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