CHEM C 1403x-C1404y General Chemistry (Lecture)
Preparation equivalent to one year of high school chemistry is assumed and
concurrent registration in Calculus I. Students lacking such preparation
should plan independent study of chemistry over the summer or take CHEM W0001 before taking C1403. Topics include stoichiometry, states of matter,
chemical equilibria, acids and bases, chemical thermodynamics, nuclear
properties, electronic structures of atoms, periodic properties, chemical
bonding, molecular geometry, introduction to organic and biological
chemistry, solid state and materials science, polymer science and
macromolecular structures, chemical kinetics, coordination chemistry, and
electrochemistry. Although C1403 and C1404 are separate courses, students are expected to take
both terms sequentially. the order of presentation of topics may differ from
the order presented here, and from year to year. - R. Friesner, G. Parkin, M.

Prerequisites: concurrent registration in MATH V1101; for C1404: CHEM C1403 or W1403. Recitation Section Required.
