This course is intended to cover General Chemistry concepts and principles in depth. The course is divided into four main areas: the atom and subatomic particles, forces of attraction between and within molecules, the mole concept of atoms and molecules and basic chemical reactions. The major topics that will be covered in this course include relative masses of atoms and molecules, atomic structure, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry, chemical energetics and nuclear reactions. There will be a stronger emphasis on a quantitative description of chemical phenomena. Moreover, the course assumes that students have had a strong exposure to high school chemistry. Students are encouraged to review the concepts of atomic structure, ions, electronic configurations of atoms and ions, ionic and covalent bonding, mole concept for atoms and molecules, chemical equations and stoichiometry.
