CHEM 112 - General Chemistry Laboratory I (1)

A laboratory course designed to accompany General Chemistry I.  Emphasis is placed on experiments that illustrate the fundamental principles and laws of chemical behavior and engage students in cooperative data acquisition and analysis. Topics include accuracy/precision, qualitative analysis, titrations, atomic spectroscopy, properties of gases and of solutions.  Assessment based on laboratory technique, pre-lab assignments, written laboratory reports, accuracy of analysis, and a final exam.  One four-hour lab per week. Prerequisite or co-requisite: Concurrent registration in CHEM 111, or prior completion of that course with a grade of C or higher.  Offered every semester and summer.
