CHEM 122: General Chemistry I is an introductory general chemistry course leading into science or engineering programs for students who have a solid chemistry background, including Chemistry 12 or equivalent. After a short review of fundamental chemistry, classical and quantum mechanical concepts are used to discuss atomic and molecular structure. The course ends with an investigation of intermolecular forces in liquids and solids. The lab work stresses scientific observations and measurements using chemical syntheses and quantitative analyses.
CHEM 12 or CHEM 62/63 or CHEM 110, and Pre-calculus Math 11 (Principles of MATH 11) or Math 050 or MATH 52/53, each with a “C” or better. Pre-calculus Math 12 (Principles of Math 12) or Math 051 or MATH 62/63 is recommended.
