# 5.112 Principles of Chemical Science

Introduction to chemistry for students with an unusually strong background in chemistry. Knowledge of calculus equivalent to 18.01 is recommended. Emphasis on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. Applications of basic principles to problems in metal coordination chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological chemistry.

This class has no prerequisites.

5.112 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by R. Schrock and S. Ceyer.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 32-123.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Principles of Chemical Science site or on the 5.112 Stellar site.

# 8.01 Physics I

Introduces classical mechanics. Space and time: straight-line kinematics; motion in a plane; forces and static equilibrium; particle dynamics, with force and conservation of momentum; relative inertial frames and non-inertial force; work, potential energy and conservation of energy; kinetic theory and the ideal gas; rigid bodies and rotational dynamics; vibrational motion; conservation of angular momentum; central force motions; fluid mechanics. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning) format which features students working in groups of three, discussing concepts, solving problems, and doing table-top experiments with the aid of computer data acquisition and analysis.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.01 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by D. Chakrabarty and P. Dourmashkin.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

You can find more information at the Physics 8.01 - Classical Mechanics Fall 2013 site or on the 8.01 Stellar site.

# 18.02 Calculus

Calculus of several variables. Vector algebra in 3-space, determinants, matrices. Vector-valued functions of one variable, space motion. Scalar functions of several variables: partial differentiation, gradient, optimization techniques. Double integrals and line integrals in the plane; exact differentials and conservative fields; Green's theorem and applications, triple integrals, line and surface integrals in space, Divergence theorem, Stokes' theorem; applications.

This class has no prerequisites.

18.02 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by J. Bush.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 54-100.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
