LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS IN GENERAL CHEMISTRY FEATURING MEASURENET is the first self-directed laboratory manual to incorporate experiments conducted with MeasureNet -- an innovative, network data collection system that introduces students to "real world" chemistry. With the new use of MeasureNet, experiments are more precise, only requiring small quantities of chemicals, making the lab safer and environmentally friendly. This laboratory manual is designed to first prepare students for the laboratory setting through conceptual and technique experiments. Students then work to solve a multi-component question, utilizing what they learned in previous experiments. Through this approach, and with the help of MeasureNet's modern electronic data collection, analysis, and reduction, students truly prepare themselves for conducting chemistry in a professional setting!
