Each of the 15 experiments in this book kicks off with a case study designed to engage high-school and college-level chemistry students. Immerse them in the excitement of solving crimes through hands-on experimentation using Vernier sensors such as pH, pressure, conductivity, and temperature to investigate complex questions involving forensics. Students explore gas pressure through a failed bottle rocket launch, Beer’s law through a case of poisoned wine, and even more through engaging forensics investigations.
