Department of Chemistry 1st Semester / Academic Year CM110 / 05107 General Chemistry 1 Lecture

Instructor: Leandro Rama Ramboyong E-mail address: carpediem17ph@yahoo.com Contact Number: 0932-8845815 Type of Course: Major Day / Time / Room: MWF / 1011 AM / CS203 Consultation Hours: M, 45 PM / TTh, 910 AM Office: 2nd Flr., Chemistry Faculty Rm., CS Bldg. Course Description: This is a 3-unit course designed to provide engineering students with a working knowledge of the basic concepts and mathematical principles of general chemistry to bring in interesting and significant applications in their specialized studies as well as in their daily lives. Co-requisite: General Chemistry 1 Laboratory At the end of the course, the students must: 1. Be able to differentiate classical and quantum mechanical models of the atom; 2. Gain a deeper understanding of the periodicity of elements and of the chemical bonds that hold atoms together; 3. Be able to use systematic procedures of writing names and formulas of compounds; 4. Be able to examine the quantitative nature of chemical formulas and reactions; 5. Understand the physical properties of gases and learn what these properties teach them about the behavior of molecules; and 6. Identify the different concentration expressions and colligative properties of solutions.

Objectives / Values:

Teaching Methods / Strategies: Lecture, hand-outs, problem sets, quizzes and examinations, class discussions, and journal reading assignments References:

Course Assessment / Evaluation / Grading System: The minimum requirement for a passing grade is 70%, coming from: Problem Sets (Assignments and Seatworks, minimum of 4) 15% Long Tests and Quizzes 15% Preliminary Exam 20% Midterm Exam 20% Final Exam 20% Class Participation (Attendance, Notebook, and Recitation) 10% Aside from academic deficiency, other grounds for a failing grade are: 1. Cheating during examinations (This will not be tolerated. The Universitys policy on cheating and other forms of academic fraud will be strictly enforced. All reports and exams must solely be the students work); 2. More than 9 absences without a valid excuse; and 3. Failure to take the final examination with no valid excuse.

Aqueous solutions The general properties Factors affecting solubility Ways of expressing concentrations % Mass and Volume Molarity Molality Colligative properties Lowering the vapor pressure Boiling-point elevation Freezing-point depression Osmotic pressure Class Policies and Requirements: 1. No erasures, wipe-out, and liquid erasers are allowed in the lecture notebook or exams. 2. Plagiarism is not allowed.
3. Lecture hours may be extended depending on topic/s for discussion.

No make-up class due to absence. 4. All problem sets are due on the date and time scheduled for submission. For valid reasons, a grade penalty of 20% is incurred.
5. Each student is responsible for maintaining an e-mail account during

the term. Lecture notes, other reading material assignments, and most communications will be coursed through this account. Students are expected to read resource materials before class. Discussions are encouraged during lecture hours. 6. Problem sets are given to encourage discussion in small groups that leads to interchange of ideas. Interaction, therefore, is strongly encouraged in this setting. The student, however, is ultimately responsible for the output.
