Chemistry is the foundation for everything around us and relates to everything we do. This three-course sequence provides the fundamental principles of general chemistry. It provides the prerequisites for advanced chemistry offerings as well as various studies: science, liberal arts, health, agriculture, engineering, and medicine. These courses include a mandatory laboratory component as an integral part of the course.
General Chemistry with Laboratory I
This is the first course in a year-long general chemistry sequence. Topics covered in fall quarter include unit conversions, electron structures, and chemical bonding. Laboratory experiments will be carried out to complement the course materials.
General Chemistry with Laboratory II
General Chemistry II builds upon material covered in General Chemistry I. Topics covered in winter quarter include thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibria, and acid-base equilibria. Course has a mandatory laboratory component.
General Chemistry with Laboratory III
Spring quarter will start with topics related to water -- water properties, acid rains, industrial, agricultural, and household water consumption in the U.S.A., water quality, water pollution and purification, water softening with ion exchange, osmosis and reverse osmosis technologies, disinfection, and pure drinking water. Our studies will lead into various energy sources and hydrocarbons, energy from fossil fuels, hydroelectric, solar, wind, biomass, and nuclear power, radioactivity, and energy from nuclear reaction. We’ll conclude our spring quarter with organic chemicals and polymers, and finally, will focus on chemistry of life, including biochemistry, amino acids, peptides, and protein structures and function. In addition, students will be expected to participate in the on-campus Science Carnival.
