A chemistry laboratory is a workshop for chemists. Here students learn the techniques of the preparation, identification and estimation of chemical substances. Before starting experiment, a student must know from where to get the apparatus required for the given experiment and the placement of the chemicals to be used.
There are some few steps:
- Preparation: Read the lab write up carefully before attending the lab. Some of the labs have pre-labs associated with it. Complete the pre-labs. Prelabs are designed so that you have beforehand experience on what the lab would look like and what are the concepts/equations you need to know.
- Lab Report: Unless your TA instructs otherwise, you should turn in your completed lab work at the end of the lab period.
- Attendance: Lab attendance is mandatory.
- Safety and Cleanup: please clean up your table after completing the lab. Turn off power supply, throw away trash, and mop up any spills.
