CHEM 161: General Chemistry I

CHEM 161 is the first course in a two semester sequence of general chemistry. CHEM 161 introduces the basic principles of chemistry including the metric system, atomic and molecular structure, periodic trends and chemical bonding, the mole concept, writing and balancing chemical equations, stoichiometry and heat of reactions. The course was designed to provide the student with an adequate background in the fundamental concepts of chemistry. Problem solving is emphasized. The course is suitable for students planning careers in science, engineering, nursing, or other areas of study which require a general chemistry course. Normally this course is followed in sequence by CHEM 162. The CHEM 161 course may serve as prerequisite for CHEM 152 in place of CHEM 151. Students who wish to take a lab course should enroll in CHEM 161L.
