CHEM 120 - College Chemistry I
(3 cr each) CHEM 120 and its companion course CHEM 120L are the first part of a two-semester sequence that presents an overview of fundamental chemical principles for students preparing for a nursing program. Special emphasis is placed on those aspects of chemistry that have connections to physiology, microbiology, pharmacology, and medicine. Topics include measurements and units, nuclear chemistry, atomic and molecular structure, periodic properties of the elements, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, solutions, chemical reactivity, acids and bases, thermochemistry, properties of gases, and an introduction to organic chemistry. This course, along with CHEM 120L , CHEM 122 , and CHEM 122L , fulfills the Core Curriculum Laboratory Sciences requirement. Corequisite: It is recommended, but not required, that CHEM 120L be taken concurrently.
