Chemistry I for PCD

Chemistry I for PCD - CHM180

In Chemistry for Health Sciences, students will learn the fundamentals of chemistry with real life examples and apply them in processes and applications that relate to health care fields. The concepts studied will include the study of matter and chemical bonding, quantities in chemical reactions, solutions and solubility, acids and bases. In this course, students will examine the fundamental concepts, procedures, and calculations of chemistry.  Course work will include examples and problems that relate to health and the human body. Topics in this course include physical and chemical properties of matter, chemical bonding, nomenclature, chemical quantities, chemical reactions, and stoichiometry.

Laboratory investigations in this course will focus on safety, measurement, and common practices and procedures.  The purpose of the lab work is to develop practical skills while gaining a better understanding of the theoretical concepts and calculations.
