CHEM 230 - Physical Chemical Principles and Applications
Section: 100
Term: SP 2009
Subject: Chemistry (CHEM)
Department: LSA Chemistry
Requirements & Distribution:
Credit Exclusions:
No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in CHEM 260.
Advisory Prerequisites:
CHEM 215/216. Students who plan to continue beyond a fourth term in Chemistry would typically enroll in CHEM 260/241/242 instead of CHEM 230; credit will not be given for both of these courses.
Other Course Info:
F, W, Sp.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

Fourth term in chemistry for science concentrators and pre-professional students, completing the two-year chemistry sequence required by, for example, the medical, dental, and engineering programs. Students who plan to continue beyond a fourth term in chemistry would typically enroll in CHEM 260/241/242 instead of CHEM 230; credit will not be given for both of these courses. In CHEM 230, students will be introduced to the physical principles underlying some of the major topics of inorganic and analytical chemistry. We will study the liquid and solid states of matter, phase transitions, solutions, electrochemistry, coordination complexes, spectroscopy, and the principles of thermodynamics that explain observed chemical behavior. These topics will be treated from the viewpoint of the experimental scientist, with an emphasis on the application of physical chemical principles to chemical behavior in a broad spectrum of settings. CHEM 230 will meet three times each week in two-hour lecture sections with senior faculty and once a week in small 2-hour discussion classes led by graduate student instructors. Lecturer and GSIs will have scheduled office hours for after class help, and computerized study aids will be available to all students. Course grades will be determined from hour examinations and a final examination.
