CH1140 - General Chemistry I

This course is designed for students who have previously studied chemistry, either in high school or university.  It is designed to give students a knowledge and understanding of the fundamental chemical concepts which will form the basis for further studies in the field of science. Major topics are: matter - its properties and measurement, atoms and atomic theory, chemical compounds, chemical reactions, introduction to reactions in aqueous solution; gases; thermochemistry; the quantum mechanical model of the atom; periodic properties of the elements; chemical bonding I –basic Concepts; chemical bonding II additional aspects, valence bond theory and molecular orbital theory; liquids, solids and intermolecular forces. Transferable to MUN Chemistry 1050.

Prerequisite(s): At least 65% in high school Chemistry 3202. Students must have a strong background in pre-university chemistry. The main objective of this course is not to re-teach core chemical concepts but to build on them. Students with a weak chemistry background are advised to register for Chemistry 1135.

This course is offered in the following programs:
