CHEMISTRY 130LL LAB SCHEDULE Spring 2014
CHEMISTRY 130LL LAB SCHEDULE
You must download and print the CHM 130LL laboratory experiments from the CHM130LL Website
(http://web.gccaz.edu/~kimld88531/chm130Lab.htm). If you are using an off-campus computer, you need to
install a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader (http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html) on your
computer to view and print these documents. You must print and read the lab experiment BEFORE coming
The references in ( ) are sections in the 7th edition textbook that you should review before coming to lab. You
must arrive for lab on time. Your instructor will introduce new techniques, procedures, and safety as well as
briefly review the theory and calculations at the beginning of each lab. Students who arrive too late to receive
critical lab and safety information will not be allowed to complete the lab.
The following is a tentative schedule:

Checkout of unknowns and extra equipment:
Most equipment you will use will be placed in plastic boxes at your lab station. Some experiments require specialized
equipment, which will be dispensed at the instructor's station. When you check out unknowns for the experiment, print
your name and unknown number, and record the unknown number on your Lab Report. Before leaving lab, properly
dispose of waste (see experiment for details), and clean and return all equipment to the appropriate place. Wash your
hands and bench before you leave every lab.
STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR GOGGLES IN THE LAB AT ALL TIMES, EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED
BY THE INSTRUCTOR. Students must wear closed toe and heel shoes, pants/skirt below the knee, and
shirts with sleeves in lab. Jeans/pants with holes from the knee up are not allowed.
Chemistry Department Safety Rules
Wear approved goggles at ALL TIMES in the laboratory. Do not open the goggle vents.
Do not perform unauthorized experiments. Only your laboratory instructor may authorize special experiments.
Wash any spilled chemicals off your person with water as quickly as possible.
Do not touch any chemicals without receiving specific instructions to do so from your instructor.
Do not taste any chemicals.
Smell chemicals only when directed and then with caution.
Insure that any heated glass or metal equipment has cooled adequately before handling.
Use caution in handling all glassware. If a cut occurs, rinse the wound with cold running water until you are sure
there are no small pieces of glass in the cut.
Before you plug in electrical equipment, make sure that the cords are not damaged. Keep cords away from all hot
Know your laboratory’s location for the fire extinguisher, eye bath, and shower.
Wear closed-toe shoes that cover the top of the feet, and appropriate clothing that covers the student from neck
(including shoulders) to below the knees. Jeans with any holes from the knee up are not allowed.
Keep long hair tied back at all times.
Consult the lab procedure for handling waste chemicals.
You are responsible for cleaning the equipment you use as well as your lab workstation.
You must wash your hands with soap and water and wipe your lab bench down with a damp paper towel after every
Report any personal injury, no matter how slight, to your laboratory instructor.
Always read your laboratory exercise completely prior to actual lab time. Be aware that an unprepared worker is an
Upon request, we can provide a list of chemicals used for the semester, as well as the MSDS reports.
CHM Department Policies
1) All students who miss the first lab meeting will be dropped from the roster.
2) All lab students must complete their safety training before performing any experiments.
3) You are expected to be on time for lab. You will not be allowed to work in lab if you miss any part of the vital safety
information and/or demonstrations of techniques.
4) Student lab grades will be reduced by 10% for not having a copy of the lab procedure.
5) Students will not be allowed to perform the lab without approved goggles, closed-toe shoes that cover the top of the
foot, and without clothing that covers the student from neck (including shoulders) to below the knees. These students
must make-up the lab. It is the student’s responsibility to arrange a make-up lab at another time. A locked drawer will
be provided for each lab session to store goggles for the semester.
6) Lab make-up is at the discretion of the instructor and depends on available space. Make-up is allowed during
regularly scheduled lab sections and only during the days that it shows on your schedule. The lab schedule is posted
on the chemistry web site. No more than two labs may be made up. A make-up form needs to be filled out and
attached to the lab report. Note: If your lab has only one section or is at the end of the lab week, you may not be able
to make up lab.
7) If you miss more than 2 labs, without making them up, you will receive a grade of W or Y.
8) Students who withdraw from the lecture within the first 10 weeks must also withdraw from the lab.
9) If you do not turn in the lab report before you leave, obtain the instructor’s initials on your data sheet before leaving
10) Students must always turn in individual lab reports even when working in pairs on a lab procedure, unless stated
otherwise. Your report should be in your own words and not copied from your lab partner.
11) During the semester you will be charged if you break any of the special equipment. Your instructor will inform you
of the replacement costs and the procedure to follow for payment.
12) Arizona Statute ARS15-151 specifies that every student, teacher, and visitor in public and private schools, community
colleges, and universities shall wear appropriate eye protective wear while participating in or when observing
vocation, technical, industrial arts, art or laboratory science activities involving exposure to: molten metals or other
molten materials, cutting, shaping and grinding of materials, heat treatment, tempering or kiln firing of any metal or
other materials, welding fabrication processes, explosive materials, caustic solutions, radioactive materials.
