Laboratory and computer-based experiments in chemical formulas, atomic structure, bonding, qualitative analysis, solutions, quantitative analysis of acids and bases, and calorimetry. First half of a two semester sequence for students interested in a chemistry or closely related career. This course is open to 17CHEMBS, 17CHEMBA, 14EFY-14CHEI, 11BIOCHBS, 11LSFY-11BCHI and 17MARSCBS-17MARSCCHM majors and to students with departmental approval. Students cannot receive credit for both CH 102 and CH 104.

The course is primarily designed for chemistry majors, but the intent has been to allow chemical engineering majors and biochemistry majors, along with students from other closely related disciplines, to participate.  With the advent of the Life Science First Year program, incoming students intending to major in Biochemistry are now designated 11LSFY-11BCHI.  This revision adds this designation to the list of majors for which the course is open in the course description and in the Requisites and Scheduling section of the GEP information.

No new resources are required for this course. The department currently offers specially designated sections of CH 102 (see part B above) into which chemistry majors are advised to enroll. Addition
of CH 104 would be concomitant with the elimination of a corresponding number of sections of CH 102.
