CHEM 1610: Introductory Chemistry I for Engineers
Credits: 3
Introduces the principles and applications of chemistry. Topics include stoichiometry, chemical equations and reactions, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry, chemical kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, and descriptive chemistry of the elements. For students planning to elect further courses in chemistry, physics, and biology and to fulfill prehealth prerequisites. Prerequisite: CHEM 1611 or 1411 may be taken concurrently or after completing 1610. Drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1610, requires drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1611/1411. A grade of C- or higher required for CHEM 1620.
CHEM 1810: Principles of Chemical Structure (Accelerated)
Credits: 3
First of a four-semester sequence covering the basic concepts of general & organic chemistry. Establishes a foundation of fundamental particles & the nature of the atom, develops a rationale for molecular structure, & explores the basis of chemical reactivity. Topics: introductory quantum mechanics, atomic structure, chemical bonding, spectroscopy, & elementary molecular reactivity. Prerequisite: A strong background in high school chemistry. CHEM 1811 or 1411 may be taken concurrently or after completing CHEM 1810. Drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1810, requires drop/withdrawal from CHEM 1811/1411.
