CHEM 111-01 Chemistry in the Kitchen
Instructor: Christine O'Neill
Course Description:
Do you know how much chemistry takes place in your kitchen? Why are some recipes altered for cooking at high altitudes? Can you substitute baking soda for baking powder in a recipe? This course will provide answers to these questions, by introducing you to chemical concepts such as: thermochemistry, electromagnetic radiation, chemical bonding, acid and bases, and intermolecular forces. These concepts will be illustrated by examining the foods you eat and the cooking methods used to prepare them. In the chemistry laboratory, the students will continue their study of these concepts and their applications.

How do we extract our analyte from the matrix? How much sample must be extracted in order to obtain a measurable result? How do we measure what's present? and in the critical evaluation of experimental results (How much confidence do we have that our results are representative of the system under study?). Prerequisite: 132 or 141.
