Listed in: Chemistry, as CHEM-155
Formerly listed as: CHEM-15
A study of the basic concepts of chemistry for students particularly interested in natural science. Topics to be covered include atomic and molecular structure, spectroscopy, states of matter, and stoichiometry. These physical principles are applied to a variety of inorganic, organic, and biochemical systems. Both individual and bulk properties of atoms and molecules are considered with an emphasis on the conceptual foundations and the quantitative chemical relationships which form the basis of chemical science. This course is designed to utilize the background of those students with strong preparation in science and mathematics and to provide both breadth in subject matter and depth in coverage. Placement into CHEM 155 is determined by the chemistry department. Four hours of lecture and discussion and three hours of laboratory per week.
Each laboratory section is limited to 20 students. Sufficient sections will be added to meet total enrollment.
In Fall 2020, the lectures and laboratories in CHEM-155 will be online. It is our hope that most of the discussion sections will be presented in person for those on campus with one or more sections offered online for those participating through remote learning. Office hours will likewise be offered both in person and online.
Fall semester. Professors Marshall and Olshansky
