CH 125 - Principles of Chemistry


Credits: 4
An introduction to the fundamental principles of chemistry that provides one of the bases for the in-depth study of natural science disciplines; appropriate for students who intend to major in the natural sciences. Topics include atomic and molecular structure, periodic relationships, properties of gases, kinetics, equilibria, acids and bases, electrochemistry, and thermodynamics.  Laboratory experiments serve to illustrate concepts learned in the classroom. In both the classroom and laboratory, emphasis is placed on using quantitative reasoning skills to understand, interpret, and make predictions about chemical systems.
Prerequisites: (Placement at the AQR level or completion of an FQR course or QR1) and   or placement based on the online Chemistry diagnostic exam.
Note(s): Three hours of lecture/discussion and one three-hour lab per week. (Fulfills AQR, QR2, and natural sciences requirement.) Partially fulfills the writing requirement in the major.
