A Course of Instruction in Quantitative Chemical Analysis for Beginning Students: With Explanatory Notes, Questions, and Analytical Problems

    Abstract

    PROF. SMITH'S book is intended for students who have completed a year's work in elementary chemistry, including qualitative analysis, and are beginning the study of quantitative analysis. In England a certain amount of volumetric analysis is usually included in the first year's course at the university, so that some of the second half of this book could be used with intermediate students. The directions are usually arranged under the headings of “Method,” in which a brief but fully adequate account of the process is given; “Procedure for the Determination,” in which all the needful practical details of manipulation are described, so that the work of the demonstrator may be reduced to a minimum; and, finally, “Notes,” in smaller type, which give the reasons for the procedure, equations, theoretical explanations (in which physical chemical conceptions are explained and used), and practical hints. The book, which is attractive in appearance, is the work of an experienced teacher and can be recommended with confidence.
