Welcome to the website for the laboratory portion of General Chemistry (Chemistry 5 and Chemistry 6) at Dartmouth College.  This 2 quarter sequence of courses is designed to introduce the fundamental principles of chemistry, including chemical stoichiometry; the properties of gases, liquids, and solids; solutions; chemical equilibria; atomic and molecular structure; an introduction to thermodynamics; reaction kinetics; and a discussion of the chemical properties of selected elements.  The laboratory portion of the course provides hands-on experience in the laboratory setting and is designed to provide practical applications for many of the concepts and chemical principles learned in class.  Additionally, through presentations and at least one lab students are introduced to current topics in Chemistry research taking place both specifically in the Dartmouth College Chemistry department and elsewhere.
