CH 221 - General Chemistry 1

4 Credit(s)

Lecture for the first course of the traditional general chemistry sequence designed for science, engineering and health science majors. Introduces measurement,atoms, stoichiometry, gases, thermochemistry and electronic structure and periodicity. It is recommended to take the accompanying lab, CH 227 (2 credits), at the same time as the lecture.

Prerequisite: MTH 095  with grade of C- or better or place into MTH 111  or higher on math placement
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:

1. Interpret, and analyze data and error, and communicate findings to demonstrate understanding of basic chemical concepts and reactions

2. Apply unit analysis problem solving techniques or mathematical formulas, individually and in groups, with provided data, to solve unit conversion, stoichiometry, thermochemical, solution, gas law and calorimetry questions

3. Use and describe real life situations as examples to demonstrate and explain key chemical concepts such as fuel selection and ammonia synthesis

4. Use the vocabulary of chemistry to explain, discuss and solve problems about systems of measurement, properties of atoms, molecules and ions, stoichiometry, solutions, gases, thermochemistry, atomic structure and periodicity

5. Understand and explain the evolution of the atom from Dalton to quantum mechanics
