Chemistry II for PCD

Chemistry II for PCD - CHM181
Credits:
4
Prerequisites:
In this course, students will continue to examine the fundamental concepts, processes, and calculations of chemistry.   This course approaches chemistry from a health and human body perspective and includes topics in the gas laws, solutions and solubility, acids and bases, biochemical reactions, nomenclature and properties of organic compounds- their nomenclature, structure, properties based on intermolecular forces and reactions. These topics will have a strong health science emphasis and will provide students with a chemistry perspective of health and the human body. The chemistry concepts will continually highlight the connections of chemistry with health, medicine and research areas. Lab work in this course will focus on applying the scientific method to investigations in chemistry, the human body, and health. The purpose of the lab work is to develop investigative and research skills while gaining a better understanding of the theoretical concepts.
