CHEM131. Introduction to General Chemistry

Chemistry 131 is an introductory general chemistry course intended for students who have little or no chemistry background. This course is specifically designed to prepare science majors for CHEM 132-General Chemistry I. It is both a conceptual and mathematical course that covers atomic and molecular structure, the periodic table, chemical systematic naming schemes, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, gasses, solutions, acid/bases, oxidation/reduction, and an introduction to chemical equilibrium and nuclear chemistry. This course does not count in the chemistry major or minor but along with CHEM 110 does satisfy the General Education science requirement. Prerequisite: Two years of high school algebra and Math ACT ≥ 20 or completion of MATH 131. Credit, 3 hours.
