This course will introduce the student to the basic vocabulary used in different branches of chemistry, and to major concepts in the field (e.g stoichiometry, thermochemistry, …) with emphasis on problem solving. The course topics include: General chemistry concepts. Thermo-chemistry, bonding, solid-state structures, fundamentals of organic chemistry including polymers. solution chemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Use of computers for data acquisition and multimedia resources. Introduction to atomic theory, chemical reactions, bonding, stoichiometry, nomenclature, gas laws, colligate properties, colloids and solutions. Oxidation-reduction reactions, kinetics. Acid and base equilibria, buffers, transition elements, solubility, complex ions, hybridization. Laboratory study of the chemical properties and semi-micro qualitative analysis of the representative group elements of the periodic table.
