Topics You Should Know When Entering into Chemistry 123/128

(These are the topics you should know if you will skip Chemistry 122 and enter directly into Chemistry 123 or 128. Approximately 75-80% of all Carleton students skip Chemistry 122 and enter directly into Chemistry 123 or 128)

Commonly people wonder specifically about:

The following list of topics you should feel fairly comfortable with. You can review all of these topics in any introductory text. Several of the topics you should be able to do without the help of a text after reviewing your chemistry (such as calculating moles given a periodic table, or calculating a molecular weight and balancing a chemical equation). Other topics you might need to review or relearn with a text (such as Dalton's law of Partial Pressure). The more difficult topics that we would expect you would need to revisit while taking 123/128 are marked with an asterisk. On each of these topics you should ask yourself: Could I quickly review this material and feel comfortable using it when needed?
