Problem Session: Thurs 2:00 pm, Angell B112
Problems:

Answers to the review questions and exercises can be found in the solutions manual. I will answer any questions about the problems and old exams during the scheduled review sessions. While it is strongly recommended that you do as many problems as possible, the problems are not collected and do not count towards your grade. I would like to emphasize that chemistry is mainly a problem solving course and the more problems you can do the better.

B. SUGGESTED READING :
Text: " Chemistry, A Molecular Approach " 1st ed , by Nivaldo Tro is sold at the UVM
bookstore. The solutions manual that comes with the text has the complete solutions
to all the assigned problems. The study guide while not required can be a help with
problem solving.
Lab Manuals: "Chemistry 32, Experiments ", which is sold at the first floor stockroom,

A-143 Cook, for $10.00
Lab Notebook: A notebook with carbon-less copies is required.
Notes and Old Tests: The notes and tests that were given to my Chemistry 32 class the

last 2 years can be purchased from the first floor stockroom for $5.00.
While the questions will change the format will remain the same.
C. Laboratory:
Time:

Mon-Tues-Wed and/or Fri, 1:10-4:00 pm; Rm, A240 or 242 Cook
TAs:
Attendance:

Students must attend the lab section they are assigned to. Official
documentation of sickness or family crisis is required if a lab is missed.
Unexcused absences will result in a ZERO grade for that experiment.

Lab Videos: Prior to the attending a lab session it is mandatory to watch the video
that accompanies that lab. The videos demonstrate the proper use of new
equipment, and the safe handling of chemicals. The videos are found at
www.uvm.edu/~wcleaver/32Videos.htm.

Breakage Card: A breakage card ( $40.00 ) must be purchased from the first floor stockroom, A-143 Cook, prior to your first lab. The $40.00 is refundable, and if you are careful and avoid breaking your equipment you should get all or most of it back. Remember don't leave home without it as you must have it with you to be admitted into lab.

Safety Eyewear: OSHA approved eye wear must be worn by everyone once any
experimentation has started in any area of the lab room. Students found not
observing this rule will receive a ZERO for that experiment,

warnings will not be given. Safety eye wear can be purchased at the
UVM bookstore. CONTACT LENSES are a hazard and should not
be worn in the laboratory. If contacts are the only type of corrective lenses
then you must let you know TA know you are wearing them.
Lab Attire:

Shoes that cover the toes must be worn at all times. Short-shorts and cut off
t-shirts are not allowed (the chest, stomach and legs down to the knees must be
covered). When working with a Bunsen burner long hair must be tied back.
Lab jackets and aprons are recommended, not required.

Foot Wear: Only shoes that cover the toes are permitted in the lab. Sandals and open toed
shoes are not permitted
Lab Notebook: A notebook with carbon-less copies is required for recording lab data. All data
is to be recorded in ink.

2. How to calculate your points
a) Class = 800pts
4 hr Exams = 4 grades
1
Final = 2 grades
6 grades - 1 grade = 5 grades x 1.6 = class pts

Will only count five grades. Therefore, if the final is your lowest grade it will only count once. If one of the hour exams is your lowest grade then one of the grades for the final will replace that low exam grade.

The 1.6 factor is because each test was only worth 100 pts, and therefore the
maximum number of points obtainable from the tests are 500. In order to raise this
to 800 pts you must multiply the 500 x 1.6 = 800.
