Official course description: Chemistry 116 is the second semester of a two semester course of study in the fundamental principles of chemistry. The course is appropriate for students who: 1) want a basic knowledge of one of the physical sciences, 2) need to satisfy GEC objective #2B (including the lab requirement), 3) need to satisfy a requirement and/or prerequisite in their major, or 4) intend to enroll in a professional school or program that requires additional study in chemistry (e.g., medicine or pharmacy). The objectives of this course are to present the fundamental principles of chemistry upon which subsequent course work is built. Basic topics include, but are not limited to, properties of solutions, kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acid-base and salt equilibria, coordination compounds, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Laboratory experiments are designed to support the lecture topics.
