Quantitative Chemical Analysis
CHEM 317
Spring 2025
Section: 01   02  
Crosslisting: E&ES 395

Measurement and chemical analysis are at the very heart of the chemical sciences. Practicing chemists depend heavily on chemical analysis, as do medical professionals, environmental scientists, and many others. Quantitative chemical analysis is the science of determining "how much"--as in, "how much toxic lead is in your drinking water?" In this course, you will first learn how to treat measured chemical data to extract meaningful information, and then we will proceed to study classical methods of chemical analysis, expanding upon your knowledge of general chemistry. A practical laboratory experience will reinforce the curriculum and build your skills as a chemist. This course is part of the required curriculum listed in the American Chemical Society Guidelines for Bachelor's Degree Programs, and this course is highly recommended for students who intend to pursue graduate studies and/or employment in a chemical discipline.
