Chemical Principles in the Laboratory (9TH 09 - Old Edition)by Emil Slowinski
Synopses & Reviews
Succeed in chemistry with CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES IN THE LABORATORY, Ninth Edition! Clear, user-friendly, and direct, this lab manual provides you with the tools you need to successfully complete lab experiments and lab reports. Analyzing the data you observe in the lab sessions is easy with the Advance Study Assignments, found throughout the manual, that give you extra practice with processing data through sample questions.
Book News Annotation:
This spiral bound lab manual contains pages punched for a three-ring binder and perforated, so worksheets can be cleanly removed from the binder and submitted for correction. The 43 experiments correlate with the text Chemistry, principles and reactions, 6th ed. by Masterton and Hurley. The ninth edition adds an experiment on determining the solubility product of barium iodate and an introduction to Excel in the appendices.

About the Author
Emil J. Slowinski is an Emeritus DeWitt Wallace Professor of Chemistry at Macalester College. He earned a B.S. degree from Massachusetts State College in 1946 and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1949. He taught at Swarthmore College, 1949-1952; the University of Connecticut, 1952-1964; and Macalester College, 1964-1988. His sabbatical leaves were at Oxford University in 1960 and the University of Warsaw in 1968. He is a co-author, with Bill Masterton and/or Wayne Wolsey, of more than 25 books on various areas of general chemistry. He was actively involved in all editions of CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES IN THE LABORATORY up through the 9th edition, and though now retired from active writing still offers insights, advice, and support to his coauthors. Wayne C. Wolsey, an inorganic chemist, received his B.S. from Michigan State University in 1958 and his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1962. He joined the Macalester College faculty in 1965 and is now in "semi-retirement." His last three sabbaticals were spent at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In 2001-2002, he investigated various complexing agents for their effectiveness in dissolving calcium oxalate kidney stones, in collaboration with a former student, now a urologist. He has received various awards, including the Minnesota College Science Teacher of the Year in 1989; Macalester's Thomas Jefferson Award in 1993; designation as a MegaMole contributor to Minnesota Chemical Education in 1997; and an award from the Minnesota State AAUP Conference in 2001 for his support of academic freedom and shared governance. He remains professionally active in a number of scientific organizations.
