CHEM1111 – General Inorganic Chemistry I pdf

Credits: 5 (4/1/0)
Description: Meets MnTC Goal Areas 2 and 3. This course is the first of a two-course series (CHEM1111 and CHEM1112). Students will learn the general chemistry principles: atomic structure, stoichiometry, solutions, bonding, thermochemistry, electronic structure, periodic properties of the elements, intermolecular forces and properties of solids, liquids and gases. The course includes a lab.
Prerequisites: MATH1020
Instructor permission for students who do not score high enough on the placement exam for placement into Chem1111 but wish to enroll in Chem1111. Students with this permission must co-register for Chem 0095.
