CHM 145 L - General Chemistry I Laboratory

Laboratory experiments to emphasize the empirical basis for the principles discussed in lecture and the proper gathering and interpretation of experimental data.

Prerequisite- Corequisite
Corequisite:  CHM 145 General Chemistry I

Credits: 0
3 Laboratory Hours
Course Profile
Learning Outcomes of the Course:

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

1.  Work efficiently in a laboratory setting because they will know how to make reagents; dilute solutions; physically separate phases; and calculate appropriate amounts of reagents to control chemical reactions.
2.  Understand measuring masses, volumes and physical parameters such as pressure to determine quantities of a variety of variables either dependent or independent.
3.  Use many diversified analytical techniques (tritration, precipitation, calorimetry, and others) to determine the identity or quantity of a chemical component.
4.  Employ inductive as well as deductive reasoning to report the chemical structure or amount of an unknown using a multitude of chemical reactions such as acid-base chemistry.
5.  Understand the nature of atoms, elements and compounds through spectroscopy; periodic table reactivity; chemical bonding; solution interactions; and molecular geometry.
