The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I just snuck into one of the chemistry labs here at Wheaton, and I am here with my friend. Call it and Colin's going to show us around because I am not currently in a lab. I have one next semester, but I don't know much about them so far. So he's going to give us a little introduction as to what labs are what they look like and you take it away. I was in here last semester when I was in in my general chemistry class. If you look over here, these are what we call a few homes. We'll deal with chemicals that may have, you know, certain fuse or give off. Gases that are unhealthy are very powerful, and they have vacuums on the sides on it. It'll send it straight up and out of the building so that we're not having possibly anything dangerous in the lab. We just have our General Seitz computers that used bottles of de ionized water. That's you know what we use in a lot of experiments when it calls for water. These are scales we use to measure are different either minerals or chemicals or Alvis that we're using their experience. Oh, this is the desk where usually the teacher TA will sit during the labs. So watch over you and you can always come up to them and ask for advisors asked for help. On the way lab is usually run is that it starts out with a brief overview of what you're going to be doing during their lab. Then they give a, you know, a brief explanation of the science behind what we're doing. They give you a list of all the materials you need to use, and then the procedure you're going to be doing. Uh, then it pretty much, you know, goes on from there. Either you or your lab partner start the experiments and you use materials that hell in your lab ins. Each one is listening, and you get a key at the beginning of the semester. Then this will have all of your chemistry supplies that you need from me and threw out the entire semester being beakers for spatulas, tons of measuring materials just so that you can, you know, do the different experiments. Then by the end of the lab, you'll have the ta or the teacher. Check your results, and then you can go on from there. How long does it usually last? They're blocked out for about two and a half hours, and it just depends on the lab. So it depends on how well you do the experiment and how long the experience usually takes.
