Chemistry 118B Formal Write-up Guide Jared Taylor The write-up should be no more than 3 pages; typed, single-spaced (2 pages should be plenty). You need to include the following sections, and try to be succinct (a great report provides the same info and explanation as an average report, but uses fewer words). Purpose : 1-2 sentences on what you hoped to accomplish and learn from the experiment. Procedure : Simply refer to the pages from the Manual and the Text for the actual procedures. HOWEVER, you must briefly describe each test you performed on the unknown in terms of the chemical reaction (drawn out in full) and how the results indicate a particular functional group. For example, the chromic acid test for alcohols draw out the actual chemical reaction, and explain how the end result (i.e. color change or lack of color change) confirms the presence of an alcohol and the type. The relevant chemical reactions can be found in the course text books.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
