General Laboratory Information CHM-201 Fall 2009 1/4 General Chemistry I and Lab -- CHM 201 (Sections 03) GENERAL LABORATORY INFORMATION Fall Session 2009 Laboratory Instructor: Dr. Yan Lin, Laboratory Manual: Laboratory Handbook for General Chemistry , 3 rd Ed., Griswold, Neidig, Spencer and Stanitski, Thompson Learning (Brooks/Cole) 2007 IMPORTANT NOTE: This information is meant to be in addition to that in the course syllabus regarding the laboratory. Laboratory Reports: There will be three sections to each laboratory report as described below. Please be sure to include your name and your group members’ names on the first page of your laboratory report. 1. The Laboratory write-up (50 points): This is a two to three page written report containing the following sections with point distributions in parentheses. Introduction (5 points): A brief statement of the goals of the laboratory session. Experimental Method (10 points): What experiments were performed and how the experiments were run during the session. You should specifically include what you measured and the methods or equipment used to make these measurements. Results and raw data are not normally included in this section since the results should be presented in the discussion section. Note that this should describe in a general sense the procedure followed in the lab session but it is not meant to be a detailed procedure. Discussion (30 points): Describe what was discovered during the laboratory session. What were the results (either qualitative or quantitative) you obtained? How well do you know these results? Did the results confirm what was expected? If not then why are they different? Can you explain your results in some greater framework? Does it support what you have learned in the lecture part of the course or is it in conflict with the lecture material? Can you explain any discrepancy between what you found in the lab session and what might be predicted? In terms of organization you may find it useful to break up the lab into sections (as is often done in the procedure) and dedicate a paragraph to each section starting with the final result and demonstrating clearly how it was obtained and how confident you are in this data. Conclusion (5 points):
