Courses - Chemistry 201: Quanitative Analysis

Kumar Sinniah, Chemistry and Biochemistry

Chem 201 students investigated the water quality on ponds at Calvin College and the air quality on Calvin College's campus. Students working on the water quality project analyzed for anions, cations, alkalinity, total dissolved solids, water hardness, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, algal concentration, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on the four ponds located on the campus's premises. These parameters will be monitored over the next several years by students taking chemistry 201. Students investigating air quality tried to answer the following basic questions: What chemical components are present in the air? How does indoor air quality relate to outdoor air quality. These students monitored the air primarily to investigate for volatile organic compounds.
