More About This Textbook

Overview

With a focus on real-world applications and a conversational tone, this laboratory manual contains 28 experiments written specifically to correspond with Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, Second Edition by Nivaldo J. Tro. Each experiment covers one or more topics discussed within a chapter of the textbook, with the dual goal of 1) helping students understand the underlying concepts covered in the lecture course, and 2) presenting this material in a way that is interesting and exciting.

Laboratory Basics: Accuracy and Precision – Who’s the Shooting Champion? (Chapter 1); Components of a Mixture – What Is That Stuff in the Bottom of the Cereal Box? (Chapter 1); Cathode Ray Tubes, Millikin Oil Drop, and Avogadro’s Number (Chapters 2 and 3); Conservation of Mass and Reaction Types: Copper Recovery Cycle (Chapters 2 and 4); Equivalent Weights and the Periodic Table (Chapter 2); Hydrates (Chapter 3); Gas Laws (Chapter 5); Styrofoam Cup Calorimetry: Atomic Weights (Chapter 6); Chemiluminescence: Glow Stick in a Beaker (Chapter 6); Atomic Spectra (Chapter 7); Reactivity of Group 1 Metals: Yes Mom, I Threw Sodium into Water in Class Today (Chapter 8); Flame Tests: Flames and Smoke Bombs (Chapters 7 and 8); VSEPR and Molecular Models (Chapter 9 and 10); Simulating the Shroud of Turin: An Inquiry-based Experiment (Just for fun); Observe the Rainbow: Paper Chromatography (Chapter 11); Sublimation (Chapter 11); Colligative Properties: Freezing Point Depression (Chapter 12); Diet Coke and Mentos: An Inquiry-based Experiment (Chapter 13); Kinetics: Testing for Semen–Acid Phosphatase (Chapter 13); Chemical Equilibrium and LeChatelier’s Principle – (Chapter 14); Far from Equilibrium: Creating Life in a Beaker? (Chapter 14); Acid-Base Titration (Chapter 15); Determining the Buffer Capacity of Antacids (Chapter 16); Entropy: The Chelate Effect (Chapter 17); Redox Reactions: Detecting Traces of Blood (Chapter 18); Radioactivity (Chapter 19); Qualitative Analysis (Chapters 14-16, 24); Group I Cations; Group II Cations: “I Love the Smell of Hydrogen Sulfide – It Smells Like Victory”; Piltdown Man and Scientific Ethics; Group IV Cations; Anions; Esters (Chapter 20); Which Compounds Are Genotoxic or Carcinogens? Cleaving Plasmid DNA and Gel Electrophoresis (Chapter 21).

For students taking general chemistry courses with a laboratory component.
