CHEM 2031 - General Chemistry I


This is the first of a two semester sequence designed for students pursuing a degree in science or a health related field. Chem 2031 is designed for students who have recently completed high school chemistry or Chem 1000 with a C- or better. Note: Non- science majors should review the course description for Chem 1474 as an alternative, non-majors science CU Denver Undergraduate Core course, with lab credit. Topics covered include the classification of matter, the Metric system, dimensional analysis, atomic theory and the structure of atoms, periodic relationships, empirical formulas, thermochemistry, gas laws and the kinetic molecular theory, compounds and nomenclature of inorganic compounds, the mole, balancing equations, stoichiometry, types of chemical reactions, solution stoichiometry and dilutions, electron configurations, chemical bonding, Lewis Dot Theory, Valence Shell Electron Pair repulsion Theory, and other topics as time allows. This course is a prerequisite or co-requisite for General Chemistry 1 Lab, Chem 2038. No co-credit with CHEM 2081. Note: a beginning course for science majors, medical technologists, pre-medical and pre-dental students. It is strongly recommended that students have taken CHEM 1000 and MATH 1110 or their high school equivalents to be adequately prepared to succeed in this course. Max hours: 3 Credits. GT: Course is approved by the Colorado Dept of Higher Education for statewide guaranteed transfer, GT-SC2. Semester Hours: 3 to 3
