CHEM 221 Physical Chemistry I, Thermodynamics and Kinetics
An introduction to physical chemistry consisting of fundamentals of chemical thermodynamics, chemical and physical equilibrium, and chemical kinetics presented using a calculus-based mathematical treatment.
Three lectures per week.
An introduction to certain aspects of analytical inorganic chemistry. Analytical topics include the general subject of chemical equilibrium in solution, and the classical methods of chemical analysis. Inorganic topics include descriptive inorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry, and the solid state.
Prerequisite(s): CHEM 051 Chemical Principles and CHEM 051L Chemical Principles Laboratory with grades of "C-" or better.
An introduction to calculus of a single variable. Topics include limits, continuity, differentiation, and beginning integration with applications. Assignments are given that help build proficiency in the use of a computer algebra system.
Prerequisite(s): Appropriate placement score or grade of "C" or better in MATH 050 Pre-Calculus.
(Normally offered each semester.)
