Lab Schedule for Chem0710, Fall 2017

Each experiment manual can be downloaded separately by clicking on the experiment title link.

The grading rubric should be stapled to the front of your report when handing it in. 
Make sure to also upload your report to the Box folder. To upload your lab report go to Box through my.pitt.edu and do the following:
    -  Go to the folder that corresponds to the lab experiment report you are submitting
    -  Make sure your file is a *.pdf file format
    -  Make sure the file size is less than 15 Mb.
    -  Make sure the file name follows the form exp#_lastname_firstinitial_class.pdf.  For example, exp1_Wagner_E_W1pm.pdf.  File names that do not match this naming system will not be accepted.
