One-semester survey of principles and concepts of general chemistry, topics covered include bonding, mole ratios, equilibrium, and nuclear chemistry. May not be taken for credit concurrently with, or following receipt of, credit for CHEM 025, CHEM 031, or CHEM 035.
See comment for CHEM 023 A; Cross listed with CHEM 025 B; Open to degree and CDE students
CHEM 023 is an exploration of the central concepts of General Chemistry. A one-semester, 4-credit survey course involving both a lecture and a laboratory component, CHEM 023 touches on all of the topics normally covered in two-semester General Chemistry courses (such as CHEM 031/032). The course is able to compact these concepts into a smaller time package by limiting the depth of immersion in each area. Topics covered in CHEM 023 include Measurement & Problem Solving, Matter & Energy, Atomic Elements & Electron Structure, Chemical Bonding in Molecules & Compounds, Chemical Composition & Reaction Balancing, Molar Quantities and Solution Concentration, Behavior of Gases, Intermolecular Forces, Acids/Bases, & Chemical Equilibrium. Students should have a general understanding of these topics and their interrelatedness by the end of the course.
This course combines a lecture format worth 80% and a lab component worth 20% of the total. In addition to attending lecture, students should expect to spend 3-4 hours per week in consistent study and problem-solving. Solving recommended problems is the best way to do this.
Students will be evaluated with three mid-term exams, a final exam, and an online (BlackBoard) quiz average, as well as a lab component of the course.
