CHEM 153 Fall 2012 Introductory Concepts of Chemistry: Advanced Section (Q)

This course parallels Chemistry 151 and provides a foundation in chemistry for those students who are anticipating professional study in chemistry, related sciences, or one of the health professions, as well as for those students who are interested in exploring the fundamental ideas of chemistry as part of their general education. It is designed for those students with sound preparation in secondary school chemistry and to provide the foundation for further study of organic (Chemistry 156) or inorganic/physical (Chemistry 256) chemistry. Principal topics include kinetic theory of gases, modern atomic theory, molecular structure and bonding, states of matter, chemical equilibrium (acid-base and solubility), and an introduction to atomic and molecular spectroscopies. Laboratory work includes synthesis, qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis, and molecular modeling.
