This hands-on laboratory course teaches a range of chemical laboratory techniques that a lab analyst must master in order to carry out chemical analyses with accuracy and precision. The student will learn the proper laboratory techniques to calibrate and use glassware and dispensers. The student will learn the different weighing methods and proper weighing techniques. The student will learn proper techniques associated with gravity filtration, preparation of a standard solution and carrying out a titration. Through practice of these techniques, the student will develop skills to master these techniques when carrying out chemical analysis of natural samples by using methods such as moisture and ashing, gravimetric separations and analysis, volumetric separation and analysis, acid-base, redox and complexometric determinations, ion exchange separation and analysis, spectrophotometric analysis, and various solvent extractions.
