P201 Web Resources

These videos present equipment used in the Indiana University P201 Laboratories. They have been produced to help students familiarize themselves with the equipment before going to the labs. The videos are intentionally short. They are not intended to be a detailed explanation of how to do the labs. Unless otherwise told by your lab instructor, if there are conflicts between what the video demonstrates and what the lab manual asks for, the lab manual should always be used.
