CHEM1111 - General Inorganic Chemistry I
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.
- 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.
