Chemistry 151 Lab Manual
Author(s): Daniel Kleier, Susan Rutkowsky
Chemistry is the study of being and becoming in the material world. It is an experimental science that requires careful observation of physical properties of substances, as well as how they are changed by chemical reactions.
In Chemistry 151: Lab Manual, students will discover how pure elemental matter can light up the dark with spectral brilliance, and feel how it can warm their surroundings with the heat of a chemical reaction. They will measure the potential of metallic elements to power electronic gadgets, and confirm a fundamental gas law by studying the behavior of a mixture of gaseous elements under pressure.
Through experiments that explain the chemical phenomena that students experience in their daily lives, Chemistry 151: Lab Manual links students' experiences with the nanoscale chemical world explored in the laboratory.
