CHEM C2000 is a complete introduction to the most
important topics in chemistry. Discover how fascinating the world is
when you know the chemistry behind how everyday things work.
turns the ordinary occurrences around us into remarkable events. You
will start with fun experiments to learn basic chemistry principles.
Build a mini fire extinguisher and float a soap-powered boat. Write with
invisible ink and test colored markers on the chromatography racetrack.
Entertain your friends with "magic" tricks, and then
enlighten them with the scientific explanations behind the magic. Make
dazzling colors in flame tests and produce electricity in a test tube.
After you have some lab experience, you will learn how to use the
alcohol burner and perform experiments that require heat.
mixtures, add carbon dioxide to water and produce oxygen gas from
hydrogen peroxide. Experiment with fuels and combustion. Make your own
hydrochloric acid. Learn how chemistry helps us in cooking and cleaning.
Prepare a substance that glows in the dark.
to build a strong foundation in chemistry with exposure to a broad range
of chemical phenomena and hands-on lab experience. Gain experience with
the most important tools in the modern chem lab.
Professor Probenius, your chemistry
professor, provides clear instructions for preparing and performing the
experiments, offers safety advice, gives explanations for the observed
occurrences, and asks and answers questions about the results. Thorough
safety precautions and instructions ensure safe experimentation.
