ISBN 0-940139-18-9, 190 pages, paper
This laboratory manual is designed to compliment a one semester college level course in General Chemistry. The laboratory exercises are intended to reinforce course content and teach basic laboratory procedures to students who are taking chemistry course work for personal interest or vocational purposes.
Each laboratory exercise contains a clear and concise explanation of concept, experimental procedures, calculations and reporting procedures. Included are pre-study guide forms and experiment report forms which when completed by the student may be removed from the manual and submitted to the instructor for evaluation.
Experiments cover physical and chemical changes, densities of solids and liquids, water of hydration, a sequence of chemical reactions, the formation of oxides, acids and bases, behavior of families in the periodic table, gases - Charles’ Law, molecular weights of volatile liquids, classes of chemical reactions, classification of substances, displacement reactions, vapor pressure, etc.
