An introduction to the principles of general, organic, and biological chemistry that are relevant to students enrolled in health sciences career programs. In the classroom, students will apply these principles to discover their relevance to human/environmental health issues. In the laboratory, students will use the scientific method to explore and evaluate chemical phenomena that are based on these principles. Topics include measurement, atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, reactions, equilibrium, gases, liquids, solids, solutions, acid-based chemistry, nuclear chemistry, physical and chemical properties of organic compounds, biomolecules, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and metabolism. This course is intended for the non-science major and can be used for Natural Science elective credit in many programs of study. Three class hours, three laboratory hours. (SUNY-NS)
