Experiments on Rate of Chemical Reactions.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand).
This laboratory manual, part of a series of instruction books on basic experimental chemistry, is designed to provide the secondary school students of developing countries in Asia with laboratory experiences that bring out the fundamental concepts and ideas of chemical kinetics. Taking into consideration the possibility of limited facilities of the school laboratories, the authors have (1) designed the experiments on semi micro-scale, (2) suggested the use of inexpensive equipment and chemicals, and (3) selected experiments which enable students to follow the course and rate of reaction by visual indication, instead of using more sophisticated instrumental techniques. Each experiment is introduced by a statement of objective(s), followed by a detailed description of the procedure. Important points of the principles on which the experiment is based, are given in the "Discussion" section. Sample questions on each experiment are provided and the answers to these are summarized at the end of the book. The appendix contains a discussion of (1) the mole and molarity, and (2) the use of the slide rule. (LC)
