This is the first semester of college chemistry and is appropriate for students interested in pursuing further studies in science or engineering. It is a mathematical approach to the principles of chemistry and assumes that students have had an above average preparation in chemistry. Topics include a brief review of problem solving using dimensional analysis, graphing, and significant figures; chemical stoichiometry; gas laws; thermochemistry; an in-depth treatment of atomic structure, periodicity, and chemical bonding; phase relationships. Three class hours, three laboratory hours. (SUNY-NS)
Prerequisite: MTH 165 a grade of C- or higher or equivalent; CHE 145 with a grade of C- or higher, or above average preparation in high school chemistry.* Regents or equivalent strongly recommended.
