Feenstra, T. P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1979
The calculation of concentrations in the case of many simultaneous equilibria can be reduced to a search for a local minimum of a function of n variables, in which n denotes the number of mass balances involved. The method is simple and time-saving, but requires the availability of a computer. (author/BB)

Kenkel, John – Journal of Chemical Education, 1986
Discusses the need for hands-on training for technician-level chemists. Describes a technician training program at Southeast Community College that emphasizes wastewater plant operations and laboratories. Outlines the course sequence for the six-quarter environmental laboratory technician curriculum. (TW)

Earl, Boyd L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1989
Notes that the rigorous kinetic theory, based on the Boltzmann equation, does not yield exact results although some texts claim this to be so. Stresses that they should be presented as approximations with an indication that refinements in the values are possible. (MVL)

Batt, Russell H., Ed. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1988
Notes two uses of computer spreadsheets in the chemistry classroom. Discusses the general use of the spreadsheet to easily provide changing parameters of equations and then replotting the results on the screen. Presents a molecular orbital spreadsheet calculation of the LCAO-MO approach. Supplies representative printouts and graphs. (MVL)

Miller, Dennis J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1978
Conflicting views have been put forward on the derivation of the distribution of solubilized molecules among micelles. This stems from failure to consider the arrangement of the solubilized molecules in the micelles. In the treatment presented enthalpy effects are ignored as they are not amenable to a simple general theory. (Author/BB)
