CHEM 111-04

General Chemistry I: Structure and Equilibrium

  • Days: MWF
  • Meeting Time: 10:50 am-11:50 am
  • Room: OLRI 350
  • Instructor: Paul Fischer

Notes: *First day attendance required*

This course offers a rigorous, foundational treatment of atoms and molecules. We study the nature of chemical bonding and how bonding gives rise to the three-dimensional structure of matter. We explore how the macroscopic properties of substances can be interpreted in terms of atomic and molecular structure. We also learn mathematical and conceptual tools for quantifying chemical equilibrium, with an emphasis on the reactions of acids and bases. Laboratory work reinforces concepts in lecture, and also provides a review of fundamental topics, such as stoichiometry, gas laws, and solution-phase reactions, that are essential for future course work in chemistry.

Notes: *ACTC students may register on April 29th with permission of the instructor*

For Fall 2014 this course will be offered as Multivariable Calculus, with the following description:

Differentiation and integration of functions of two and three variables. Applications of these, including optimization techniques. Also includes introduction to vector calculus, with treatment of vector fields, line and surface integrals, and Green’s Theorem. (4 credits)

For Spring 2015 this course will be offered as Applied Multivariable Calculus III, with the following description:

This course focuses on calculus useful for the mathematical and physical sciences. Topics include: scalar and vector-valued functions and derivatives; parameterization and integration over regions, curves, and surfaces; the divergence theorem; and Taylor series. Attention is given to both symbolic and numerical computing. Applications drawn from the natural sciences, probability, and other areas of mathematics. Every semester. (4 credits)
