1. Phenomenal Chemistry
1. Phenomenal Chemistry.
This is an elementary course in chemistry, following some suitable text-book, and consists mainly in recitations, illustrated, as far as practicable, by experiments and diagrams. The writing of reactions, calculating of quantities by weight and volume, determining of changes in the volume of gases through changes in temperature and pressure and the establishing of formulas upon proper physical facts accompany the work throughout. The course is designed to be complete within itself, and while giving the student the facts and formal principles of the science, to serve, at the same time, as an introduction to the study of rational chemistry, taught later. All students of the University, excepting those in law, must complete this course before they can receive a diploma or certificate, or before they can be admitted to other classes in this department.—First Semester, daily, from 11-12.
