CHM 143 General Chemistry II
Credit Hours: 5
Prerequisite: Reading: Grade of C or better in RDG 091 or LTC 099, an ACT Reading score of 18 or above, or an appropriate placement score. Math: Grade of C or better in MTH 112 or appropriate math placement. Grade of C or better in CHM 142

Second course in a two-semester sequence of General Chemistry courses. The goal of this course is to provide the students with a broad overview of the principles of chemistry and to continue the introduction to many basic concepts of chemistry such as chemical kinetics; chemical equilibrium; Entropy and Free Energy; electrochemistry and redox reactions; orbital and spectroscopy; order and symmetry in condensed phases; chemistry of the main group and transition elements; and nuclear chemistry. Students will be exposed to the practical aspects of chemistry as they relate to the health sciences, industry, and the environment. Computer software is available to students to help them learn molecular modeling and graphing. The experiments of the accompanying lab are closely related to the course material and they will emphasize both qualitative and quantitative analysis.
