CHEM 141
Fall 2024
Section: 01   02  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Health Studies

CHEM 141 is the first half of a standard introductory course in general chemistry, intended for science majors and appropriate for premedical studies. Proficiency in algebra is required. Prior completion of a high school chemistry course is typical, but not required. Students with advanced academic preparation in high school (especially AP/IB/A-Level CHEM) will not be granted credit if they enroll in this course and should instead take CHEM143. The topics covered will include measurement and dimensional analysis; atomic structure; electronic structure; formula calculations and the mole; stoichiometry; solutions and aqueous reactions, part 1; heat and enthalpy; structure and bonding; and states of matter. The full-year course is completed with CHEM 142.
