First Year Courses

APSC131 Chemistry and Materials

Description

This course combines fundamentals of chemistry and uses these fundamentals to gain an understanding of why materials have the characteristics they do. Areas of study are: gases and their behaviour; three states of matter and their properties; water and aqueous solutions; chemical bonding; quantum mechanics and atomic structure; solids; thermodynamic processes and thermo chemistry; and introduction to materials science.

CHEM112 General Chemistry

Description

A survey of modern chemistry: molecular structure, bonding, phases of matter, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, equilibrium, kinetics, polymers, organic and biochemistry. Using information technology, laboratories and formulation of problem-solving strategies, students will develop an appreciation for the relevance of chemistry to the solution of modern-day societal challenges.

Laboratory Supplies

The purchase of laboratory supplies is applicable to this course. Laboratory supplies, which could include goggles, lab coat, notebook, and lab manual are available through Science Stores (cash and debit only) during the first week of class. Proper laboratory supplies are required for students attending labs.

Lab Safety

In order to attend labs, all CHEM112 students are required to complete Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and Safety Training.  Training sessions are arranged specifically for CHEM112 students at the beginning of term.

Lab Exemption

Are you retaking this course and have already completed all the labs? If so you may qualify for a lab exemption. If you would like to request a lab exemption, email ugadm@chem.queensu.ca and include your full name, student number, course, year and term taken. Please note that you must have successfully completed all labs from the course within the last 3 years with a lab mark of at least 65% for an exemption to be granted. Once the exemption is entered it will be confirmed by email and will appear on onQ. Registration in SOLUS will remain unchanged as you will still be required to attend tutorials.
