**CHE 260:
CONCEPTS OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY**

**This one-semester course is designed to better prepare the student who is
planning to take the Physical Chemistry course sequence (CHE 300/CHE 301). It
will encompass the chemistry, physics and mathematics concepts and skills
required for understanding the theoretical foundations of classical
thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics and statistical
thermodynamics. Emphasis will be placed on the application of mathematical
principles in solving physico-chemical problems. Students majoring or minoring in Chemistry may not apply credit for this course toward meeting
their chemistry requirements.
