reading depending on the course of study pursued by the student. The student ‘
micro- first becomes familiar with the reactions involved in the detection of the ·‘ `
a solid elements and then employs the knowledge so gained in the analysis of
. stand- solids and of substances in solution. · ··
in upon Quantitative Analysis. The preliminary work in Quantitative
Analysis includes the gravimetic analysis of simple substances of known .
abus of composition and such work in volumetric analysis as shall enable the i
student to become familiar with the use of "n0rmal" solutions and ,
iatomy; acquire facility in the calculation of results. Subsequent work embraces
Amer- the analysis of ores, iron and steel, alloys, coal and coke, water,
silicates, flue gases, paint, fertilizers, and a variety of other commercial
products. All work is accompanied by lecture and recitation exercises,
where particular attention is given to the chemistry of the processes
ent of used- _ _ _ _
Organic Chemistry. The more advanced work in the chemistry of
the Carbon Compounds is prcceded by a brief general survey of the
whole subject. The laboratory course of study in the preparation and
purification of typical organic compounds extends throughout the sem-
els, ester and is therefore arranged to accompany and supplement the class-
room instruction.
Physical Chemistry. This subject is studied by means of lectures
y must and recitations, followed by laboratory exercises designed to acquaint
ad from the student with the execution of physico-chemical measurements.
scribed Industrial Chemistry. The chemistry of industrial and manufac-
Indus- turing processes is studied throughout the Senior year, at a time when
the student is best equipped for the purpose. As preliminary courses,
ieneral advanced Quantitative Analysis, Organic and Inorganic Preparations
ialysib, are of the greatest value. To keep in touch with modern practices,
gricul- current periodical literature is carefully studied and manufacturing
establishments are visited.
emistry Buildings and Equipment. The building formerly occupied by the
ts who Experiment Station is now devoted entirely to Chemistry and is supple- `
ren by mented by a new building costing $25,000. The equipment includes such
ifudellt apparatus and chemicals as to enable the student to carry on Work _
Bills all I Hdvantageously. There is a very complete and modern outfit for the V
metals analysis of Hue gases, apparatus for the determination of molecular
ialysis. weights, platinum ware, apparatus of approved design for the analysis
es sim- of water and an excellent equipment for the study of the compounds of
carbon. A very important adjunct to the equipment is the Department -
vratory Library of about five hundred volumes. The very complete library of
B wvrk the Experiment Station is available at all times for consultation. A
