Summary: This clearly written, class-tested manual has long given students essential hands-on training with key experiments. Designed to work with any general chemistry textbook but exceptionally compatible with Jones/Atkins, Chemistry: Molecules, Matter and Change, 4/e, this extensively revised edition offers a number of new features to enhance the student's lab experience, and expanded information on applications to real world situations.
Clear instruction ...show mores and illustrations
All experiments available as lab separates
In general, all experiments can be covered in one lab session.
New labs on intermolecular forces (20), analysis of seawater--a three-lab project (35), and acid rain (44)
Guide to which experiments correspond to the material covered with which chapters in Jones/Atkins, Chemistry: Molecules, Matter and Change, 4/e (for introductory courses) and Atkins/Jones, Principles of Chemistry (for honors courses)
A new "Consider This" feature gives instructors the opportunity to show students how the experiment is applied to the real world of chemical research and presents opportunities for further inquiry.
