Chemistry in the laboratory: a study of chemical and physical changes

Front Cover
Wiley, 1996 - Science - 416 pages
This manual has gained a reputation as one that enables students to develop a keen interest and appreciation of chemistry from a background relatively void of exposure to chemical phenomena. Consists of 18 major techniques which illustrate the proper way to perform various laboratory operations, 39 experiments utilizing basic lab skills and equipment and four appendices that provide reference information used throughout the text. Extensive line drawings and photographs depict the construction of the proper laboratory apparatus and the plotting of data.
