CHEM 122 - General Chemistry I Laboratory [GEKN]
The laboratory class to accompany CHEM 121 . Students learn basic techniques employed in a chemistry laboratory, including use of analytical balances, quantitative glassware, spectrophotometry and computers for data acquisition and analysis. CHEM 121 must be taken concurrently to satisfy four credits of the Knowledge of the Disciplines - Natural Science portion of the General Education program.

General Chemistry I Laboratory and its required companion laboratory course are the first half of a two-semester introductory chemistry sequence aimed at students who will pursue science-related majors. The courses introduce some of the fundamental concepts in the chemical sciences, such as atomic structure and bonding, stoichiometry, the periodic table, chemical reactivity and thermochemistry. In the laboratory portion of the course, students are exposed to basic techniques such as proper use of glassware, observations, simple syntheses, colorimetry, and titration. In addition, students are shown how mathematical models and error analysis can be used to analyze data and draw conclusions. The goal of the courses is to introduce the field of chemistry, its fundamental concepts and theories and its basic experimental techniques to students who have an interest in science.
