This course is a continuation of introductory chemistry and includes topics such as moles, states of matter, behaviors of gases, solutions, reaction rates, chemical equilibriums, solubility, acids and bases, oxidation-reduction reactions, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. This course has few mathematical computations and includes several virtual lab demonstrations. This is the second half in a two-part General Chemistry series (CHEM 041 and CHEM 043).

This course is designed to challenge students by having them apply concepts in a way they may need in the real world. As such, it has a built-in KSA model that develops college and career readinessKnowledge: Chemistry, Skill: Critical ThinkingProblem Solving, and Attribute: Diligence.
