Laboratory Science

An introduction to the composition, structure, and properties of matter. The first semester covers stoichiometry, atomic structure, periodic trends, bonding and molecular geometry, and the behavior of gases, liquids, and solids. The laboratory stresses basic techniques and quantitative applications. Basic algebra skills are required. Concurrent enrollment in calculus is recommended for students who intend to go on in chemistry.

Distribution

Laboratory Science

Students study the structure and reactions of specific types of organic compounds and develop interrelationships that provide an integrated understanding of organic chemistry. The course emphasizes general principles and reaction mechanisms, but students are also expected to accumulate and utilize factual material. The laboratory is coordinated with classroom topics and should provide direct experience with many reactions and concepts. The laboratory is also intended to develop familiarity with experiment design, experimental techniques, and instrumental methods such as chromatography and spectroscopy. Prerequisites: CHEM 201 (This course has a choice of lab sections, see below.)

Laboratory Science

This course stresses a modern, molecular approach to the subject of physical chemistry. The first semester begins with a study of model quantum mechanical systems and culminates in the application of the model systems to atomic and molecular structure and spectra. Selected experiments illustrate these topics. Students analyze their data with particular emphasis on the way in which error in fundamental measurements propagates through to error in final results. Molecular modeling software is used to go beyond consideration of prototypical systems. Prerequisites: Chemistry 141 - 142, Physics 141- 142, and Mathematics 141 142. Strongly recommended: Mathematics 212.
