This is a one-semester introductory college level course designed for non-science majors who have had a high school course in chemistry. Objectives are to provide students with an understanding of basic chemical principles and to show how these are applied in so many different and practical applications, from air-bags to the cancer treatment material cis-platinum. Major topics include: measurements, matter, atomic theory and the Periodic Table, chemical bonding, stoichiometry and chemical reactions, properties of aqueous solutions, states of matter (solids, liquids and gases), and acid-base chemistry. Additional topics include: chemical equilibrium, thermochemistry, reaction rates, and nuclear chemistry. Students should gain confidence in applying scientific reasoning concepts to situations beyond the course. 3 hrs. lec., 1 hr. rec.
