1 Chemistry 114, SPRING 2004 LECTURE HOURS: MWF 10:40--11:30 LOCATION PSH-150 INSTRUCTORS : Prof. C. Austen Angell Prof. Jenny L. Green TEXT: Chemistry – The Central Science (9 th Edition), Brown, LeMay & Bursten Welcome to Chemistry 114! Most students find chemistry is a bit difficult. It's mostly the way it asks us to think about bricks, plastics, and laptop computers in terms of the behavior of particles (electrons and protons, atoms and molecules) which are too small to be properly conceptualized. But these tiny particles in their billions of billions are responsible for the fact that matter and energy obey natural laws ("laws of nature"). Without laws of nature to rely on, an engineer couldn't design anything. The laws of nature are laws that can be proven by anybody who does the measurements properly. These laws take the form of simple but precise mathematical relations between measurable quantities, like pressure and volume, composition and temperature, that are found to hold true whenever the measurements are performed under the same conditions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
