CHEM 2800 [0.5 credit]

Foundations for Environmental Chemistry

A basis of chemistry needed to understand the environment: composition of the atmosphere and natural waters; equilibrium; surface properties; kinetics and spectroscopy; physical and chemical properties of chemicals in the environment. This is a limited enrolment course; therefore top priority will be given to students registered in the Environmental Science program.
Students in the B.Sc. program with CHEM 2203 or CHEM 2207 will only be able to use CHEM 2800 in the free elective category, except for students in the Environmental Science program, who may include CHEM 2203 or CHEM 2207 in the Approved Science Course category while maintaining CHEM 2800 as a mandatory course requirement.
Prerequisites: CHEM 1000 or CHEM 1101, and MATH 1007 or equivalents.
Lectures three hours a week, laboratory three hours a week.
