INTENDED as an alternate edition of this well known laboratory manual, all the experiments of the original manual m e retained, several new experiments have been added, and many questions, problems, and other material have been added or changed. Thus, instructors may alternate between the old manual and this new one. Experiments (34-38) emphasizing the principles of ionic equilibria precede those on qualitative analysis ( 3 9 4 ) . Ex-

ARRANGED in the sequence suitable to accompanying the authors' text, this manual consists of 31 experiments of medium difficulty, designed far three hours of laboratory a week for one year. Although most experiments are more or less traditional in type, many of them are conducted with a quantitative emphasis. No systematic qualitative analysis is included although there are a few experiments illustrating analytical principles and interpretations. All experiments are perforated and punched in order to facilitate handing them in for correction of experimental results and answers to questions and subsequent filing in standard notebooks for later reference. In the appendix are lists of equipment needed per locker and supplies needed per experiment.


other texts. For each exexperiment there are iniluded perforated sheets for reports of experimental data, calculations, exercises, and problems. For the benefit of teachers the manual is available in combinetion with a "Teachers Manual" of 44 pages, ufhich contains suggestions for conducting experiments, lists of supplies, suggestions for quizzes and examinations, and answers to prohlems and other a~signmentn.
