This course studies fundamental principles and theories of chemistry with special emphasis on calculations of solution chemistry, stoichiometry, chemical equilibrium and oxidation-reduction; includes discussion of quantum mechanical model of the atom, kinetic-molecular theory, and periodic table. Lab is designed to develop quantitative relationships through experiments, and to introduce inorganic preparative procedures and computer analysis of data. Field trips may be required.
