Subject to change at the instructor's discretion.
The labs last from 1:10 PM till 4:00 PM and take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays primarily in room CB109.
The schedule presumes that two groups are running two different experiments simaltaneuosly then alternate them and then go on to another pair of experiments. The order of the labs has been altered this year for adjusting to a new order of lecturing in Chem 433, 434 sequence. We will have a lecture before a new pair of labs to review the material. Your preparation for each new lab includes reading online material and answering prelab questions (some of them in a written form in your notebooks).
