CHEM 130 - Chemical Principles I


Chemical Principles I is a continuation and expansion of the topics introduced in CHEM 129 - Basic Principles of Chemistry . CHEM 130 quickly reviews the material covered in CHEM 129 - Basic Principles of Chemistry  and then expands upon this base to cover the fundamental concepts of chemistry. Topics beyond those in CHEM 129 - Basic Principles of Chemistry  include thermodynamics (enthalpy, entropy and the Gibbs energy), kinetics, basic equilibrium, quantum mechanics and simple approaches to bonding (Lewis dot structures and VSPER theory). The exceptionally well prepared student can begin his or her Truman chemistry experience in CHEM 130 based on a sufficiently strong high school background in chemistry and mathematics and his or her score on the Mathematics Placement Exam. Note that this course is the first course in the two semester sequence required by most professional schools.

Prerequisites: Either: 1) completion of the Elementary Functions Essential Skill requirement (based upon sufficiently strong high school background and score on the Mathematics Placement Exam) AND completion of any previous high school or college chemistry course with a grade of C or better; OR 2) completion of CHEM 129 - Basic Principles of Chemistry  with a grade of C or better.
Credits: 4
NOTE:
* Honors Scholar Course for students whose majors do not require CHEM 130, or who choose not to use it to fulfill major requirements.
** This course fulfills the Scientific: Physical Science Mode of Inquiry of the Liberal Studies Program.
*** This course counts toward the 63-credit Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) graduation requirement.
**** The Science Lab Fee applies to this course.
