CHE 124 - General, Organic, and Biochemistry (Revised)
This course is an introduction to the principles of general, organic, and biological chemistry that are relevant to students interested in a health related profession. A strong knowledge base of general chemistry is necessary in order for the student to be successful in CHE 124. See prerequisites below. Students are expected to be familiar with concepts such as: significant figures, dimensional analysis, ionic compounds, molecular geometry, polarity, the mole concept, and stoichiometry prior to taking CHE 124. Topics for CHE 124 include: measurement; dimensional analysis; chemical compounds and their bonds; redox reactions and energetics of chemical reactions; gases; solutions; acids and bases; nuclear chemistry; structural formulas, chemical and physical properties of organic compounds, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and metabolism. This is a Natural Science course. Three class hours, three laboratory hours. (SUNY-NS) 4 Credits.
Prerequisite(s): CHE 100 or high school Chemistry with a minimum grade of C; and MCC level 6 Mathematics Placement or MTH 098 with a minimum grade of C.
