CHE 111 General College Chemistry I: SC1

5 Credit Hours • 105 Contact Hours (60 Lecture, 45 Lab)

Prerequisite: MAT 121 or concurrent enrollment and one year of high school chemistry

Focuses on basic chemistry and measurement, matter, chemical formulas, reactions and equations, stoichiometry, and thermochemistry. This courses covers the development of atomic theory culminating in the use of quantum numbers to determine electron configurations of atoms and the relationship of electron configuration to chemical bond theory and molecular orbital theory. The course includes gases, liquids, and solids and problem-solving skills are emphasized through laboratory experiments.
