CHEM 115 - Accelerated General Chemistry


This course combines topics from both CHEM 111  and CHEM 112  and is meant to be an accelerated one-semester version of General Chemistry. The course begins with a rigorous treatment of atomic and molecular structure, and explores various modern models of chemical bonding. These ideas are applied to a thorough discussion of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics. Conceptual and mathematical methods for quantifying chemical equilibrium are also explored, with particular emphasis on the chemistry of acids and bases. Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory per week. Lab fee of $12 required. Fall semester. Prerequisite(s): AP CHEM score of 4 or 5, IB CHEM score of 5,6 or 7 or satisfactory performance on a placement examination (administered during Orientation Week). Some knowledge of calculus is recommended. (4 Credits)
