The first semester of a two-semester sequence with laboratory intended for science,
engineering, and pre-professional majors. It includes a detailed study of atomic
and molecular structures, stoichiometric calculations, solutions, thermochemistry,
gas laws, physical states, atomic electron orbital theory, and chemical bonding.
The course also includes laboratory study of these concepts, experimental chemistry
techniques, and the analysis and interpretation of experimental findings.
