Safely synthesize a variety of chemical compounds in a laboratory. 2. Use modern instrumentation and computer interface to analyze and identify standard chemical compounds as well as those synthesized in the laboratory. 3. Write comprehensive laboratory reports to effectively analyze data and communicate results and conclusions. 4. Apply principles of chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, equilibrium, bonding and reactivity to real world situations. EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLAN In the event of an emergency, remain calm and take deliberate action as necessary. In an earthquake, seek cover from falling objects. In most other situations, your instructor will have time to tell you what to do. During a power outage, Bech Hall can be extremely dark. Remain calm and minimize your movement while your eyes adjust and flashlights and glowsticks are located for you. The power in Bech Hall is rarely out for more than 20 minutes at a time. In the event of an evacuation, turn off any flame or heat source you are using and go to the lawn between Bech, Shuhaw and Baker halls. This is our designated assembly area. Wait here, as your instructor will take roll. Copies of the red Emergency Preparedness Handbook are posted throughout the building and have more detailed information and procedures for most imaginable emergencies. Any type of emergency can be reported to the District Police Dispatcher at (707) 527-1000.
