DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: CHEMISTRY
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: A one-semester course that stresses quantitative analytical techniques in the laboratory, an introduction to instrumental analysis, and the chemical principles on which they are based. (Offered Winter Semester)
DESCRIPTION: A one-semester course that stresses quantitative analytical techniques in the laboratory, an introduction to instrumental analysis, and the chemical principles on which they are based.
TOPICS: Lecture topics include error analysis and the statistical treatment of experimental data; sampling and analysis techniques; chemical equilibrium topics applied to chemical analysis; and selected topics in instrumental analysis, including electrochemistry, spectrophotometry, and chromatography. The laboratory includes a focus on accuracy and precision in measurement; practice in wet chemistry techniques such as titration and gravimetric analysis; and exposure to selected instrumental methods of analysis.
OBJECTIVES: To learn wet chemical and instrumental methods of analysis; to learn to carry out these methods with precision and accuracy; and to critically evaluate the results of these analyses.
REQUIREMENTS: Varies depending on the instructor. With two hours of lecture and six hours of laboratory per week, the grade will be based primarily on performance in the laboratory. Attendance is required.
