About This Chapter
Experimental Laboratory Chemistry - Chapter Summary
If you're ready to put the concepts you've learned in your chemistry classroom to work in the lab, check out the video lessons included in this chapter. Instructors can walk you through some of the practices used to safely conduct experiments and introduce you to the right tools for the job. Once you're familiar with the assortment of flasks, Bunsen burners, and test tubes at your disposal, find out how you can use them to conduct flame tests and other procedures. In addition to our short video lessons, a flashcard set will help you boost your knowledge of lab equipment. This chapter is designed to help you:
- Analyze what a combustion reaction is through examples
- Identify the supplies that are used in a chemistry lab
- Describe methods of ensuring chemistry lab safety and accuracy
- Explain the methods and supplies needed to test for chemicals in solution
1. Chemistry Lab Safety & Accuracy Procedures & Equipment
Working safely and collecting accurate data are the two most important parts of working in a chemistry lab. This lesson will give tips so you can succeed in both areas.
2. Chemistry Lab Equipment: Supplies, Glassware & More
When you bake a cake, you use different tools for each step in the process: a bowl for mixing, cups for measuring ingredients and an oven for baking. In this lesson, you will discover the name and purpose of many of the different tools that are used in the chemistry lab.
3. How to Identify Chemicals in Solution: Test Methods & Materials
Do you have a mysterious solution sitting around? Learn to identify it using one of the following methods: through precipitation, using conduction, using a flame test, using an acid-base indicator and observing the color of the solution.
4. Combustion Reaction: Definition & Examples
Chemical reactions occur every day. Some of them are quite useful to us. In this lesson, you will learn about chemical reactions that are known as combustion reactions.
Chemistry Lab Equipment Flashcards
Chemistry labs are full of specialized tools that you can use to conduct different types of experiments. These flashcards will help you identify the most common equipment found in the lab.
