CHEM 102L Principles of Chemistry Lab II 1 sem. hr.
This lab experience is designed to compliment CHEM 102 lecture. A strong focus is placed on proper methods for measuring 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, thin-layer chromatography of Pharmaceuticals; colligative properties of solutions; chemical kinetics; chemical equilibrium; electrochemistry; more complex volumetric analysis; and qualitative chemical analysis. For most experiments, students work independently, but teamwork is also encouraged in certain situations. A greater emphasis is placed on exploratory and investigative science during this course. This lab is offered only in the spring semester every year. One 3-hour lab period per week.
