CHM 163: Intro to Chemistry Lab I
Pre-req: CHM Majors or CHM Honors; Co-req: CHM 155
An introduction to chemical laboratory techniques and methods with emphasis on preparation, purification, and identification of compounds, elemental analysis, reaction stoichiometry, chemical ionization, thermochemistry, spectrophotometric techniques, and selective descriptive inorganic chemistry. Most experiments involve the identification of unknowns and statistical analysis of data. The experiments in CHM 163 parallel the topics covered in CHM 155. A written laboratory report summarizing the procedure and results for each experiment is required. Previously offered as CHM 165.
