This is the first semester course in the sequence, taught by Dr. Liliya Vugmeyster.

This course is a quantitative study of the principles of thermodynamics, kinetic molecular theory of gases, and chemical kinetics. Applications to solutions, phase equilibria, chemical reactions and transport properties are explored. A brief introduction to quantum mechanics and spectroscopy is made.

The prerequisites for this course are CHEM A106 with a minimum grade of C and CHEM A106L with a minimum grade of C and MATH A202 with a minimum grade of C and PHYS A212 with a minimum grade of C and PHYS A212L with a minimum grade of C. These prerequisites are strictly enforced. MATH A302 is strongly recommended.

CHEM A333L is the laboratory component of this course but is either taken concurrently with CHEM A332 or after CHEM A332 is completed.
