CHEM& 161L : GENERAL CHEMISTRY WITH LAB I
For science and engineering majors. Atomic nature of matter, stoichiometry, chemical reactions, periodic table, gas laws, thermo chemistry, and quantum concepts. Three hours of lecture and four hours laboratory. (NS)
- Develop problem-solving skills that are supported by algebraic and numeracy skills.
- Use measurable quantities of matter to determine physical and chemical properties.
- Describe the atom and understand the properties of the subatomic particles within the context of the Periodic Table.
- Explain the relationship between the position of an element in the periodic table and its physical/chemical properties, including periodic trends.
- Describe the differences in the structure and properties of substances based on different types and models of bonding.
- Classify and balance chemical reactions and predict products for different types of reactions and use stoichiometric calculations to predict quantities.
- Apply the properties of ionic and molecular substances in aqueous solution to describe systems and predict behavior.
- Use the kinetic-molecular theory to explain the behavior of gases from a molecular perspective and apply the ideal gas law.
- Describe intermolecular forces and chemical bonds and how they influence physical properties and phase transitions.
- Develop laboratory practices for conducting experiments and reporting experimental results within the context of the scientific method including the proper application of significant figures, precision, and accuracy.
