CHE 104 General Chemistry II

71/2 hours: 3 hours lecture, 11/2 hours recitation, 3 hours laboratory 

This is the second half of beginning chemistry. It builds on the basic properties and reactions of the elements and the compounds learned in the first semester of general chemistry and ends with an introduction to organic chemistry. The laboratory stresses principles of qualitative and semi-quantitative experimentation and fosters competence in the skills needed to work safely and effectively in a scientific laboratory. This course is designed for students with a science background and for Forensic Science and Fire Science majors. Regents level high school chemistry is desired.




CHE 103, or an average grade of 2.0 or better in CHE 101-CHE 102 or the equivalent, and completion of MAT 104 or MAT 105 or equivalent


This course has a $25.00 material fee. This course satisfies the Required Core: Life and Physical Sciences area or the Flexible Core: Scientific World area of the Gen Ed Program.
