Experimental Chemistry II--Bioscience (1) A continuation of CHEM 111 with emphasis on topics related to CHEM 112 in the context of bioscience.
CHEM 113B Experimental Chemistry II - Bioscience (1)
CHEM 113B is a one-credit introductory general chemistry laboratory course meant to complement the lecture course CHEM 112. This course builds on material learned in CHEM 111. It has the same goals, and covers similar topics to CHEM 113, and for this reason should count as CHEM 113, regardless of major. The main difference is that CHEM 113B covers chemical topics in the context of experiments with biological relevance. The emphasis is on quantitative analytical procedures. Essential material covered includes proper use of a laboratory notebook, writing of a formal laboratory report, use of the chemistry literature, experimental design, interpretation of data using statistics, laboratory safety procedures, and an appreciation for what instruments can and cannot do. The course introduces laboratory experimentation in the context of a variety of specific topics, for example: alcohols; enzyme kinetics; acid-base equilibria and titrations; separations of compounds using paper and liquid chromatography, separations using gas chromatography. GN credit for CHEM 113B requires that CHEM 112 or CHEM 112H also be completed.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
