CHEM107 - General Chemistry I

This is a more thorough study of basic principles than CHEM 101. Topics include atoms, molecules, ions, chemical formulas, equations, stoichiometry, gases, electronic structure of atoms, periodic table, bonding, physical properties, phase changes, and thermochemistry. Laboratory experiments are hands-on, wet-lab, performed in a traditional chemistry lab under supervision of a chemistry professor. Substantial outside preparation for the laboratories is required. CHEM 107 fulfills the SUNY General Education Natural Sciences requirement. A student may only apply credit earned in CHEM 101 or CHEM 107 toward degree requirements. PREREQUISITES: MATH 120 and college prep chemistry or CHEM 101; RDNG 099 if required by placement testing; ENGL 099 or prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ESL 120, 121, and 122 (or prior completion of ESL 103) if required by placement testing. 4 Cr. (3 Lec. 2 Lab.) Fall semester.
