The class presentation will be a topic of modern electrochemistry (we will teach each other, active class participation will be encouraged), selected within the first three weeks of the course. The DigiSim project is essentially an experiment done using a Windows based computer program. You can copy the program on your own machine, but to run it, you will need a hardware key (dongle). We have only one available, so some advance scheduling will be required.
Chemistry 555 Topics for projects with DigiSim program
Projects are due: November 26, 1998 (This is Monday, you may turn it in earlier. That way I can show in class some of the more interesting results.)
CV COMPUTER SIMULATION SCHEDULE
8 students in this class, all have to pick a week when they will have exclusive use of the hardware key. (Since this page is accessible to the whole word, I am not listing the names.)
16 November Computer assignment is due
