The fundamentals of chemistry are important across the physical sciences and engineering. Starting with atomic structure and the periodic table, this course moves on to chemical bonding theory, building to the structure of organic molecules. Moving from the molecular level, acid–base theories, phase equilibria and solution chemistry are covered. The properties of ideal and non-ideal gases are then discussed and the energetics of chemical processes completes the course. Examples of quantitative calculations support the course materials.
Laboratory classes introduce important practical techniques, with experiments that support and complement the taught material.
