CHM 121 - General Chemistry I
The first semester of a two-semester sequence, the course gives students a solid foundation in general chemistry. Topics include measurement, structures of atoms, molecules and ions, inorganic chemical nomenclature, chemical reactions and stoichiometry, acid-base, and oxidation-reduction reactions, gases and the kinetic-molecular theory, thermochemistry, electronic structure, periodicity, chemical bonding and molecular geometry. Lab work reinforces basic principles and emphasizes analytical techniques. (Fulfills Science Elective requirement in Art and Sciences program). Students retaking this course must repeat both the lab and lecture.
