College of Arts & Sciences (WARSC)
General Chemistry Laboratory
Weekly virtual laboratory sessions with experiments related to the material of CHEM 105.

This course is designed as the laboratory component to accompany CHEM

105. It is a one-semester course in general chemistry laboratory. Students will become familiar with the basic chemical laboratory methods and equipment. The laboratory exercises are intended to provide students with practice in problem solving. It is primarily intended for students majoring in Aerospace Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aircraft Engineering Technology and Engineering Physics who have a good background in chemistry at the high school level.

Upon course completion, the student will be able to:1. Determine which variables will be allowed to change and which will be held constant when given a chemical laboratory problem.2. Determine which measurements must be accurate as possible and to choose the properequipment to obtain these readings.3. Develop the manual skills necessary to properly use standard laboratory instruments.4. Manipulate the data to show general trends using graphs where appropriate. Relate experimental data to theory.5. Appreciate the limits of experimental results by the use of significant figures.6. Perform calculations is systematic manner.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
