1 CHEMISTRY 1000 B General Chemistry I Spring 2011 Paul Hazendonk

2 Welcome to Chemistry 1000 You will need: Chemistry, Canadian Edition by J. Olmsted, G. Williams, R.C. Burk Lab Manual (University Bookstore) Lab Deposit Token (University Bookstore) Lab Coat (University Bookstore) Safety Glasses (University Bookstore or CBC Club) Calculator (WITHOUT wireless communication capability; required for labs and tests; recommended that you bring to lecture as well) Websites you’ll need to access: (Class Website) (Website for online homework; account costs $19.99US) (WebCT Login to track lab marks)

3 Contact Information If you have any questions outside of class/lab, you can reach me: Office E852 – Open door policy email ( What’s Chemistry 1000 about? CHEM 1000 is the first half of a full year course in general chemistry. The second half of the course, CHEM 2000, should ideally be taken within one year of completing CHEM 1000. The goal of these courses is to introduce you to university-level chemistry and to give you an appreciation for the diversity of the field. If you plan to take Organic Chemistry (CHEM 2500), it’s best to take CHEM 1000 and MATH 1560 this term and CHEM 2000 next term. In order to succeed in Chemistry 1000, you must have completed: Grade 12 Chemistry or equivalent (typically CHEM 30) Grade 12 Mathematics or equivalent (typically PURE MATH 30)

4 Pre-Requisite Knowledge Chemistry knowledge/skills expected of students entering Chemistry 1000: Stoichiometry (the mole, molar masses, limiting reagents, balancing equations, etc.) Solution chemistry (dilutions, calculating concentration, etc.) Equilibrium, equilibrium constants and Le Châtelier’s principle Acid-Base chemistry (simple reactions, calculating pH) Gases (ideal gas law) Thermodynamics (enthalpy, exothermic/endothermic reactions) Subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons) Mathematical knowledge/skills expected of students entering Chemistry 1000: Algebra: rearranging equations (including those with fractions and/or logarithms) Geometry: trigonometry (including Pythagorean theorem), graphically adding and subtracting functions such as waves Use of units and significant figures

5 Grade Composition Dates Method 1 Method 2 LaboratoryWayne25% AssignmentsSusan 10% Midterm Tests (90 minutes each) Wednesdays at 6:30-8:00pm: February 16 th and March 23 rd 30% (2 @ 15% each) 0% Final Exam Wednesday April. 20 th at 9:00 am (to be confirmed by Registrar’s Office) 35%65% Total100% YOU MUST PASS BOTH THE LAB (12.5/25) AND LECTURE (37.5/75) PORTIONS OF THE COURSE SEPARATELY IN ORDER TO RECEIVE ANY GRADE OTHER THAN ‘F’.
