Chemistry 141 - General Chemistry I

In Chemistry 141, we will build on the knowledge that you have acquired from Chemistry 120: Prep for General Chemistry, including, but not limited to, problems in stoichiometry, solution concentration, gas laws, and nomenclature of common inorganic compounds and writing their formulas. We will continue to use basic laboratory equipment such as balances, burettes, pipettes, graduated cylinders, etc., and introduce basic data acquisition devices. We will spend the first four weeks of the course reviewing basic material and deepening that knowledge. Following this, new topics will be introduced.


The course consists of three hours of lecture instruction and six hours of laboratory per week. Outside of class, please plan to spend, on average, two hours per lecture hour and one hour per lab hour per week additional study time.
