CHM 1100 - General Chemistry I


4 Credit(s) Hours: 6 hrs.

First of a two-semester lecture and laboratory sequence intended for science and engineering majors. Lecture topics include: atomic theory, stoichiometry of chemical reactions, types of reactions, introduction to acid-base, solubility, and reduction-oxidation chemistry, thermochemistry, quantum mechanical description of atoms, the elements and the periodic table, covalent bonding, molecular geometry, properties of real and ideal gases, liquids, and solids, and colligative properties of binary mixtures. Laboratory: An experimental approach to chemical sciences with emphasis on developing fundamental, reproducible laboratory techniques and a goal of understanding achieving precision and accuracy in laboratory experiments. Proper use of laboratory equipment and standard wet chemical methods are practiced. Areas of investigations include acid-base, precipitation, and reduction-oxidation chemistry, thermochemistry, ideal gases, spectroscopy, and green chemistry.
Prerequisite(s): MAT 900  or a passing score on the ACCUPLACER CUNY Assessment Test in Math or completion of developmental mathematics and either CHM 100  or CHM 200 , or passing score on chemistry exemption exam. Contact Department for Chemistry Exemption Exam information.
Required Core: Life and Physical Sciences
