Dissect a Quantitative Chemical Analysis Paper
The goal of this effort is to learn how to dissect a peer reviewed article into its various parts, by conducting research using primary literature sources.
Describe the article in your own words (not verbatim from the text) including the Background, Methods, Results and Conclusions.
•Write a statement of your response to the article based on background research using primary literature sources.
Grading for Quantitative Chemical Analysis Paper:
-Hypothesis State the hypothesis of the study in your own words.
