A lecture/laboratory manual deals with the analysis of selected inorganic pollutants. The manual is an instructional aid for classroom presentations to those with little or no experience in the field, but having one year (or equivalent) of college level inorganic chemistry and having basic laboratory skills (volumetric glassware, titration assemblies, analytical balances). Topics include: acidity, alkalinity, hardness, chlorine, total phosphorus, fluoride, nitrate and nitrite nitrogen, total and suspended solids, turbidity and specific conductance, sample handling, accuracy, precision and error of data laboratory safety practices and elements of quality assurance programs.
