First, some quick tips
Aim to travel light. You're moving into a small room with very limited cupboard space and you'll be moving out again in June. One large suitcase of clothes, a couple of boxes
of other stuff and a binliner of bedding is about the rig
Some precautions:
=> Experiments involving poisonous gases like Nitrogen DIOXIDE, Ammonia and Bromine -> Carry out
the exp. in Fume Cupboard or in a well Ventilated Room.
=> Experiments involving heat -> Use a polystyrene cup for insulation to prevent hea

Functions of multiple [two] variables
In many applications in science and engineering, a function of interest depends on multiple
variables. For instance, the ideal gas law p = R
