Physical Chemistry without Previous Chem Experience

  1. Oct 9, 2012 #1
    Is it a good idea to take P Chem without taking any chemistry at college level? My highschool had a strong chemistry program (we did organic in high school) but I havent done any Chemistry in college. I am currently taking Quantum Mech 2, and will be taking Thermal Physics and Condensed Matter Physics next semester. Should I be able to handle the standard senior/junior level P Chem sequence?

    I am doing it because of my interest in thermodynamics and desire to see how the quantum world looks from the chemists' point of view.

    Any advice is appreciated.
