CHM 030: Introduction to Chemical Principles

4 credits (NS)

*There are over 20 sections available; please see course schedule search for days and times

An introduction to important topics in chemistry: atomic structure, properties of matter, chemical reactions, energy, structure and bonding in organic and inorganic compounds. The course features a lecture tightly linked to a three-hour studio experience that combines laboratory work and recitation.


CHM 031: Chemical Equilibria in Aqueous Systems

CRN 40947; 4 credits (NS) MWF 9:10 – 10:10am & M 1:10 – 4:00pm

CRN 41000; 4 credits (NS) MWF 9:10 – 10:10am & T 1:10 – 4:00pm

CRN 40948; 4 credits (NS) MWF 9:10 – 10:10am & W 1:10 – 4:00pm

CRN 42640; 4 credits (NS) MWF 9:10 – 10:10am & F 1:10 – 4:00pm

An introduction to: intermolecular forces and their influence on physical properties and phase behavior; chemical kinetics; thermodynamics in chemical systems; and electrochemistry. The course includes a detailed treatment of equilibria in aqueous solutions, including acid-base, precipitation-solubility, metal-ligand, oxidation-reduction and distribution equilibria. The laboratory work emphasizes the qualitative and quantitative analysis of equilibria in aqueous media. Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory period.
