- Chemistry in the Modern World Laboratory - Chem 1002
The idea of this lab course is to introduce you to things that chemists do when they work in a lab. Indeed, they do put smelly liquids in little test tubes and make mysterious white powders that work 47 times faster and clean "whiter than white." There is, however, a more important thread which runs through chemistry and most other experimental sciences. The chemist generally has a question that is in need of an answer. She/he will go to the laboratory and do an experiment in order to try and answer the question. That is the most important aspect of chemistry for you to see in this course.
