Course content

- The purpose of the course is to give laboratory experience and competence to students with a passed exam in a theoretically focused course in general chemistry. The course aims to give the studente an improved appreciation of her previous obtained knowledge in general chemistry and thereby a competence corresponding to a passed exam in KJ1000 General Chemistry.
- Students who are given admittance to the course as students in the course KJ1000 will not be given credits (studiepoeng) for the course alone, without a previous exam in general chemistry, as mentioned above.

Learning outcome

- The course will,together with the previous course in general chemistry, give a competence which qualify for exception to KJ1000 where this is required course.
- The HSE-lecture and HSE-work throughout the semester will give a general understanding of how to work safely in the laboratory.

Learning methods and activities

- Laboratory work (approx. 10 hours per week for 10 weeks incl. writing of reports).
- A compulsory HSE lecture must be attended for admittance to the laboratory course. This lecture will normally be given in week no. 35.
- The students are themselves responsible for acquiring information, including information about compulsory activities, from NTNU's web pages, especially Blackboard. If in doubt, contact the Department of Chemistry. More information about the schedule and contents of compulsory activities will be given by the course coordinator at the beginning of the semester.
