# 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.

# 18.01A Calculus

Six-week review of one-variable calculus, emphasizing material not on the high-school AB syllabus: integration techniques and applications, improper integrals, infinite series, applications to other topics, such as probability and statistics, as time permits. Prerequisites: one year of high-school calculus or the equivalent, with a score of 5 on the AB Calculus test (or the AB portion of the BC test, or an equivalent score on a standard international exam), or equivalent college transfer credit, or a passing grade on the first half of the 18.01 advanced standing exam.

This class has no prerequisites.

18.01A will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by D. Maulik.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in E25-111.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
