CHEM 109L General, Organic, and Biochemistry I Laboratory 1 sem. hr.
This lab experience is designed to complement CHEM 109 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, determination of densities of materials; basic gravimetric analysis; volumetric analysis (acid-base titrations, etc…); separation of mixtures; 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 in the fall and spring semesters and during summer I every year.
