Overview

With a focus on real-world applications and a conversational tone, this laboratory manual contains experiments written specifically to correspond with Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, Third 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. This manual contains twenty-eight experiments with a focus on real world applications. Each experiment contains a set of pre-laboratory questions, an introduction, a step-by-step procedure (including safety information), and a report section featuring post-laboratory questions. Additional features include a section on laboratory safety rules, an overview on general techniques and equipment, as well as a detailed tutorial on graphing data in Excel.
