laboratories: CHM 1045L to be taken concurrently with CHM 1045 and CHM 1046L to be taken with CHM 1046. This sequence is for students who have already had high school chemistry. Topics covered include: chemical measurements, stoichiometry, atomic structure periodic table, chemical bonding, inorganic compounds, nomenclature, formula writing, thermochemistry, gases, liquids, solids, solutions chemistry and ionic reactions and some descriptive chemistry of non-metals. To enroll, it is strongly recommended that students have had previous chemistry at the high school or college level. If a student has not had prior experience in a chemistry course the CHM 1040/CHM 1041/CHM 1046 sequence is highly recommended.
