Notes:  Although this laboratory section of CHEM 1110 does not give separate credit, it does represent 30% of your overall grade for the course.  You will have one 'drop lab' which you can use to drop your lowest lab report or one you were not able to attend.  There are no makeup labs.

Safety in the lab is of the utmost importance!  You will be instructed in the safe use of all lab equipment, safety procedures, and the location of all safety equipment. You must wear safety glasses AT ALL TIMES.  You are also required to wear long pants and closed shoes (no shorts, skirts, or sandals).  If you are not properly attired, you will not be allowed in the lab.  There is no eating or drinking allowed in the lab (don't even bring food items into the lab).
