COMP 003 : Physical Science Lecture-Laboratory
The basic principles of chemistry and of physics are covered in the course. Emphasis is placed on understanding these concepts and how they can be used to relate to every day phenomena. The inorganic and organic aspects of matter, the laws that govern their actions and the formulas that predict the activities of molecules comprise some of the information on basic concepts in chemistry. The laws of physics that govern the solid, liquid and gaseous states of matter are explored. Lecture topics include the foundations of science, principles/concepts/laws of motion, heat and temperature, energy, sound, light, atomic structure, organic and inorganic chemistry. Laboratory exercises include laboratory safety, measurements, law of pendulum, spectrophotometry, identification and physical property determination of substances and empirical formula determination of compounds.
