CHEM 101L Principles of Chemistry Lab I 1 sem. hr.
This lab experience is designed to compliment CHEM 101 lecture. A strong focus is placed on proper methods for collecting data (mass, volume, length, etc...), proper use of significant figures; basic statistical methods; graphing and data presentation; laboratory safety and proper scientific report writing. Experiments include, but are not limited to, determination of densities of materials; gravimetric analysis; volumetric analysis (acid-base titrations, etc...); quantitative analysis using spectrophotometry; calorimetry and other labs as time permits. For most experiments, students work independently, but teamwork is also encouraged in certain situations. This lab is offered only in the fall semester every year. One 3-hour lab period per week.
