General Chemistry I builds on basic chemistry concepts from high school. Topics include gases; thermochemistry; atomic structure; periodic properties; chemical bonding including valence bond theory; hybridization and introduction to molecular orbital theory; properties of liquids and solids.
Lectures: four hours per week
Laboratory: Three hours per week
Tutorial
Prerequisite: Chemistry 1010 with a grade of at least 60 per cent or high school Chemistry 3202 with a grade of at least 65 per cent. It is also recommended that students have successfully completed high school Mathematics 3200 or 3201.

Chemistry 1051
General Chemistry II builds on Chemistry 1050 topics and on basic chemistry concepts from high school. Topics include solutions, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, equilibria involving acids and bases including polyprotic acids, buffers, acid-base indicators, titration curves, solubility and complex ion equilibrium, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry.
Lectures: Three hours per week
Laboratories: Three hours per week
Tutorial:
Prerequisite: Chemistry 1050

Notes:

  1. Attendance in laboratories is required. Failure to attend may result in a failing grade or deregistration from the course.
  2. Credit may be obtained for only one of Chemistry 1010 and 1200 (Grenfell Campus)
  3. Students who plan to transfer to a program at another university are advised that they may not receive transfer credit for Chemistry 1010.
  4. Credit may be obtained for only one of 1011, 1051 and Chemistry 1001 (Grenfell Campus).
