Chemistry 4
Beginning Chemistry
5 units; 3 hours lecture, 2 hours lab, 4 hours quiz and discussion
Prerequisite: Math 1 with min. grade of C or equivalent (must be qualified to enter Math 2A)
Credit, degree applicable
Transfer CSU, UC*

Introduction to principles of chemistry, modern concepts of atomic structure and periodicity as a basis for the understanding of bonding, formulas, equations and chemical reactions. States of matter, important elements and their compounds, solutions, acid-base theories and reactions, net ionic equations, oxidation-reduction and an introduction to kinetics and chemical equilibrium. Emphasis in lecture on chemical nomenclature and calculations. In the laboratory, emphasis will be on observations, measurements and elementary quantitative experiments with an introduction to qualitative analysis.
Note: Prerequisite to Chem 1A if the student fails to qualify for Chem 1A on the Chemistry Placement Test and if the student has not completed one year of college preparatory chemistry in high school.
