At the end of the course, the learner should be able to:
- Solve simple problems on kinetics, kinematics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies
- Derive various scientific formulae for gravitation, elasticity, momentum, circular motion and energy
- Apply physical concepts in solving multidisciplinary problems

Inorganic Chemistry I is concerned with understanding of the structure of the atom, electronic configuration, bonding and hybridization of orbitals. It also seeks to explore the early theories of atomic structure, periodic table trends, redox/ acid & base reactions among others. It is an introductory course aimed to give a foundational understanding to scientific students about chemistry.
Course Learning Outcomes
1. To differentiate the different types of bonding and their applications in matter.
2. To understand the AufBau and Pauli's exclusion principles and their application in electronic configuration of different atoms
3. To differentiate between acid/ base reactions and redox reactions.
4. To apply atomic knowledge in nuclear reactions.
Course Learning Objectives
1. Write electron arrangement of elements in the periodic table
2. Explain the different kinds of chemical bonding in compounds
3. Predict the chemical behavior of elements and compounds
4. Describe the different types of chemical reactions in aqueous solutions
