Electrochemistry and Nuclear Chemistry

You will design and perform two virtual lab experiments for this Case assignment using the ChemCollective website provided by the National Science Foundation and Carnegie Mellon University. Then continue to the Amrita Virtual Lab website to complete the third laboratory exercise.

 

You must have the most current versions of Java and Quicktime in order to use this virtual laboratory!
